Happy Birthday Daryoosh!
Well, It’s official. Yago is a big brother. I’ll have to think about a new title for the blog soon, won’t I?
We headed for the hospital at around 5:25. Yes, we were supposed to arrive at 5:30. Oops. We walked into the hospital at 5:35. Only five minutes late! Good thing we live so close!
By 6:00 or so I was settled into my room. Things moved pretty quickly from there. By 9:30 or so I got the epidural. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work completely. Oh well. So much for modern medicine, right? It wouldn’t have been so bad if I hadn’t expected painless late labor contractions just like with Yago. I think my exact words were, “This baby’s officially grounded until the age of 12!”
By 11:00 the doctor was called, around 11:20 the action began and by 11:24 we heard the baby’s first cry. Craziness.
The baby has been easy so far. We’ll see how Santi and I handle two kids!
Here are the new baby’s first photos!
Thanks to everyone for visits, emails, well wishes! It’s great to have such support!
