I did it!!!

Yep, as most of you have figured out by now, we have a new baby! :) After I posted here the other day, the contractions went to about 3 minutes apart so I woke up the family and we headed to the hospital. We checked in at 6 am and our baby BOY was born at 10:49 am. I was just amazed at how easy and fast the labor went! I went drug-free, just as I'd hoped to do, only using self-hypnosis to manage the pain. He was 7 lbs. 9 oz.

So last night was our first night home and didn't go well, but that's to be expected I suppose. He doesn't think he needs to sleep when it gets dark out, and would rather play or scream all night instead. He's getting the hang of nursing, which is good. Meanwhile, I'm recovering fairly well although still VERY sore. My hubby has been a HUUUUGE help in taking care of the bigger kids.

I'm off to nap now. I've set the timer for 10 minutes to play on the computer, but I better sleep now before the baby needs me again. Thank you all for the phone calls, cards, and gifts!! You know how to make someone feel very loved. :)
