Well, after a long and rather nasty labor, Oliver Ray was born on May 5th, at 1:51 a.m. My brother Michael called it at LONG time ago, he said the Baby O would be a Cinco De Mayo baby, and it happened. At least it’s an easy date to remember.
I’ll have to post about the labor next, because it is a LONG and yucky story, but we are all doing well and are so happy and blessed to add such a sweet baby into our home.
There were some GREAT people there to help me during my labor:
Ok, well, Papa wasn’t THERE while I was having the baby (it was a very scary “Placenta meets Papa” episode last time), but I couldn’t post anything without saying a very, very, huge and GINORMOUS “Thank you” to my dad and my brother for watching Mr. B while I was waiting to get induced AND while I was in labor. And then my parents watched Mr. B for the week until we got to come home, so there’s more gratitude there.
All in all, things went well and we are home, so that means more pictures soon and more updates…I hope.
