The Arrival of Poseidon

Poseidon arrived safely on July 2, 2010 at 2:18pm. The anesthesiologist was a bit excited about the fact that 18 is a lucky number.

I'll go into further details about how much it sucks to have a C-section and how I think women that choose to have one instead of giving birth naturally are crazy another day.

In the meantime here are some pics we have taken the last few weeks of his life. Poseidon is the smallest one of the brood so far. He came in at 7 pounds 6 ounces when both Boy Wonder and Nachos weighed in at over 9 pounds. He also arrived with a head full of black hair! Boy Wonder and Nachos had no hair. Hubby sure gave me a funny look when we noticed his hair. It was quite a funny moment when I think about it. Poseidon also has really skinny chicken legs and slender feet and toes! Not like Boy Wonder and Nachos who have the Hobbit feet. I think Poseidon definitely takes after my side of family in terms of the legs and feet. Too bad Nachos doesn't. It would have been nice for her to have the long slender legs for a girl. Oh well.

So anyways, I'm still trying to juggle pumping, bottle feeding, figuring out Poseidon's constant sleep pattern changes and night feeds. I'll blog some more soon.

Look at how tiny his legs are!
