Well, he’s already 11 days old, but I’ve been busy spending all my time with him!
I didn’t even finish comparing my pregnancies before it was time to compare kids! I had him at 39 weeks and 1 day…very different from 41 weeks and 1 day with my daughter. And when he decided to join us, he was here fast and fierce!
I had some contractions on Wednesday, the 24th, but nothing too notable. Even at 2am Thursday, contractions were 7 minutes apart.
He was born in less than 2.5 hours!
So now we get to enjoy this little dude, and figure him out. Compared to our daughter, who screamed the first 8 weeks of life, was never really a newborn, and didn’t sleep (would have cut into her screaming!), this guy is pretty calm and content. We expect that this means he’ll be a challenge as he gets moving!
Some pictures from these first few days…
