    New addition to my family too!
    I got a little surprise on February 23. I went to a regular OB appointment, and was told to head in to have my baby by C-section immediately. I had low amniotic fluid, the baby was small and he was breech, so they wanted him out for his protection. I wasn't due until March 17, so let's just say I was caught completely off guard.



    I've had so much work to catch up on since he was born. Didn't quite have things ready for me to be gone at that point, but what can I say? It's worth it! He's so little - 5 lb 9 oz at birth, but up to 6 lb already. I think I'm finally out of the daze I went into on the 23rd.

    Congratulations Steph!

    Your baby looks healthy and rosy, too. I love the color coordinated cap and teddy!

    Gosh, he weighed more than I did at birth and I was two weeks late! I wonder how much he'd have weighed if he'd made it to nine months.

    Hope you're taking time off to watch him sleep and smile and smile and smile!

    Hiya baby!

    Congratuations Steph. Your baby is SO adorable. It must be so surreal to hold him in your arms and realize that at this point he's still supposed to be inside you...wow!

    Enjoy every minute with your new bundle of joy!!!

    Thanks. He seems small to me... then again, his older sister was 8 lb 9 oz at birth. We have big babies in my family. I'm having a blast with him and making sure I don't feel too guilty about spending extra time off the computer.

    He's beautifu!!!

    He'll get big. Both my little ones seemed so small at first 6.5 lbs. ea. but now they are sprountin' and in the upper percentile for their height.

    I was very worried about my son they kept telling me I had borderline low fluid and he wasn't as big as they thought he should be. Got me all twisted up the last few weeks...but everything was just FINE.


    Congradulations!! Enjoy--newborns are so precious.
