Joseph Stephen Denslaw, III

We have a new member of the family!  Joseph Stephen Denslaw, III made his arrival on March 8, 2011 at 3:09pm.  He weight 6 pounds 8 oz and was 49 cm long (which I think is about 19-20 inches).

He was born with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). We knew it was a possibility, but were still shocked when he was born.  He was missing skin on his wrists, both knees, ankles, top of the feet and on one leg, he is missing most skin from the knee to the ankle.  So compared to Sami and Garrett, he is the most severe when it comes to skin loss at birth. But so far he is doing really well!  He is eating 30cc's or more every 3 hours!  He does well during dressing changes and so far is an overall happy baby:)

I will post more about his birth story soon.  I am going home today and as of last night so is he, so once we are home a settled I will post more.  Here are a few picture for you!


  1. What a beautiful baby! Congratulations!

  2. So glad to see pictures, Sara! He's adorable! So those large polkadot mittens. :)Glad to hear that he's in good spirits, and it sounds like you are too.
