a quick note without capitals (mostly)

h was born on thursday with no major complications (apart from me stopping being able to breathe easily!) last week. he was 3.76 kg or 8.3 pounds, has hair, and was a brilliant beetroot colour. completely different from the navy blue colour of c when he was born. looked a lot like my grandad at first, as he was a little overcooked and was like a little old man. he is a pretty laid back baby most of the day but becomes a nasty fiend at 2 in the morning.

i'm off to bed to prepare for the next round of 2 in the morning. my boobs are really REALLY sore and tight but once this goes down which should in theory be tomorrow i will be well on the way to having floor access, and feeling much more comfortable. all the stomach exercises i did while pregnant have worked pretty well and the tummy is retreating to its usual place more quickly than last time.

be warned, there may be a post describing the rather incredible journey of the past week coming up, and then again we may just proceed onwards without doing the backstorey. Heh!

Yay yay and ditto! Mazeltov and felicitations! Hope the post-birth process goes ok, and small progeny changes colour soonish.
