Max arrived safe and sound Friday night. Active labor was less than 3 hours, spectacularly un-mucked with birth other than the AROM. He nursed 45 of his first 60 minutes on the outside and pretty much hasn't stopped since. I lost a little too much blood and am anemic but my bottom and rest of me fared very well.

He was 7-7 and 18 1/2 ".
Full birth story to follow.

Max! Congratulations, mama! He is so very beautiful!

Oh my -- the chin cleft! I love it. So Cary Grant. Congrats on a smooth birth and HURRAY for worry-free breastfeeding. That is always a huge plus in my book.

He is ALL cheeks and chin. Skinny chicken legs etc.....but those chubby, super kissable cheeks. He is also so short (for one of mine) he was only 18 1/2 inches. My next shortest was 19 7/8 and weighed just a bit less. Most of them are 21 inches give or take at the same weight he was.

Another pic the whole crew (minus my two big boys who are away at camp)
