So, I had a baby!
Isaac Ross joined our family on Thursday March 10th.
I had a 42 hour labor with Elliott — pushed for nearly 4 and a half hours — and it took me weeks to recover. When I went in on Wednesday night, I was pretty certain that history was repeating itself. I am thankful it did not — from start to finish I labored for about eleven hours. And I only pushed for 13 minutes. Yeah. I know. I wasn’t expecting that either. (It still might take me weeks to recover; but somehow all these postpartum healing pains are worth it when you’ve got an awesome little baby to hold.)
Isaac weighed 7lbs and 1oz at birth. 20 inches long. And he’s pretty great.
But I haven’t picked up a book since then. I did take my Kindle to the hospital in an act of optimism, but yeah…there wasn’t any time to read.
I’ll check in as I can.
