made from love!
So the words are wrong, but the feeling the same! He is lovely! We are in love with him!
BPP made his way into this world by a last minute c-section (not as bad as I thought!). Thursday Sept 3, 2009 at 2:42pm. He was 7lbs 12oz and 20 3/4" long. With a head of really dark hair!! Q has adjusted to being a big brother like you wouldn't believe!!
We had no idea what to expect. How could you?! We didn't know if he would be excited or like him or what. Q is very sensitive and isnt' afraid to show how he is feeling. We knew he would be sweet and gentle but we had no idea how nurturing he would be! It's incredible! He wants to hold him and love him and hug him and kiss him and stroke his head all the time. It's the first thing he wants in the morning and the last thing at night. It's the first thing he wants when he gets home from day care. I can honestly say (today) that he is THRILLED with being a big brother! And I can tell you that we are THRILLED as well! No adjustment needed! Shew!
That "last minute" c section was because B couldn't decide if he wanted to be head down or breech. He kept flip flopping! What we did know was that at 39 weeks and breech again, I COULD NOT go into labor for fear of things being delivered before B! YIKES! So we made the decision to go ahead with a c-section. Wednesday consisted of wrapping up Thursday morning (39 weeks and 2 days) we went to the hospital. CP and I checked in and got set up with IV's etc. When the Dr came to check B & I out (about an hour before surgery) we found out he was HEAD DOWN!!! But knowing what we knew about B's acrobatic skills we decided it was time for him to make his arrival and everyone would be safe!
Q has started a new daycare and is adjusting well to that as well!! YEAH!! He is telling us more about his day, which is a really nice change! It is nice to have the days with B to bond and nap (and try to accomplish some of the things on that maternity time to-do list)! He says lots of funny new things and notices things and talks about them!
We are enjoying our days as parents of 2 and I am enjoying my new days as the mom of 1 more y chromosome!
