Kyle Clark Bollinger

Announcing the arrival of our beautiful baby boy--Kyle Clark Bollinger. He was born last Thursday Sept. 3rd and weighed 6# 13 oz. He is absolutely adorable and we are thrilled to have him here.
He has a fair amount of dark brown hair and the perfect little features of an angelic newborn.
He has had a bit of an issue with some high bili levels which in turn have caused some extra-sleepless nights but he seems to have turned the corner and his levels are dropping now instead of rising so we are hoping that the near-constant feedings can be reduced after Tuesday.
My mom and dad have been here to help and I must say that they have indeed been a Godsend!!! I cannot imagine what I would have done last week without them. I'm not quite sure how I will ever be able to show them or let them know how much I appreciate their sacrifices in coming all the way up here and in working so hard to help take care of me and my family. Maybe that is the nature of children--we never really appreciate the extent to which our parents sacrifice and love their children--at least until we have children of our own and begin to make sacrifices of our own.
I certanly am enjoying this new little baby though. Knowing that this is my last, I am a little more conscious of the passing time and how fleeting it is and I hope that I will not worry about the hardships of a newborn and will just enjoy being with him, cuddling him, smelling him, kissing him and just loving him.

Happy NewBorn Baby!! I am so glad that things are improving for Kyle. I wish I could come see him. It seems everyone i knew that was pregnant in Moscow, has finally
"popped" so I am sad to not see all these cute bundles of joy. I am glad you had family to help you out!! That is definitely a blessing. Good luck, i look forward to seeing more pictures in the future.

Congratulations Bollingers. He is adorable. I know what you mean about having help. It was so nice to have both sets of grandparents come when we had the newest one. I don't think I would have survived without them. Enjoy him being so little. I already miss the newness of our little guy and he is still pretty new. I can't wait to see more pictures of your little guy.
