We had our baby! *Updated with PICS*

Hi ladies! I am writing from the hospital. DH brought me the laptop so I am able to get on and share the wonderful news. :)We had a baby BOY!!! It was what I wanted especially cause I really wanted to give DS a brother. We named him Jacob Olivier Mutahi ______________. The middle names are after DH. He is absolutely beautiful! He has lots of long, black hair.He weighed 8 lbs 13 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long and his head was 35 centimeters. Big baby! My previous kids were 6.15, 7.7, and 7.8...so this boy is huge compared to my others. He is a good baby and loves to eat. He is nursing wonderfully and I am doing well in that area also.My whole birth experience was very eventful so when I get a chance I will write it all out. I will just say that I ended up doing it all natural again although I almost caved near the end because the last couple hours were so difficult for me.We are both doing fine though and I am absolutely in love. It was so fun to be surprised and find out this way. Our other 3 kids were fighting over who got to hold him last night when they came to meet him for the first time. And DS is in love...he didn't want to put him down and go home. He is so happy to finally have a brother. Thanks for all the well wishes. I will post my birth story and pics in a few days when I get a chance. Smile

Things are going well. My milk came in on Sunday night-Monday morning and its been uncomfortable for me and hard for him to gulp it down but we are both figuring it out. Will be glad when my milk regulates.

We left the hospital on Saturday afternoon and since we left after only 1 day we had to go back the next day so Jacob could get checked out. He looked great at his appt. and has only lost 3.5 oz from his birth weight. He also had some jaundice upon leaving the hospital and at the appt. the next day it was looking really good.

The kids can't get enough of their baby brother and always want to hold him.

The last two nights have been very different. Monday was very difficult cause he couldn't handle the amount of milk and also is getting used to sleeping in our arms so whenever we try to lay him in the bassinet he wakes up. So Monday night I was up almost all night feeding him, dealing with him waking up, dealing with the extra milk, etc. And yesterday I tried to have him sleep in the bassinet way more so he could get used to it...so last night was actually a lot better. And he slept in the bassinet way more last night also.

He poops a lot and the kids think it is hilarious when I change his dirty diaper, and then within 5 minutes he poops again in a clean diaper. They call him the king of poop. Hehe! They are funny.

Here are some pics of our little guy:
