Litttle Owl
Originally uploaded by CrabbyLioness

Sorry to take so long posting, but there's a new man in my life. We made contact a few months ago, but we didn't actually meet until last Tuesday. Since then, the greedy boy has demanded my attention for hours at a time. :)

Owl was born Tuesday afternoon at the midwifery center in Summertown, Tennessee. He's about 10 minutes old in the picture. He was 9 pounds and 21 inches at birth, and came after an hour and ten minutes of labor -- my longest yet.

We came home to north Mississippi Saturday, just in time for his first hurricane. (Don't worry, we're way above the evacuation zone.) I'll post his birth story in a few days.

(I don't need another baby, I don't need another baby, I don't need another baby)

I just gotta keep repeating that when I see such little cuties ;)

What a beautiful boy! Happy snuggling - oh! and baby sniffing (that's my favorite part when they're brand new).

He's precious.
I love love love that pink newborn phase that lasts all of what, a week? Two?

Congrats to you all.
