My little bundle o' joy:<br><br>
Name- Ezra James<br>
Due Date- 11/25<br>
Birthday- 11/18<br>
Sex- male<br>
ht/wt- 20.5" and 7 lb 9 oz<br>

How we're doing now- Great <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He is a good nurser (thankfully! I was so worried) and just pleasant as can be. My worst problem has been awful engorgement, which today finally seems to be lessening slightly. I am just so in love with him <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

1. Baby's name - Gabriel Evan Powell<br>
2. Baby due date - 10/23/05<br>
3. Baby's birthday - 11/15/05<br>
4. Sex and weight/height - male, 8lbs 12oz, 21 1/2 inches<br>
5. How long you were in labor - 3 hours but the majority of the labor was in the last hour and 15 or 45 minutes... VERY INTENSE!!!<br>
6. How are you doing? - I'm in absolute baby bliss land. Emotionally I feel so much more centered and grounded after this birth than I did with my first. I didn't tear at all, only had a minor labial split which healed very quickly. Gabriel latched on after 5 minutes of being born and has been nursing like a champ ever since. My size F cup breasts need to be pumped twice a day to prevent engorgement... at 10 days postpartum we have no more room in our freezer for expressed milk!!! Gabriel is sleeping pretty much through the night (for a newborn) only waking twice to feed and be changed. I'm so in love with him and our new family dynamic. Alright... I'll stop writing my novel <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
