simon otto is here! 

9 pounds 2 ounces, 20.5 inches

11:44 am on tuesday, december 6th


simon was born via planned/scheduled c-section, due to my complicated delivery history.  and, although, major surgery isn’t an ideal way to give birth, i’m so thankful it allows my babes and me to stay safe and healthy.


because he had some trouble stabilizing his blood sugars (i’m type 1 diabetic) immediately following birth, simon unfortunately spent the last couple of days in the nicu.  if everything goes as it’s supposed to now, he’ll be discharged to my room in the next hour or so.  fingers crossed!


whew, it’s been a crazy couple of days, and i’m very ready for life to normalize now.  hopefully, on to our babymoon...!
