We are happy to announce our precious little man has arrived! Easton was born on January 21st at 10:51 p.m. after a long, 28 hour labor. He was 8 lbs 1.9 oz, 20.75 inches long, and had a 15 inch head!
I’ll be back later this week after we meet up with our doula to share the birth story. I was in a different zone during a lot of the labor, & to make sure I get details right, I want to have her and my husband remind me of details that I might leave out.
In the mean time, I’ll be breastfeeding around the clock, gazing into his gorgeous eyes, smelling his head, kissing his feet, and doing my best to try and sleep 3 hours in a 24 hour period. We’ve definitely been in survival mode a bit around here, and I am still healing from labor (which unfortunately ended in a forceps delivery, but luckily the doctor our midwife called in was very skilled).
Also in the meantime, here are some pictures of this little guy:
Happiness looks like this. Sleep deprivation too 🙂
With Lots of Love,
