Ryan Robert Fredericks was born July 18th, 2018 at 9:08am after a fairly quick labor (6 hours) and two and half hours of pushing! He was 7 pounds, 4 ounces and 20 1/8″ long.
If you read my post about pregnancy then you know my fears about becoming a mom. I think I’ll have a lot more to say on the subject eventually but for now I think it’s enough to say that it’s so much better than I ever imagined. I don’t think there is anyway to understand this kind of love until you are here. The kind of love, that despite being sore, sleep deprived and a milk hostage, is worth it.
We are settling in to the swing of things in our new normal and I am thankful for this beautiful, healthy and generally happy baby.
