On his Daddy's birthday, 9/27/13 at 820pm, our son ushered into our world. Weighing in at 8lbs 13oz and 20 1/2 inches long. He is absolutely beautiful. He nurses very well and was almost back to his birth weight on his one week weight check. He has been a little jaundice, but even that is almost gone. He LOVES having a bath and his hair washed and he LOVES sitting in the sun. He is an excellent baby, sleeping pretty good at this point. None of my girls liked baths and especially hated having their heads washed.
There is a special feeling about being an older more experienced Mom. I can't really even describe what it feels like and how incredibly blessed i feel to be given this opportunity to be a new Mom again.
My labor was long, but so worth every minute. I did get very sick after coming home and spent additional time in the hospital with preeclampsia post partum. Never can I remember having pain in my head so bad. Recovery is slow but sure and now we just need to find our new routine at home.
I'm in love all over again.
