Finally... an update from me

My baby BOY arrived yesterday at 2:14pm. His name is Linus Kenneth Neil and he was 7lbs 13oz, 19 3/4" long (a peanut... his big brother was a pound bigger and an inch and a half longer at birth). He is totally perfect.

The birth went absolutely nothing as planned, but we are both home and doing fairly well (him perfect, me... still in rough shape from a massive postpartum hemmorage).

Thank you for all of the good wishes. I will post a birth story and pictures when I can

Alison
Mama to Toad (08/06), Frog (01/09)... and new baby Newt born on his due date, Sep. 8, 2010

Aw, congrats! Sorry about the hemorrhage -- my sister bled out pretty bad after a c-section and she was in rough shape. Get lots of rest and recovery time!

Man, there are quite a few Canadians in our DDC!
