He's Arrived!

I'll have to make this short and sweet since I only have a few spare minutes and this is LONG overdue.

Christian has arrived! He was born on February 26th (8 days early) and came in weighing 7 lbs. 5 oz.. Already I can see a difference in his personality versus J's personality, but it'll be interesting to see how he develops.

On the whole, things have been going well. We had a bit of a rough start with weight gain, but he seems to have caught up. Breastfeeding is going well, although, he's been nursing every 2-2.5 hrs which means I've gotten NO sleep. It's been brutal and I can't recall if it was this bad with J.

The biggest change so far has probably been for Doc who has had the bulk of the responsibility for J thrust upon him (literally, thrust). It's been a shocker for him since he's basically become J's primary caregiver since I tied at the nipple to C.

Ah, but I will write more again later. I just wanted to give an update before C turned 1.
