It's a BOY!!!!!!

Antony Joseph was born at 8:22 this morning. 7lbs 2oz, 20 inches. He is so sweet and adorable. (I adore him, anyway!) We've had a full day with relatives visiting, so this will be short, but I have lots to say about the c-section (I wouldn't choose it over a vaginal delivery if the choice were to be made, I just got up out of bed for the first time, and OH MY GOD it was painful. But the operation itself was totally cool!) so I will be writing that over the next few days.

He's basically been sleeping since 1pm this afternoon, so I'm going to go now and get some z's while I can. Take advantage of the honeymoon period!

Congratulations! What a wonderful name! I'm glad the operation went well and can't wait to hear more. Hope the healing goes well.

OMG, this is so exciting!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

And, I've had very invasive abdominal surgery in the past -- I'm sure a small c-section scar will actually heal quite quickly. All my friends and cousins who have had c-sections have really liked them. It should be much easier on the body than the 10 inch vertical scar I received during my surgery for ovarian cancer! ;)

Anyway, hope things continue to go well!

All the best,
Nilla

I was thinking today that I remember clearly when you announced that you were pregnant. Since you were only a few weeks behind me, I was so pleased to have another join the ranks.

Here it is just a little while later (in the great span of things) and you have your son.

Congratulations Nico.
