First of all, THANKS everybody for your sweet comments and good wishes on the arrival of baby J! I honestly wish I could thank each of you personally. And for those who haven't met him yet, I'm thrilled to introduce...Mr Joaquin Rashid. Our baby boy finally arrived a little over two weeks ago. He was born on October 7th (9 days before his due date) and was 8lbs, 13 oz.
I knew in advance he was a big baby so the days before delivery I was secretly hoping he would decide to arrive a little earlier- I was told he might be over 9 pounds! Thankfully and surprisingly, delivery was much faster and easier than expected - I'm not saying it was painless, easy, or fast though! Just much, much better than I imagined it would be.
These last two and a half weeks have been the happiest and craziest all in one. I'm enjoying my little prince at home, and although we are all super busy (and sleepless) here, I'm learning to just seize the moment and these amazing newborn days as much as possible. Aww, I already feel he's growing extremely fast...!
