nak....still lots of processing, and the house is quiet so i *should* be resting.

 

my sweet baby was born outside in my tub last night, 8-07, at 10:04 into his mama's hands. he was a whooping 10 pounds! he had his cord wrapped tightly around his neck and was born quite floppy. he even needed a few breaths from my midwife, but luckily was still on my chest while all the rousing was going on. his first apgars were a 2.

 

it was a longish labor for me, about 12 hours total, but i attribute all that work to this beefy babe i am now snuggling. he also had not engaged at all previous to labor. i knew this babe was going to be big....and wasn't exactly looking forward to pushing. as it is, the slow descent worked out just right, and i didn't tear at all. i'll be damned but my sciatic nerve hurt worse then the actual pushing!!

 

 

i'll try to type out the long version soon, but had to share with my ladies!

 

 

as it is this little guy is a super nurser.....and already has to fend off his bigger sisters who just want to maul him...ahem....hold him and love him.

 

after a high temp (including a hospital scare) and cranky night, he is feeling much better and his temp has made it back into the normal range.

 

 

welcome, my sweet dear one.

Congratulations Mama, sounds like it was just the birth you and baby Yurei needed.

 

I'll be looking forward to the full story & pics when you can get the time & energy to post it.

Oh those cheeks! SOOOOO cute! I just showed the pic to my DH and he squealed (he wants so badly for our baby to have little chubby cheeks- he thinks baby's with chubby cheeks are the cutest!)

Oh my gosh, those cheeks!  No wonder his sisters want to maul him.  Those must be the most kissable cheeks, ever!  Congratulations, and welcome to the world Yurei!

Oh, the cheeks! I love them! Alexander had really chubby cheeks for his first day and now his whole face is super round, so the cheeks aren't as prominent. I miss them!

Enjoy your precious little man! He's gorgeous!
