We're home

Well, I don't feel much like blogging the details yet, but I thought I'd post some pics. and the main info. people are looking for.

5:30 AM on 7/27/09:
(we thought we'd get a better picture inside the hospital, but it never happened...)

Walter James Brasfield
weight at birth: 7 lbs. 8 oz.
length: 20 1/2 in.
He has super blond hair and loooong fingers and toes. There was a slight scare that he had strep, so he had an IV in the whole time at the hospital and we only found out today that he could come home with us today without staying longer for antibiotics. The antibiotics in the IV gave him a little jaundice, but I think he'll be just fine soon enough. He's a super chill baby so far and really has not cried much at all. Let's hope it stays that way!

This c-section was MUCH better than the last. It was nice not to have to go through 18 hours of labor in addition to major surgery. I didn't have the shakes afterward, and my recovery has felt better all around. I'm pretty tired, though, so this is going to have to suffice for a little bit.

Dean's been pretty good about it all, though I know I'm going to have to be REALLY careful about leaving them in the same room without an adult for any length of time. Not because he's malicious, but because he's a very curious and helpful not yet 2 year old!

congratulations!! He is beautiful. And he does have LONG fingers - wow! What a sweetie. I remember being really scared about leaving P and M in the same room together alone after I brought her home. P once locked me in the garage while I ran in there real quick to do laundry so he was alone with the baby and I panicked. I had to wait for Hubs (10-15 mins) to come home from work to unlock the door. Luckily nothing happened, but I was a mess.

congrats again! I am so happy for you and your sweet little family!

Love the name! What a cute little bean. His older cousin (by two whole days) is napping and we're gearing up for a few visitors this afternoon.

Dean reminds me of some of my own childhood pictures. I'll see if I can scan them for you one of these days.
