Sixteen days ago I had a baby. Having a newborn and an almost-three-year-old doesn't leave a lot of time to get on a computer, so this is my first opportunity to introduce you to my son:
Drummond Michael Z-M
He was born November 1, 2015 at 7:33am after a four hour labor (more on that in a later post!). He was 7 lbs 13 oz, and 21 inches long. He was born healthy, and it was a blessedly uncomplicated birth.
Drum is now over two weeks old. A few days ago he weighed in at 8 lbs 4.5 oz, so he's eating and growing well! And I've been feeling decent, as well, which is a big change from my experience when Mo was born. I have a lot to say about my post-partum experience, but that will have to be a later post, too. For now, more pictures.
This is the one I used to introduce him on Instagram:
Mo was interested in her brother for about 30 seconds when she came to the hospital to meet him:
Here he is the first night he was at home:
Mike went back to work this week, and I'm home alone with Drummond, and he's starting to stir from his nap. More later!
