Just had to brag that my little man arrived yesterday, 3 days early weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs 14oz. Since nobody guessed he would be that big, it was a "natural" birth with as many pain meds as they could pump into me without getting me addicted to something (apparently for about 2 hours he was stuck in a REALLY bad spot, putting pressure on a nerve that he was headbutting right next to my pelvis.. The whole event was kind of fuzzy at that point and for the next 2 hours, but i lived, though the things I said to the anesthesiologist who took 3 tries to get the epidural in weren't very nice - and when even THAT didn't help they topped me off with more drugs.. Apparently I was giggling and bawling at the same time.. it wasn't very pretty..)

On that note i'm going to bed, becasue apparently feeding this guy is going to take most of my time for the next few weeks, because he's RAVENOUS!

We only decided on his name today, which is why i didn't post it yesterday. he is officially Patrick Alexander Auger. I'm getting used to the one handed typing again so typos are rampant. He doesn't like to be put down yet...
