We Do Have a Baby!
By Brooke Davidoff
August 16, 2010
Myles Grady Robertson was born July 15, 2010 -- 7 pounds 4 ounces. I got thrush in the hospital and am STILL sick and trying to get used to my new sleep schedule. My mother was in town for a week from California and so I have been running around like a crazy person, still sick, schlepping the baby everywhere. So far his blood work is back and he's HIV negative!!!
Now I can't seem to keep down foods. I'm on a liquid diet and that sucks. But someday I'll feel better, right?
