“CJ” finally made his way into the world on September 8th . . . a week and half past his due date and two days before his big sister’s birthday. A healthy 8 pounds, 13 ounces and 22 inches. And no epidural. Yup, you heard that right . . . I had an almost 9 pound baby with no pain meds at all. I am woman, hear me roar.
Mind you, this was not by choice. We barely made it to the hospital in time — we quite literally got checked into a room and he was born seven minutes later. It was slightly crazy. I guess once he finally made up his mind to join us, he didn’t waste any time!
The downside is that I had planned on having my sister in the delivery room with me taking pictures like during my first delivery. Needless to say, she didn’t make it to the hospital in time. But once she got there, she started snapping away. So here are some shots she got.
And here are some I’ve taken since we’ve been home.
With big sister, Molly.
how cute are these dimples?
