Clearly I still suck at updates! But alas, Pierce Obadiah arrived at 12:26pm on July 17th. He was 9 lbs 6 oz and 21 in. long...now he is just ginormo. Heh, he does not look like the tender 6 weeks that he is. But he is a great joy! It is a bit exhausting with the breast feeding as he wants to eat, especially in the morning, all the time! But he is starting to smile a coo a bit which wipes away any tiredness I am feeling!
The birth went pretty smooth considering it was scheduled and such. At the end of my pregnancy I was incredibly uncomfortable and had no idea why (obviously it was because I was carrying a giant in my belly). But hindsight is 20/20. We went in to start the procedure just before 12, at that point I was given a shot with a needle that was shoved into my back which pretty much made me so numb I did not even know, until everyone started gauking over the shear size of him, that we had started the procedure. Seriously. He is and was beautiful and healthy and had the cutest pre-cry scream I have ever heard.
Silas was a bit afraid of him and the whole situation at first. Really it was because of all the tubes and such hooked up to me. Because as things were removed from me the more comfortable he became. And before we left the hospital he was calling him "my bebe" and giving him kisses. Now Silas still loves his brother but does have his moments of jealousy.
We are all doing great and enjoying our sweet little surprise. He is a blessing and a joy! And is currently preparing to cry out, probably for more food. So that is all I've got!
