So! Welcome Colin Thomas Kennedy to the world.
My first child was born this past Tuesday, December 28th, at home at 6:38 a.m. He weighed 7 lbs. 12 ou., and arrived 12 days early. Labor was eight hours long. Mom, Dad, and baby are all healthy, happy, and in blissful love.
The one thing that I didn't accurately anticipate? Nursing is sincerely hard work. Hard work as in a complete preoccupation for many hours of every day and night.
