Q. and I have a son!
He was born on Mother’s Day (8 May 2011) at 6.37 pm and weighed in at 7 lb 15 oz. He is gorgeous and perfect in every way and we are both utterly besotted with him. We were home from the hospital three hours after the birth- I had the best possible experience with my midwives and am so so so glad to have been under their care. Labour was straightforward but very intense (to put things in perspective, our midwife first came to our house at 2 pm and I was JUST starting active labour. We went to the hospital at 3, so all told were only there for about six hours.)
I’m still trying to decide what I think about pictures of him online, since I’m not sure I should make that decision for him now that he is out of the womb. But if you would like to see a pic, drop me an email (rescogitataeATgmailDOTcom) and I’ll send you one when I get a spare moment.
We are so lucky. He was worth every minute of the wait.
