We're parents! It's been a crazy ride so far and we're loving every second of it. Most new parents happily complain that their babies sleep too much, and while baby Jude does sleep plenty, I still have barely enough time to shower and eat, let alone blog! Maybe that's because I'm madly in love with my little son and so I just stare at him and play with his hands even while he's sleeping.
It was a scary delivery to get Jude into the world, but he came out as our perfect baby boy on May 8th at 11:51 pm. He was 8 lbs 11 oz. and 20 inches long... Keep in mind that I am 5'2". The funny thing is that he was a huge chubby little guy as soon as he was born, but a few hours later when I finally got to see him (I had to be knocked completely out -- it was scary) he didn't seem so huge at all. He still just seemed like our tiny new baby.
Jude is already my friend and the new spirit in our home is amazing. Barry and I already love each other like mad, but you add this perfect boy into the mix and the love triplified! I love Barry even more when I see what a good dad he is and has been since the first second. The love I have for Jude, I can't even describe. It's hard to believe that he's real and that he's mine. He's so handsome and he laughs in his sleep sometimes and he has long fingers like mine, and big lips and lots of hair and I love him. (and I swear I'll post way more pics later -- I need help!)
