There is nothing at all in the world like the feeling of a newborn baby sleeping on your chest...especially when its your own. I'm just cherishing this sweet baby boy. Dawson Graham Colyer entered our lives at 12:31 on Monday. 8lb 4 oz., 20 in. long. Just one ounce less than Bennett and the exact same height. Delivery went well...should have hurried more at home. Contractions were 5 min. apart at 8am, got to hospital at 9:15 and was dilated to an 8. And by the goodness of God, they broke hospital records and my epidural in less than 30 min. later! I was a big wimp and was panicking at the thought of not getting one so I totally lucked out (though I felt way more during pushing than I did with Bennett. Thankfully the pushing only lasted 20 min.)
I've felt a million times better post-partum than I did with Bennett and have enjoyed the whole experience much more this time. (Save for a humiliating allergic reaction to apple juice--think Will Smith in Hitch. Seriously. There are no pictures of me with an ape face, I can assure you.)
Anyway, that's all for now...Dawson's starting to squirm. Feeding time again.
