He's Here!

**Same post I put at at my other blog, but keep reading here even if you did there. You guys get the link to newborn photos!*


So sorry that I haven't had time to update my blog. I've been a wee bit busy.

Jonah Benjamin was born at 5:26PM on March 26th. He was 7 lbs 3 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. (Can you believe how tiny he is compared to my last big baby?!! I still can't.)

He is an adorable little baby. We can't get enough of him.

Sorry that I don't have any photos loaded on my computer yet to share. You'll just have to take my word for now that he is beautiful.

Or you can go see our newborn photo session from the hospital at www.bellababyphotography.com and enter in the password:tmil0326schmunk(I wish she'd gotten some with his eyes open. He is one of the most alert newborns I've ever seen!)

We are still in the hospital. He had been really healthy and well, then he developed jaundice. They chose to treat him under the bili lights for a day. We should be able to come home tonight as long as his numbers stay down. So far so good. Just seeing how he's doing out of the lights now. I'm glad he's back in a room with me now. We don't foresee any problems and should leave this afternoon with him.

I had a great delivery and can't wait to share about it. I was in a long labor, but when he decided to come...boy did he! It was a wild and crazy ride...that my OB didn't make it to!

But that's for another time. I'm feeling great and doing well. I haven't had any problems...unless you count my swollen stumps that I used to call feet/legs. Geesh!

That's the update for now. I'm sure I'll have more photos and things to share as we go.

There must be something in the air causing our practitioners not to make it to the births around here! :P
