My brain hasn’t had enough sleep to post the birth story yet. So here are the stats:
I had my second child – another boy – last Friday night at 10:19 pm.
He was another 8 pounder (8 lb 7 oz). Thank goodness I was induced – I came out with no tears!!! I’m not sure I would have been so lucky with a Niner. Because of the thick layer of vernix (waxy coating to keep baby warm in utero) my mom says baby came too early…well, I for one am glad to have him out!
He was 21 3/4 inches long.
He had his second bath today and I can tell you that he has copper colored hair and looks more like his cousin Evelyn than he does to his brother…but, he’s only 5 days old.
I have some really lovely photos that Danny took – but again – going through those and composing a story will take more thought than I can muster right now.
One day at a time.
I’m so happy to have a new little monkey to cuddle.
