A Picture!

Here's Gregory, looking quite alert. This was taken only a few hours after he was born.

By the way, I should have mentioned that he was 8 lbs, 2 oz, and 21 inches long. I just can't get over how long he is - a full 4 inches longer than his sister was at birth!

We're still all doing really well, and it is so nice to be home and not stuck in the hospital!!


  • Congratulations! You almost make labor sound pleasant! And Gregory is a cutie. I hope you have a peaceful recovery and get lots of sleep. I hope my homebirth is as idyllic and uneventful as yours...

  • Awwww so cute!!!!!!

    Our friend just had her baby, several weeks over due and over 10 pounds. They had to give her a C-section.... That baby refused to come out.

  • Thanks!

    You know, labor really was pleasant - certainly it was work, but it was good, fulfilling work and I think that makes all the difference. Sure, I certainly wouldn't want to do it every day, but really it was an amazing experience. I'm actually finding the whole immediate post-partum period to be more of a trial than the birth was... those afterbirth pains while nursing are no fun at all!!

  • Yay! He's adorable! We're all excited for you... and we're hoping to meet him sometime soon! Congratulations!
