Hi Mama's,

William Kenneth was born at 3:14am on 1-1-05. Labor lasted 9 hours and my water broke spontaneously at 4pm the day before. Stats are 7lbs 3 oz, 19.5 inches long. Nursing is going pretty well. No tearing or stitches required.

nicole and Will (31 hours old)

For all the wonderful wishes. Turns out the nursing marathon in the hospital overnight (Jan 1st to 2nd) was bringing in my milk, which has come in full force. As my DH likes to joke (quote from some Wierd Al movie) "Will gets to drink from the firehose! He is so different from DD. She did the nursing marathon thing the first night home. Last night, we went to bed at 8:30, expecting to be up again and again all night. I woke up about 11:30 and we had to wake the babe to nurse, then again around 2:00. Primarily becuase I knew that he needed to eat and my breasts were starting to hurt! Then he finally woke us up around 5:30, so all-in-all, not a bad first night. He is a squeaker, though when he sleeps, unless he is cuddled up with me. We didn't co-sleep with DD, primarily because we all slept better in seperate rooms, she is a flailer and kicker and hitter in her sleep, but with him, it is working. He is sleeping alot during the day too, but if the nights continue like this, I have no problem with that. I will have the birth story up soon, although, since it was so short, there is not a whole lot to tell!

Hope to hear about more babies coming!

Nicole
