Introducing My Perfect, Full-Term Baby Boy

Scott Day 2 5x7

My baby boy was born, via C-section, on Monday, April 5, at 10:07 a.m. He made it to term–37 1/2 weeks–weighing in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and measuring 20.5 inches long.

He’s perfectly healthy–and, as the nurses keep telling me, is “a beautiful C-section baby,” sans cone head, bruising, scratching and all of the other physical side effects of vaginal birth. I, on the other hand, experienced a perfect, pain-free delivery, but the C-section aftermath is brutal.

I’ll share all the details when I’m less debilitated, less medicated and less exhausted–all of which was worth having him, of course.
