That's what Morgan announced to me as the doctor held up my son (!). I became so excited that the anesthesiologist leaned over and explained he was giving me something to slow me down a bit, as my heart rate was a little too fast for his liking. Ha! He was 7 lbs, 8 oz, and has already regained his birth weight, hurrah! This explains why I am starving all of the time- love the all you can eat aspect of nursing.
Much everything else with this pregnancy, things are much easier the second time around. Like all my friends told me, the toddler is the tough part and the newborn is a breeze. An exhausting breeze, but a blessedly quiet one. Miss Priss is very intrigued with "Baby Deeds", when she stops playing long enough to remember his existence. She did want to go see him and have him play with her first thing this morning (at 6:15, grrr). I can tell she is still a little stressed from snow week cabin fever, followed by four nights at her grandparents, lack of mama time, and a new baby. I'm praying for God to give me patience, kindness and grace for my barely two year old darling girl around the clock. Once my c-section has healed more, and I can do my normal daily activities, I think her stress will recede.
So, I will be back with more pictures of my little guy soon- I am just over the moon! Time to do a little napping and cuddling while big sister is in school.
Oh, and any toddler tips (especially those relating to the toddler wanting to be carried) after c-section are greatly appreciated!
(Excuse any egregious errors and/or typos, I am still on pain relievers and about 3 hours sleep)
