Mason Alexander arrived at 7:44 this morning. He had the cord wrapped around his neck twice, but is fine and just a bit wheezy now. He weighed in smaller than we expected, only 8lbs 4oz (20" long), but he looks even smaller than that. Maybe because it's been awhile since I've had a newborn.
I'm biased, but I think he is absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way :)
I'm doing great, already up and out of bed once, catheter removed, and ate lunch. Hubby just left to go pick up the other kids to meet their new baby brother.
I edited to add this pic of me leaving the house this morning at 4am because I realized how scary the next pic of me is,lol! I look a lot better standing up ;)
Here I am, in all my enormous pregnant glory waiting for the csection at around 6 this morning.
And here he is after we all got back to the room, about 2 hours old.
I couldn't be any happier. Happy that the pregnant pains are over, happy that the csection is behind, and mostly happy that our sweet baby boy is safe and sound in my arms right now. Thank you all for the prayers. The last 2+ years has been a hard journey, but I'm more than blessed in the end.
