Not Of Woman Born 24th March 2011 at 3.17am (the labour started at 2am on the 23rd.)
Mother and Baby are both healthy, although of course longpig is still recovering from the surgery.
At 3.435 kg and just under 21in, he is taller and maler than we expected. Reflux folklore wins this round - he has a full head of wavey brown hair. His eyes are dark blue, and he actually looks quite a bit like me in my baby photos! Photos and, if I'm unlucky, video to come soon via Hazel.
Apologies that I wasn't able to post this at the time, because the hospital free computers lock down facebook and livejournal among others.
Hazel's making fantastic progress, already pushing herself way too hard when she should be taking it easy. Most of the time her painkillers work well.
Howell is well on track for all his eating, pooping and peeing. We've had a few problems with the feeding, but it seems to be sorted now.
