We have waited so long for you, little guy, and you’re finally here! Of course, I start crying as I write that sentence… I cried yesterday during his first bath as he cried and shivered through it and then I cried when I found out he’d done great at his circumcision… and now I’m probably crying because its 4am and I’m completely exhausted but even more because we fall in love with him a little more each time we see him (it definitely helps that he’s absolutely adorable and has the most kissable cheeks and nose!).
He was born December 28, 2010 at 3:46pm. I was in labor for about 24 hours until we had him. I ended up having an epidural, because the pain had kept me up all night, when we got to 4cm dilated and then within 4 hours we were at the stage where we could begin to push… and 3.5 hours, and a vacuum extractor, later we could see only a tiny amount of his head. The doctor recommended a c-section because of the way he was positioned (slightly to the side) and because she sensed that he was too big to come through the pelvic bone.. and then half an hour later we had Andrew James Migonis III. He was 9 pounds, 1 ounce and 20 inches long and completely healthy (SUCH good news because of past doctors reports!). He hardly ever cries… we know he could be just turning on the charm for the first few days but we aren’t complaining, that’s for sure!
