5 Days Old

Now I have a real excuse for not blogging. 5 days ago, someone very special decided to make his grand entrance. And grand it was!

My water broke at Babies R Us on September 8th, at 38 weeks into my pregnancy. I drove myself to the hospital. I wasn't feeling anything but kinda gross. Water breaking is not pleasant. I went from feeling nothing to major contractions in minutes, but hours after the water breaking. I almost gave birth sans epidural. Not by choice, but because it took that long to get one. I was asking for one an hour before I got it. Almost right after I got it, I was ready to push. My doctor decided she had time to go get a tea from downstairs. The nurse had me reach down and deliever my own baby in the doctor's absence.

Mr Jasper Daniel was born at 8:23pm on the 8th. He was 7lbs, 12oz and 21" long. He's amost a pound smaller than his big brother.

Jasper is the complete opposit of his big brother. Monkey didn't want to come out; after being induced, I still ended up with a c-section. Jasper, was all too happy to come out and came out fast. Monkey was up all night and slept all day. Jasper, lets me sleep a little at night. Monkey cried loudly and a lot. Jasper makes little kitten-like sounds and only cries when he has a gas bubble or wants to cuddle.
Big brother Monkey has taken to the baby really well. I couldn't have asked for more, We're very happy right now.
Until next time, when I'll hopefully have the announcements done so I can share.
