Hey guys! Sorry for being away for so long but my Lil Man decided to show up a little earlier than anticipated! Isn’t he precious!?!?
I was due on July 5th but I started having contractions on the evening of the 26th. Then the lil guy decided to hold out until the morning of the 29th before he made his final appearance! Yep – 58 hours total and I did most of it unmedicated. I gave out at 56 hours since we had to push a little Pitocin to get me from 9 to 10. (I stalled out at 9 for a couple of hours.) It was an experience I don’t think I would change how I did it – but it sure took a toll on my energy levels for a couple of days.
When the Lil Man did arrive he was truly LITTLE! He was only 5 lbs 11 oz and 19.5 inches long! But he is really strong and is doing great! Below is his 4th of July photo!
So between not sleeping through contractions and then not sleeping through the night with this little guy – I have not had a whole lot of presence of mind to blog! But that is ok because he is just perfect!
I wanted to share these pics with you guys since I know so many of you have been anticipating his arrival. I am going to be taking a short break from regular posting but I have some GREAT guest posters that have offered to pitch in and share some of their ideas with you guys! So stay tuned for those starting soon!
