He's here!

I am just totally head over heels for this little guy, too!!! He is incredibly sweet, very laid back so far, and refuses to curl into a fetal position lol!

Introducing Jonah Mathias - 7 lbs even, 21" long :o)

And here's our obligatory family shot lol!

I love that this pic looks like a party ;o)

I'm enjoying this little man so very much - everything went so smoothly, anesthesia was the best I've experienced, and Jonah seems to be just perfection! He sleeps well, eats very well, doesn't cry much at all, and loves to be snuggled =) Can it get any better than that?

Oh, and I knew that *something* had to go wrong - and it did. I ended up having my IV put in 4 times before it was all said and done lol! I'll take it - everything can't be flawless, right? Plus a couple of major differences of opinion on the hospital's newer policies. All in all, just enough to make me feel like balance has been maintained, but nothing horrible at all!

I hope my nurse comes in soon so I can try to get some sleep tonight...!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I didn't think you'd be online that fast after, so I didn't bother to check anything online these past 4 days - my loss, apparently!

Jonah is so cute - and I have absolutely no problems seeing that he has the same face as Noah :)
A great family shot too, btw!
