Week 40 Update: Baby!

Hey there.  In spite of this whole pregnancy thing being a total fluke, homeboy was determined to make his appearance as scheduled.  I was originally due the 21st, then moved to 3/24, then 3/28, then at my last sonogram on February 25, they moved me back to 3/21.  Lo and behold if I didn't go into labor on Sunday night and there he was by Monday evening, right on time.  I take this to mean he'll be exceptional (since only what, 5% of kiddos are born on their due dates) from here on out.  When I've got a bit more time, I'll recount labor and delivery - mostly for me, so I don't forget.  It was something else.  Not that I had anything to compare it to.  In the meantime, prepare for an onslaught of pics of my bambino!

6 pounds, 12 ounces
20 inches long 

Ignore our weirdo faces, my doc had literally just thrown a baby at me.  Thankfully, the nurse (who was so awesome!) was totally with it and started snapping away while we're were making goofy mugs.

So new!  I can't believe he crossed the one week mark yesterday.  Sniffle.

K and H chillin' like villains.  No, they're not villainous at all.  

Stretching out before checking out of the hospital.  Seriously, they just let you leave.  Once I'd signed the forms, they could've cared less what we did with this kid.  They didn't even make me leave in a wheelchair!

At home, hanging out with his best Boppy friend.

Morning snuggle time.  With mittens.  This kid is doing everything he can to poke out his own eyes.  What's up with that?

So, yes, more later.  I'm running on empty (they forget to mention that you, the mama, will feel like total poo (and not go poo) for sometime after birth, but no one cares, especially your kid) with about four hours of sleep under my belt out of the last 48.  When we've better adjusted to our new normal, I hope to be back around here, but if you call me a mommyblogger, I will cut you.  Just saying.  I'm simply continuing to record and reveal fascinating snippets of my life and musings, they just now happen to include a baby.
