Introducing Baby…

I know, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted but I hope you’ll forgive me since I have some exciting news.

On May 12th The Husband and I welcome our little bundle of joy; Nathan Rocky. He weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs. 9.7 ounces and 20 inches long and he was worth every hour of my 42 hour labor.

I’m not quite sure what I expected but after 30+ hours of baby classes I thought I had the whole thing figured out. As any parent will attest, there is no amount of classes and reading that can prepare you for parenthood. I guess I thought it was going to be a breeze and life would continue on just now we’d be doing it will a little guy in tow. Boy was I wrong.

Nathan is far from a fussy baby but between his jaundice and breastfeeding/latching issues this past month has been a learning experience for all of us.

However I am happy to announce that he is now a month old and 10 1/2 lbs. so we must be doing something right.

Going forward I hope you understand if my posting is a bit spotty but as everyone tell me, they’re only this little once so I plan to treasure every minute with him that I can.

Yours Truly,

Mel
