Hi everyone!! Congrats to everyone who had their babies since Friday! I can't wait to catch up and meet them all!!

And Thank You, Trish for keeping everyone updated for me

Max was born Saturday Sept 18 at 2:56 pm, 8 lbs 12.8 oz and 21 inches long. He's strong and skinny and loves to flail his arms and have them up around his face (just like during delivery...he was born with a hand right at his head). My brother says he's like Will Ferrell in Taladega Nights..."I don't know what to do with my hands" And he has the longest fingers and toes ever!! He's going to be a little wide receiver His name is Maximus Derek, but so far everyone calls him Max (or Maxy or Mad Max ).

I'll write a full birth story later. But for now, his labor was 16 hours of back labor (they put the prostoglandin in and contractions started within 15 minutes...no one expected it to be that quick) trying to get him to turn and not be posterior. Once he flipped, it took about an hour to dilate from 5 to 10, but somewhere in there he flipped back over...silly boy! And 2.5 hours of pushing later he shocked everyone by coming into the world face up. And I screamed for a c-section for the last 2 hours But he's definitely worth every second! I'm so in love

We're still at the hospital waiting to be discharged in a few hours. He's a little bit jaundiced, so he was under the lights all night last night and is back under them until his pedi gets here at 4:30 to check on him. He's got a great latch, but doesn't suck deep enough (he's a lazy baby ). He's being supplemented with formula until my milk comes in, so I have this nifty little contraption that gives him formula WHILE he nurses. It's pretty tricky! I can't wait to have him home

Here are some pictures!

Awww... Amy! He's just precious! Kellen has super long toes and fingers, too... maybe these 2 fellas can play catch together

Great pics and WOW to 16 freaking hours of BACK labor! OMG, girl! You deserve a HUGE drink after that. I don't wish back labor on anyone (had it with DD!) but am so glad you both are healthy and well!
