Baby Kai is Here!

We had our baby, Kai Logan, Wednesday May 27th at 5:54pm at Wright-Patterson AFB hospital.

My water broke on its own (on the couch- the cat was confused) and we got admitted before 6am. I had a wonderful midwife who fully supported our wishes to deliver without pain medication. At about 3:00pm the contractions stopped so we started Pitocin. NOT pleasant, but we somehow managed to push that baby out without intervention- SO awesome!

(We've played Boggle during my last 3 deliveries... we had fun arranging the letters on this one)

He was 8lb 13oz (a full pound bigger than my next biggest baby), 20.5 inches long... and beautiful.

Recovery has been pretty good. He's a fantastic nurser... maybe a little too great- he eats every 2 hours :P

We feel so blessed- he's just perfect and his siblings love him- especially Leora, which was a surprise since she's pretty clingy. Of course, Kai won the others over when he "gave" them each a little gift when they first met him. We've done that with each baby :)

It's amazing how with each baby our family feels complete all over again. I remember being worried about how I could possibly love 2 kids as much as 1. The moment I held my Charla, it was as if my heart expanded exponentially and I could hardly stand the overwhelming burst of love I felt. It's been like that with each new baby. There is nothing in the world that compares to having a family.

Here's a link to more pictures of our precious baby- enjoy!
