baby

ready to go home
apologies to all for my prolonged absense--i am sure you all know how this goes. i have been trying to get something posted for days, but my time is just disappearing in a sea of feedings, phone calls, people visiting, feedings, laundry, feedings, and napping when i get a chance. we are doing well. the baby is beautiful and i could not love him more. here are the stats:

name: kieran grey coposky
arrival: april 29, 2008 8:49pm
weight: 8 lb. 13 oz.
length: 24.25 in. (not a typo--he's the longest baby i have ever seen)

there's a little set of pictures on flickr here.

the phrase that keeps running through my head is this:
daughter to a father, lover to a fighter, mother to a son.

i am simply stunned.

Congratulations!!! I checked out the picts...WOW, he is so big and so alert, and such a cutie! Hope you are doing well, getting as much as rest as feasible, and letting everyone else do everything for you (take advantage of it while you can)!

So happy to see this. He's gorgeous. Just perfect. Don't worry about anything else. Just snuggle up and enjoy yourself.
If you want a visit just give a call. It's nice enough for me to skulk on your porch or something.

Bailey and I have been checking and checking and checking several times each day! He is "soooo cute" (to coin Bailey's favorite phrase these days - she uses it for everything, but was extra emphatic about Kieran). I will definitely stop in the next time I am out your way. CONGRATULATIONS!

I left a comment on your Flickr. Congratulations!! He's beautiful! Aren't you just loving your baby more than you thought was possible? And then double that? Or triple that? So glad you are all doing well. Look forward to hearing your mama adventures and seeing more pictures!
