Baby Boy is here (and even has a name)!

Yes y'all, William Henry is here!! He is amazingly beautiful and squishy and heavenly. And BIG! Brynn was 8lbs 10oz, so no delicate pixie herself. Guess I know how to grow 'em big. Too big to birth, apparently, because Will Henry was eventually brought into the world via cesarean. It was another long story of hours of pushing, massive swelling, epidural, pitocin, and then decision to have the c/s to keep us both from going into distress. I found out yesterday from the doctor that my uterus *did* actually tear from all of the pushing, but not at my previous scar. I think I know when it labor it actually happened, too, because I had been coping fairly well for hours and then just lost it because the pain was so horrible. I know that we did the right thing by coming to the hospital and being really conservative w/pit - I'm just really really thankful that nothing more serious happened.

Will Henry and I are both fine (although recovering from a c/s is actually harder than I had remembered!) and I should get to go home tomorrow. Brynn is doing well - totally IN LOVE with her baby brother, but understandably distressed that I can't come home yet. Jason has been doing a wonderful job of being the full-time daddy for her the past few days. He's so awesome.

Pics and the brief story are on the blog. Thanks for all of the love and vibes. I
you guys!!!

Welcome, William!


: Sending healing vibes your way during your recovery period. I'm sure big sister is benefiting from this alone time with Daddy. It is a good time to be his focus, and she will only fall more deeply in love with her Daddy!
