I left a comment on your blog- CJ looks so tired in that last photo, but serene and happy! My baby is so tiny, it's so strange to see normal sized babies, they seem so enormous to me. 2lbs heavier than X, that's so awesome! Way to go, mama!

Woohoo!! Congratulations, mama!! So glad you *finally* got your turn! And a quick one, too!

I totally relate to your comment about not doing this again, as sore as you are now! Almost immediately I had the urge to tell DH about the LadyComp I'm planning on getting for NFP/FAM, which is apparently really good for helping ttc OR *avoid!* A few days later (and now nearly 2 weeks later) I'm more open to considering the possibility of another... in a few years... and if I can guarantee a GIRL!

Enjoy your two beautiful girls!!

Great story, great pictures, wow!!!

The first thing I said after my biggest child was born (and I think she's only got that title for another day or two until baby Jackson arrives!) was "wow, that was so much eaiser than last time!". She weighed 2 pounds more and was 2 inches longer than my first child. But she was a home waterbirthed baby. So I totally get how it was easier even though she's a big girl!

Thanks for the encouragement on birthing my big overdue boy!
