Yesterday we were able to welcome Baby E to the world! Delivery was SUCH a breeze. it’s so funny how all things are relative – I thought Kensington’s brith was super easy and relatively uneventful, but I was wrong. Everett’s birth was so easy – less than 8 hours and only 7 pushes. total. It was a breeze. It was also pretty funny – the night nurse we had was the EXACT same nurse who delivered Kensington. 1 year apart. And then we had the same recovery room. Weird. The hardest part was we had to wait for my doctor to get out of surgery and I had to hold the baby in – that was the most difficult part. #blessed
(Please ignore my RBF LOL)
He has been perfectly healthy and is nursing REALLY well (Kensington was never able to latch so I can’t event ell you how happy I am that we were able to get him latched on). We knew before he was born that he has hyrdonephrosis (basically an issue with his kidneys) so today he got an ultrasound that they’ll send to his pediatrician and pediatric Urologist for review (meanwhile I’ll hope for the best).
We brought Kensington in yesterday & today so that she could get to know her baby brother a little bit. She is incredibly curious about him, but seems to be confused when actually interacting with him. Like she isn’t sure what to do. But I know she’s going to be a great big sister (when she stops crying out for attention that is).
We are so unbelievably happy to have this healthy boy in our lives (and I’m unbelievably happy to be no longer pregnant although post part recovery still sucks). I’m sure I’ll be sharing a MILLION more pictures over the next few weeks so stay tuned! I wish I could thank every nurse and doctor who was part of this great experience again – we were very lucky.
