Carter Aaron Is Here!

Carter Aaron arrived on July 2 at 9:41 am! He weighed 10 pounds, 11 ounces (I told everyone he was big!!) and was 22 inches long. I had him completely naturally and the labor was a whirlwind. I went from 5 cm to 9 cm just on the way from triage to the delivery room!

I'm a little late getting this up because he was in the NICU for 5 days after his birth. He had some sort of infection (they think it might have been pneumonia developing, but we'll never know for sure) and they wanted him to be on antibiotics for 5 days. That was a nightmare....I'm so glad it was only 5 days and I have a newfound respect and admiration for the mama's who have babies in the NICU for weeks or months. I can't even imagine what that would be like!

But we got to bring him home yesterday and I am so thankful to have my whole family under one roof! I am working on his birth story and will hopefully be able to post it soon!

Congrats! And sorry about the NICU stay--one of my twins was in for twelve hours and it seemed like a lifetime.
