I’m A Mommy (cliff notes version)

I’m a mommy!  I know I suck at updating my blog but I honestly have not had a chance to jump on here since he was born.  He’s sleeping now so before he wakes and wants the boob here is the very quick, cliff notes version of how he came into the world.  I promise to give you all the gory details as soon as I have a chance.

Jackson Xavier was born at 1:37 am on July 30, 2014.  He weighed 9 lbs, 13 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long.  He finally came to us after being induced with Pitocin, 2 days of labor (half the time with no epidural), 3 hours of pushing (with a worn off epidural at the end) and then finally having a C-section because he was too big for me to push out.   

From day 1 he has been super alert (he looked right at Mike when he came out) and has been able to lift his head and look around.  He is also able to roll on his side and hates being swaddled or put on his back.  For the most part he is a very good baby who only cries when he needs a diaper change or is hungry.  There have been some episode where he has cried for hours but that has only happened 2 or 3 times so far.

We are totally 1,000% head over heels in love with this little monkey.
