Born: 7/30/07 at 7:33 a.m. via planned repeat c-section
Weight: 7 lbs 3 oz
Length: 19 1/2"
Eyes: Dark blue
Hair: Dark brown (lots of it!)

I don't have the energy to post a whole birth story, but things are going pretty well, and my recovery has been much easier this time. Corbin has been a great big brother to "baby Simon." Simon is currently at 8 oz. below birth weight and hasn't had any formula, which is a big improvement on last time. My nipples are covered in blood blisters again, but at least he's getting some milk out! The hospital nurses were great (although Corbin mistook them for Darth Vader in their snappy new black scrubs , and one of them remembered helping push Corbin back out of the birth canal during my last c-section. She has 4 kids of her own and gave me some great breastfeeding help too.

Some photos:

Congrats! I hope you recover quickly. Is it just my computer, or does he have a bit of red in his hair?
