Mom to Eddie 1/07 and Nicholas 6/08. Eddie allergic and refluxer now on cow's milk!!!! Nicholas also a refluxer on prevacid and breast milk. Mom on elimination diet AGAIN!!
It's A BOY!!! Nicholas is here
Hi all I had the baby on Tuesday June 24th at 512pm, vaginally and get ready for this 10 lbs 2 oz, 20.5 inches!!! The epidural worked like a charm and it was an easy delivery I pushed for less than 30 minutes, the doctor could not believe he was so big he was really freaked out and said I really should have had a c-section but it all worked out, I am a bit sore, but I really think I was more sore with Eddie, whose delivery was a nightmare. I really got to enjoy every moment I was so happy. I will post pics soon, Eddie really hasn't spent too much time with him since we got home today around 6 and he went down around 645. He is nursing well and so far seems to be a very different baby than Eddie, he takes his time nursing and is a lot more "chill" I miss you all and thanks for all of the warm wishes and prayers I know they were with me!! :O)Elaine

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!! OMG - you had a 10-pound baby. Certain parts of my anatomy hurt just thinking that. I would have jsut said forget it, this child is staying in there forever because there is NO WAY. My sister actually had a baby this week, too. What a great week!! I hope you are blessed wtih an easy baby this time around...Lord knows you deserve it
