We welcomed baby Paxton Xavier on November 24th at 4:04pm.
He was a whopping 9 lbs 3 oz and almost 22 inches long! Running throughout one's pregnancy and avoiding sweets does not guarantee a small baby. At all! I have no idea where he fit; no wonder my belly and ribs hurt so much in the end.
The first week was full of little sleep, tiny cries, and snuggling that felt surreal and romantic as only newborn hormones can make one feel. Unfortunately the good times were cut short by some pretty serious complications. We're recovering now and I started to feel better in the last couple of days, but I'll share the whole birth story in another post.
We're all in love with our little guy - even big brother, who may be a little bit too into the baby. Uh-oh!
