8 lbs 3 oz; 21 inches long
Full of black hair just like his big sister was!
Looking back I am grateful for no epidural. I feel great and am recovered a whole lot faster than I was with Launa. I would gladly take one hour of painful pushing than several hours and an epidural.
Big Sister was VERY excited to come to the hospital to meet the baby. Because we didn't know the sex ahead of time she didn't know before she came into the room either. For the entire pregnancy she has been saying she won't accept anything but a baby girl so we did our best to prepare for a boy. When she came in and saw him she said "Mom! She looks like a boy!" And I told her she is a boy and she said "Well can I hold him?" She wasn't upset as we had anticipated since she was set on a sister. She is a great helper and constantly wants to hold him. I'm glad we waited and spaced them apart now as I can only imagine how "helpful" she would be any younger than 3 years old.
