the bean is here!

the bean made his debut on july 1, 2010 at 11:49 pm! he weighed 7 lbs 15 oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. he's a golden haired, blue eyed, content (except when he's hungry) little bundle of wonderfulness. the poet and i are just OVER THE MOON right now.

the nursery nurse just came to get him. i was proud to say that yes, in fact, we were able to breast feed this morning with not much difficulty and that he was a champ at it! a champ i say! when we first attempted to breastfeed it was difficult. VERY difficult. i was ready to give up after two feedings and did resort at one time to actually giving him a bottle of formula because i was so tired and frustrated and he was so tired and hungry. but this momma is proud to announce that the last two feedings have been GREAT! we're still learning and i have to have lots of help from The Poet to make sure his neck has good support and his feet and back get stimulated to keep him awake. it is all worth it. so totally worth it!

good day, my readers. i must snag a few zzzzz's before the nurse brings him back!

  1. I've been out of town (camping) wondering how everything went. He is perfect. Congratulations on the birth AND the breast feeding. The first two weeks are the hardest and most painful...hang in there. I loved nursing my boys more than anything else. Enjoy this time!
