Anth Smiles Happily (and Tiredly)

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers!

We are home now, but this is still surreal to me. I'm still realizing that 1) I have a baby, 2) I have kids, and 3) I'm not pregnant anymore. Though Miss E already figured out that last part, as she settled onto my lap this evening. :) When she notices the baby (only about once every half hour), she very gently pats him on the head. Otherwise, she has been running around like a crazy child, desperate for lots of attention from both her parents.

Baby Boy's birth went very well - the quick and dirty details are 10 hours of labor (not counting all the very mild contractions on Thursday evening), born 1 day before his due date. Got an epidural (which worked fabulously - woohoo!), baby born after 25 minutes of pushing. He came out looking not particularly newborn-y due to his large size! I'll try to type up his birth story sometime soon...

But now he is sleeping, so it's off to bed for me, at least for an hour or two. Here are some more pictures of our beautiful baby!
