He is here! He made his arrival in speedy time. It was such a great low key amazing delivery. The Dr. broke my water around 7:20 and pretty quick after I started to have intense regular contractions. I got my epideral at 9:00 and was happy as can be. At 10:45 I felt that I was ready to push and my amazing Dr. came right in broke down the bed and said we were ready to go. I pushed for 10 minutes about 5 times and out he came! It was so great having Larry by my side, making jokes and chit chatting about Harry Potter. It really was so nice, quick, and easy! I feel so blessed and extremely grateful to have had these great deliveries, it leaves me wanting more and feeling so amazing that my body just created and pushed out another little human.
He is a tiny little guy with brown peach fuzz and long skinny fingers. He seems so little and every time he cries I feel a little anxious because I don't know what he wants or needs yet. Even though I've done this before it feels all new again. He latched on pretty well so hopefully I make some good milk and he is inclined to want to eat, the feedings are always the thing that stresses me the most. I am falling in love already and am so grateful to have a healthy baby. I feel an out pouring of blessings from my heavenly father for giving us this special untimely little gift, I think he knew what I needed more then I did with having this sweet second baby so soon after Max. I love that we are a family of 4 and need to remember that through all the challenges these memories and family relationships are the only things that really matter.
Welcome to the world little Noah! More pictures to come!
