Growing a Critter

We’re growing him on the outside now

welcome to the world, little one! August 27, 2007

Filed under: birth — crittermama @ 7:12 pm

At one minute after midnight on Monday, 20 August 2007, the Critter made his entrance into the world. He was 7 pounds, 12 ounces, and was 20 inches long. He’s perfect (actually, the pediatrician said he was “absolutely perfect”) and delights us to no end. He made his entrance by c-section, so my recovery is a bit different/longer than we anticipated, but we’re all doing very well. MUCH more to follow – I’m working on a big narrative that will take me a while.


Many more pictures (including Critter Papa in scrubs!) to follow.

    I have seen the Critter. I can also vouch that he is perfect. I think that he is the cutest baby that currently lives in the lower 48!

    Welcome Critter!

    We still have not gotten to our narrative, and Abby is 11 weeks today! Kind of a lot happens when they are on the outside!

    CONGRATULATIONS! Mazel Tov! I hope everyone is adjusting well to life outside the womb. C-section babies are always perfect – their heads don’t get smooshed. I should know – I was one! 😉
