Grant William, born at 9:06pm on June 30. 7lbs, 12.3oz and 19in long.
We arrived at the hospital at 8:45pm, after I labored at home all day. We maybe waited a little long to come in, but it worked out fine. His birth was unmedicated, because of the timing, but I would have taken literally any drug they offered (they did not offer).
He was also born in caul – his bag of waters wasn’t ruptured – which is pretty special.
He did perfectly on the apgar, and took to breastfeeding like a pro.
As with the twins, I had no tearing and needed no stitches (the moms out there know what I’m talking about), which is a very nice bonus.
He is very musical, with lots of whistles and chirps already.
Bob did an amazing job supporting me, even as I screamed in the wheelchair through the entire hospital and tried to squeeze his hand off.
We are great, and we are complete. I am looking forward to the twins meeting Grant in the morning!
