Wow!

Peter Frederick was born on Monday, January 22, at 10:48 am
He weighed 6 pounds and 12 ounces and was 19 inches long

He has a head full of light blonde hair!

His birth was really great -- he was born on the bed after just three pushes. Gee, "just" doesn't quite cover it -- it was hard! :

Labor was longer this time -- a bit of a surprise. It was about 12 hours, and very mild until the last two. And then, well, you know!

I am feeling great, and I can't believe how much I love Peter! He is so precious! And my DS loves him, too. He is so proud to be a big brother (he's three and a half). My milk came in last night, and Daniel (older DS) was so thrilled! He tried a few minutes' worth of taste and then gave up. I guess he really is weaned! How about that?

And here are some pictures from the birth

Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif
