HELLO EVERYONE!<br><br>
I am finally getting around to announcing our new baby boy! He is healthy, strong, and a voracious eater. I had him on September 18th via scheduled C section. He weighed in at 9 pounds 12 ounces and was 21 3/4" long! Although I had a C section, I comprised a short "birth" plan or rather a list of wishes and my OB was great at accomodating everything. I was able to watch him come out of me and it was a beautiful thing. He was brought right to me and I held him until they finished sewing me up. Within 15 minutes he was brought to me in recovery and with my husbands help I was able to have the skin to skin contact I wasn't able to experience for days when my first son was born. Breastfeeding is going great and other than the sleep deprivation, all is well and I am on my way to recovering. Big Brother LOVES his new baby brother and so far he has not shown any signs of jealously. We are actively trying to include him in most everything and that has helped.<br>
Just wanted to update you all and say congratulations to all the mamas who have birthed since I've been off the boards.<br><br>
Talk to you all soon in the "Life with a Babe" discussions (finally! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
