And Baby Makes 4!


Well sorry I have been gone so long (ok just a week) but I kinda sorta really had my baby boy!! He was born July 27, 9 days early. Today's my actual due date and I am so glad I'm not pregnant anymore...

All I can say is I had a MUCH easier labor than last time. He was born like 2 hours after we got to the hospital. I pushed for less than 20 minutes. MUCH better than the three and a half hours of pushing last time. He is also much smaller than Hunter. Hunter was 9 lbs 8 oz this little man was 7 lbs 3 oz 20.5 in long.

 

One week old!

So far I am a lucky mama! I am getting at least 4 hours of sleep at night before he wakes up to nurse (usually I have to wake him) (knock on wood), and he is breast feeding like a champ. He is also very calm. Big brother is doing great as well. He is adjusting and really loves giving his baby bro kisses. It is so freakin adorable. He is a little freaked out by the breast feeding thing though. But he won't remember this I guess haha!

This week I am getting back on the healthy train and eating 5 to 6 smaller protein filled meals a day. Were also going to get out and take walks as a family. I haven't weighed myself since having him. I'm scared. I am going to post some before pictures this week. EEK! I'm freaked!

  15. Congratulations! He's so stinking cute!!! Glad to hear Hunter is adjusting well. He'll get over the breast feeding thing.

    Glad to hear labor was so much easier this time. My experience was the same way with my second. A lot less labor and a heck of a lot less pushing!
