soooooo, Wolfgang A. H. Parsons was born at 10:56 pm on February 19, 2008, after about 18 hours of labor. at birth he was 8 pounds, one ounce, and 20 inches long, with a head full of hair.
we're home now, and kinda tired...more later as we adjust!
Thanks all for your good wishes, words of encouragement, and gestures of goodwill.
we loves y'all!
Heidi, Fred and Wolfgang
pictures to follow, someday.
Hiya, Wolfgang - your chattels await ;-)
Seriously, I'm glad everyone involved is healthy and doing well.
*snort* haw...now the Real Fun begins!
This is the best part, learning his personality, him learning yours, figuring out what works best (sometimes it's what the book sez, and sometimes it ain't), adapting your life to revolve around someone 1/20 your size and completely helpless. It's really alot more fun than it sounds, those maternal hormones help ALOT.
For now, sleep when the baby sleeps. The only thing that really matters is that you get as much rest as you can, and that he gets fed whenever he's hungry and his bum stays dry. Talk to him always. Look him in the eyes when you do it. The first time he smiles will erase every frustration you've ever had in you WHOLE LIFE. And no, that first smile ISN'T gas. I don't care what they say.
COngratulations, you three! Let me know how I can help!
Very glad to hear you're doing well too!
Congrats to you and Fred!
Now you get the joy of watching him try on different facial expressions as he sleeps (my favorite thing about newborns!)
If you need anything, call me!
most of the time he looks like Vladimir Putin, except when he resembles Winston Churchill.
thanks all for the warm wishes!
Mabrook! Congratulations on the wolfgang child! Interesting place you've got here--Look forward to reading your stories of a growing Vladimir-Churchill-Batboy-Patriarchy
