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!
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!
