Introducing My Son

Friday morning at 08:06, my son was born:


He weighed 8 pounds, 6 ounces (3800 grams) which is slightly less than our daughter.

Because this was a planned c-section it happened very fast. Our daughter was born from c-section but my wife first tried to deliver the baby naturally for 46 hours. So after 2 days we were exhausted.

This time the baby was born in about 45 minutes. :-). The surgery was still scary though. I’m glad it’s done.

Number Two is drinking milk and pooping a lot, which is a good sign.

Thanks everyone for your well-wishes.
