A new life begins!

Saturday, April 2nd, 2005

I thought I should have a spot to rant specifically on poopy diapers and breastfeeding, so if this is what you want listen to, stay tuned!

Right now he’s really cranky, so I should probably do the right thing and check on my son…

Our new addition

Introducing!
Jack Martin Kyle
born at Strong Hospital on March 30, 2005 at 4:01 PM
8 1/2 pounds 22 inches

for those who want the nitty gritty…
contractions started at about 3:30 AM (yee gods!)
received some pitocen at some point (things are really hazy around here)
started pushing at around 3:00 PM (so no epidural for me)
lots of pain around this point and my mind leaves my body
baby arrives at 4:01 PM
Happy new family (yes I can still smile)

We are now at home and right at this very moment Jack is resting comfortably in my lap. Everyone is doing well, however I am extremely exhausted (suprise suprise).
Last night I don’t think anyone got much sleep. Gifts of food, a lap for Jack to rest in and hands to change diapers will be greatly welcomed. Otherwise I look forward to showing him off to all of you in the future!

Time to feed my little man now!
Love
Cathy
