Anthony is here!
My fluid levels were low so they decided to take him out early. It was a great experience as far as surgeries go, I had an excellent anesthesiologist, great surgeon and the nurses at the hospital were wonderful. As much as I have complained about having that insurance company , my experience at that hospital was wonderful. Although the other hospital had way better food. LMAO
Anyway Anthony weighed in at 7 lbs 13 ounces and 20 inches long. He looks just like Amelia. Everyone in the operating room commented on his hair when he came out. :-)
He is healthy, didn't lose any weight in the hospital, and is eating like a champ. He eats, sleeps and poops. It's great! I am still tired and sore, but doing pretty well all in all. We are already getting one 4 or 5 hour stretch of sleeping at night. Go baby go! :-)
Amelia is in love with her little brother and is doing a great job of leaving him alone so far. She gets her stool and stands on it next to the bassinet so she can see what he's doing, but she's pretty good at not touching unless we say it's okay.
I'm crossing my fingers that he stays such an easy baby. I was worried that something was wrong with him because he just eats and sleeps, but apparently that's normal in the first few days of life! LOL Nothing like my little Amelia who screamed at me for the first weeks/months of her life. :-)
