he’s finally here!

our baby boy arrived into this world on tuesday, april 29th at 4:38pm, weighing in at a whopping 9 pounds 3 ounces.   we were just discharged today.  we had to stay an extra night because they thought he might need phototherapy for a bit of jaundice but he didn’t.  he’s a real trooper, our little guy.

it was a long haul involving falling out epidurals and unbelievable back labour, and ended up with a full spinal and forceps in the OR….

our little man is amazing. 

full story and a picture (and maybe a name! we still haven’t decided yet) to come soon.  i’ve been quite nauseous all day.  little man is sleeping so i’m going to try to do the same.

thank you all again for your love and support.  i feel it.  i really do.

Biggest congratulations to you! Can’t wait to see some pictures…and to find out his name.
I was nauseated for about a week after Thea’s birth. I hope it doesn’t last that long for you.
But, all of my muscle issues cleared up within a week, so I hope your carpal tunnel goes away so quickly too.
Much love to you three!
