He made it! I made it! (Phew!) Everyone is so happy Massimo's here. They were all very sweet when they came to meet him in the hospital. I'll spare you all the birth details, for now at least. Massimo was my biggest baby weighing in at 8 lbs 14 oz. and 21" long. (Cannon was also 21") He's lost some weight, as happens, but he seems to be a champ at eating so I'm sure that those lost ounces will go back on quickly. That first night, holding him in the hospital, he did feel heavy. Fun to have a chubby newborn.
He's quite a novelty. Everyone asks if they can be the first to hold him in the morning and after every nap, Sommer not as much as the older three. They patiently and happily hold him and wait for him to make funny noises. The line for helping with his bath in the evening isn't moving fast enough.
I was greeted with a big mural in the front windows.

Four days old. I'm tired, as happens when the baby decides that sleeping during the night isn't as fun as being held because he doesn't want to burp, but happy to have this little boy part of our family, finally.
