Pea and I have a son! He came squalling into this world at 11:17 pm on Sunday January 1st, weighing a hearty 8 lbs 5 oz, and 20 inches long. We’re calling him Gus, but he’ll stay Spud on this blog for the time being. Plus Pea and I keep calling him Spud accidentally.
We’re doing ok. We stayed overnight at the hospital and then requested to be discharged the next afternoon. Spud had already gotten us both besotted with him, so we figured since we were keeping him, we might as well take him home!
I am very sore, and both physically and mentally tired. A labour story will follow, but it really did go pretty well. Certainly not something I will sign up for again soon, but nothing traumatizing.
