An update!

Hello, hello!

I thought I'd pop in with a little update! :)

Our little boy, Max, arrived on August 29, 2012, at 2:52pm.  He weighed 7lbs, 6oz.  Labor and birth went pretty much how I would have wanted it to go, which was great!  I stayed at home as long as possible before traveling up to the birth center, and we arrived at about 8:14am.  I actually had an appointment that morning, at 8:30am.  Well, I was checked out and everything was going the way it should, and I was ready to be admitted - yay!  So, they took me downstairs to the birthing rooms.  I had to wait in one room while they were finishing getting the one with the birth tub ready, but we were soon able to move to that one.  I had a doula (an awesome one at that) and Seth with me, and my mom arrived at around 11:30am or so.  I was able to actually have a water birth, which was an incredible experience. :)  And everything went very well, so I was able to go home around 9pm that night!  It was so nice to be able to sleep in my own bed. :)

Max has grown so much already!  Here's a photo of him when we arrived home that night:

And here's the little chunker now... :)

He is probably over 10lbs now, just 6 weeks later!  Maybe even 11lbs, haha.  Obviously, he is nursing well. :)  He does pretty well with sleeping at night, just waking up to eat and pretty much going back to sleep, which is awesome.

We'd decided to cloth diaper, which has been going well too.  I use a few different brands, but I have a few favorites.  They just all look so cute on him!

He has such a personality already...

More soon! :)
