Our biggest and shortest baby is simply magical.

I went into labor at home and came to the hospital around 2 am instead of my 7 am induction. I still needed Pitocin and my OB broke my water since my contractions kept spacing apart.

It was my most favorite birth and I can't wait to write up his birth story. He came out very angry and loud about having to evict the womb. He nursed a ton and now is very sleepy after such a big birthday.

Today was incredible. I haven't slept a wink since Thursday morning but can't wait to fall asleep with this guy in my room. Big brother and big sister met him and love him. All four grandparents met him and love him. Nate and I are just head over heels.
