I don’t remember the last time I updated this blog! Well- we welcomed a baby boy, Jake, on November 27th. He came into this world via c section after a full 2 weeks of contractions and almost zero progression. At 41 weeks- they wouldn’t let me go any longer and I had to have a repeat section. I was upset and only as of recently have I accepted the delivery as it was meant to be. I didn’t bond with Jake right away like I had with Olivia. I am attributing that to the disappointment in delivery. I had this idea of a natural birth, immediate skin to skin, and delayed cord clapping in my mind. I know it sounds ungrateful, I should have been lucky to just have my baby. I was. I just think I needed to process.
Jake is a wonderful little man. So far he is relaxed, happy, and dare I say easy? My daughter is a tyrant. She’s strong willed and can be a bully. I feel like we deserve Jake to be the polar opposite!
