He's Here!

He's here!  Ian Lee was born Tuesday, August 5th at 6:01pm!

I was supposed to go in to start induction at 8pm Tuesday but the little guy decided to get things going on his own.  I woke up feeling funny every hour on the hour from 11-3 an finally at 3 I thought, this is kind of painful now.  Woke Jon up and then went to ask my mom what contractions felt like lol!

We got ready and headed in not a minute too soon because I was pretty uncomfortable by the time we got to the hospital at 4:30.  I'll share more of the labor story later but we kind of had a perfect storm of minor complications that all added up to a c-section being the best option although I'd like to avoid it.  But all that mattered was getting him here safe and I knew I had a higher chance of it due to having an oval shaped pelvis instead of round.  And the "little" guy ended up being 8 pounds even, ha!  20.5 inches long.  And honestly, even though I'd rather avoided it, recovery hasn't been anything as bad as I expected.  I felt not too bad the first day and immensely better every day!

Anyway, just wanted to let my friends, readers, and customers know I may be on a bit of a hiatus, we'll see.  The little guy has us back in the hospital after only one night at home.  Saturday he looked a little lethargic and hadn't had many diapers so we took him in and were admitted as his temp was on the low end of normal and he was down to just over 7 pounds.  Since, then my milk has come in and he is feeding like a champ and gets extra bottles and is back to 8 or a little over 8 this morning and doing much better and more of his spunky self.  Just waiting on all the labs to come back which takes 48 hours or so.  We hope to go home tomorrow but everything is looking up and he even let mom and dad sleep pretty good last night!  ;-)

I'll leave you with some pictures and I hope to be back to a little stamping and blogging as good stress relief soon!  Oh, and I got my holiday mini goodies.  They are so lonely at home with granny ;-)




Happy stamping (stamp some for me!)
