Reuben Philip was born at home on Friday, July 17, 2009 at 8:42pm
after only 3 hours of active labor. He weighs 8 pounds, 6 ounces, and
his 21 inches long. He immediately took to nursing, and he is a calm,
understanding little guy. I'll post a birth story later!

Thanks! My older son is warming up now. He spent this morning and the early afternoon being careful not to acknowledge Reuben's existence. We didn't push it, and gradually he started asking questions and making suggestions (when Reuben was crying he said I should nurse him, and once he asked if the baby needed the Boppy pillow). He has asked to touch him, and he's wanting to share books and toys with him. It's very sweet to watch. Thanks for asking!

That's very sweet! I'm over-worrying about how my 2yo is going to adjust.

Congratulations to you! Welcome to the world, little Reuben!
