so i’ve been severely lacking on posting…anything. between peekay getting busier, trying to prep for this babe to come-then THE BABE COMING!! :) and now just being enamored with his rolls, chubby cheeks and sweet sounds…ha blogging has hit the bottom of my to-do list.

but i thought i’d quickly share the important stats:

-our baby boy was born 11/24 at 9:04am, Wednesday
-at the mountain midwifery center via a natural water birth
-johnny caught :)
-all went super well and dare i say easy (or at least easier than i was expecting)
-i was in labor just under 9 hrs, 7 at home and 2 at the birthing center
-he was 8lbs 3.5 oz and 21″ long
-he came 10 days early
-johnny was amazing and supportive and is a very happy proud papa
-kate, our doula, was incredible and oh-so helpful
-leigh our midwife was exactly what i needed and i’m thankful for the experience she helped us have
-gnarly is adjusting :) and either just wants to smell him or could pretty much care less (or at least she acts that way, although she has reverted from our training and is back in protect the domain mode [which = more barking at people who come over] which we’re trying to work on again…)
-i’m feeling incredible, birth story to come (for those who care-although i promise it won’t turn into just a mommy blog) we came home 4 hrs after he was born and i feel very fortunate to have been able to have a natural birth and think my recovery time and the process as a whole has been much smoother because of it…of course paired w/ the prep work i did with my trainer jill :)

more soon, once we’re established into a better routine/schedule and johnny goes back to work so i have downtime instead of “let’s continue to talk about how stinking cute our son is” time… ;)

but in the meantime, here’s the first meal i made since having rocco- it was easy and delicious! exactly what a new mama needs…
winter enchiladas (we skipped the crema and cheese, for john’s sake)
