Quick Update - He is here

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I never knew motherhood would be so tiring. I haven't got the time to do anything but feed the baby, sleep and eat. Thank God for my mother and my SO.

So this is just a quick update. My son Jaelan Kai was born on November 7, 2013, 7lb 9oz. He was delivered vaginally. Funny thing is I went to the hospital the Wednesday to be induced. I was told I had to be monitored for 24 hrs before they induced me. The doctor stretched my cervix and told me she was hoping that I went into labour before morning so she could avoid the induction. I started feeling contractions that afternoon and had him at 12:25 p.m. the next day. He was 10 days overdue and absolutely perfect! emoticon

Thanks to everyone, especially my Diamond sisters for your support. Thank you too Sanshe. Your comments really helped me to get through that difficult and long waiting period.

Here is a pic

Btw someone should have warned me that taking care of a newborn is hard work! lol

    OMGoodness!!!! He is absolutely adorable! Love at first sight! Makes me want to reach through the screen and just cuddle him good!
BTW... we probably told you it was hard work, but shoot, we never really know until it's there! CONGRATULATIONS mama, you did a wonderful job!
Love and hugs,

P.S. If you'd had him just one day earlier, i would've had a new birthday buddy! :)

    AW, he's adorable! Take all the time you can to snuggle him up and take plenty pictures.
As Elaine said they grow up so fast!
LOL - it is hard work and just keeps going (not scaring you, am I?)

Extra hugs to both of you from me today
Hope that you guys are both doing well.

    Not only is taking care of a newborn hard work, but you will forget by the time the next one rolls around. We all manage, though, then those kids leave home and have kids of their own and you wonder where the time went.

    Newborns are definitely difficult to handle, but so incredibly worth it.

What a beautiful, beautiful baby! Congratulations!

  WOW! I'm late, but congratulations, hun. He is adorable.
Yes, I have a friend who had a baby last year and every day is a struggle but to see the smile on the child's face is so precious.
Again, congratulations.
Best wishes.
