He’s here!

Meet Leif, born last night.  Here he is with his mom (that’s me!) and big brother.


Induction was quick and easy (A+ would do again!).  Took a while to get started, but once they broke my water, he was out 3 hours later after about 10 minutes of pushing.  He’s a whole pound heavier than S was (8lb, 2.5oz), but seems to be very healthy so far.

We feel so lucky and happy to welcome this new little life to our family.

    Congratulations! It is always such a relief to have them here, safe and sound in our arms. It’s a bonus he is just absolutely adorable. Also what a great book to be reading!

      Thanks! Several of my friends also commented on the reading material — I hadn’t even noticed it was in the picture. I did read a fair amount of it during labor (both during the start of the induction and post-epidural). I recommend it as a labor book. 🙂

    Woo hoo!!!!!!! Congratulations! I’m so happy he is here safely. I hope you are adjusting to life in your newly expanded family. Your sons look perfect together (and you look fabulous as well).

      Thank you!!! So far we are all doing great. S is being an outstanding big brother. L is eating, peeing, pooping… and occasionally sleeping. Just as a baby should. We are very grateful that things have been going so well!
