9lbs 7oz, 22in
Jack was born 17 days ahead of his due date because of pre-eclampsia. I went through 22 hours of labor but honestly the epidural made all the difference - no pain, I was just tired. Because we didn't have any progress in the last two hours, the best thing for both of us was a c-section. Everything went well with the surgery. Dad stayed behind the curtain with me (I don't blame him. Gross!). We spent 5 days in the hospital and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was amazing but I was anxious to get home.
We've finally settled in with a little help from my sister. She came down from
My parents will be coming down in a couple weeks. Can't wait to see them and they are anxious to meet their second grandchild. They're bringing a car/walker thing that my 15mo old nephew has grown out of. It's a little advanced for Jack right now but he'll be ready for it soon enough. Mom asked what kind of projects I had for them to help with when they're down here. Usually they help landscape, fix things around the house, etc. but DH is really good at that stuff so I don't really have any projects. Soooo I think I'll ask Mom to help me finish my Surface Woven Tote :) (my Ravelry link) Maybe some other UFOs or start up some Baby Surprise Jackets. I found The Opinionated Knitter at her favorite yarn store, Main Street Yarns, when I was visiting just a few weeks before Jack was born.
