7 lbs. 3 oz.
20 and a quarter inches
Obviously not my first kid if I'm just posting my first picture over two weeks after his arrival. I am starting to get subtle stink-eye messages from the numerous amounts of grandparents and aunts and uncles wanting to see pictures so I guess it's time. lol.
Not much to the "story". Routine C-section. My fourth. Had to have them all that way after all the complications with my first baby. So delivery for me is boring and all that. Pretty much the only thing I can really say is that with both my babies born here in Arizona they had the radio on during the operation so both Matthew and Daniel were born to specific songs that we have dubbed as their personal theme songs. For Matthew is was Katy Perry's California Girls. We still get a good chuckle out of that and wondered if Daniel would get a better song. Well, little baby D was born to Lionel Richie and Diana Ross's "Endless Love". HAHAHAHA! For the record, I do plan to mention this to all of the girls they bring home as teenagers. In fact, I'll probably tell their dates about their theme songs while showing them this picture...
Yes, I'm cruel. But come on, this is a good one. I took it to show the size difference. You forget just how tiny the new little ones are. Suddenly my cute little Matthew is a BRUTE. And, the difference between 7 pounds and 25 pounds is A LOT. Crazy how fast they grow.
Anyhoo, baby D is here and both he and I are happy and healthy. He's a fantastic nurser which is a relief, and an okay sleeper. (If I could just get him off that newborn nocturnal schedule we'd be doing great.) I'm finally back on my feet and I believe some of my brain cells are even starting to come back. Hallelujah!
And the best part? I'M NOT PREGNANT ANYMORE!!!!! Or ever again for that matter. This baby factory is officially closed! There is not a dance in the world happy enough to express how thrilled I am about that. Now to lose the baby weight for the last time!
