At Last!

Finally, Blogger is responding and letting me create a new post!

And, finally, we have some good news!

I think most people may know already through other means, but we had our baby yesterday!  John Harold made his appearance after 43 hours of steady contractions and about 3 hours of active labor.  I think I pushed for about 20 minutes.  He weighs 9lbs, 13oz, and the doctors told me he had a rather big head (ouch).  It was a very tiring weekend, but surprisingly, I really feel great.  I am sore and need my rest, of course, but this is the best I've felt after a birth yet!

His big sisters are so excited about their little brother and spent a lot of time this morning hovering around him in his baby rocker, rocking him and singing to him any time he would start to wake up.  They are such sweet little Mommies.  They keep bringing him toys, too.  Maggie was careful to pick out one of her few prince (as opposed to princess) dolls for him since he is a boy.

Andrew is taking time off for a few days to be with us and his son.  (His family name will live on!)  He's also planning to take the girls to the Children's Museum one of these days to give them a special day out with Daddy.

Here's our little (well, not that little) boy!

  10. What a beautiful baby, Patty! I know you're very proud. That's the best kind of labor - a long wind-up and a fast pitch!
