G joined us at 8:50 a.m. today. He weighed 7 pounds, 8 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. Susan is doing fine, and just dying to sleep. Everything went well, and her pain was managed OK, according to her. I of course have no way of knowing.
Everyone said it was the most amazing thing that could ever happen to a person. Now I know what they all meant. Recently, I read somewhere that when you look at your baby for the first time, you suddenly realize how much your own parents love you. It’s totally true!
And, anyone wondering how Simon is adjusting can see he doesn’t mind sleeping under G’s hospital blanket!
