Our son made his appearance at 9:12am on 5/3/08. He weighted in at 9 lb 1 oz and is 21" long.

I woke at 5am with contactions 2min apart lasting 45 seconds each and with bloody show. Called the MW, called the sitter, and woke DH. I was fully dialated when we arrived at the hospital around 7. This babe was not easy to push out. Took about an hour and an episiotomy, pretty hard work. But oh, so worth it.

I feel so blessed and complete. Like my family is perfect and complete.

Ephraim is having some jaundice stuff going on. He needs home light blankets, but I am sure as he nurses more this will pass quickly.

I have been pretty overwhelmed with 3 kids and taking all the help I can get. DH has been home off and on, which has been nice.

Blessings to all you mamas still waiting.

Christi
DS1(12), DD(7)blessed with T21, DS2(2), and DD2 - newly arrived 1/28/11

Congrats to you and your family! I love the name Ephraim. Wow, sounds like you had a really fast labor. Get as much R&R as possible. Happy babymooning.
