Hi everyone! It's been a while since my last blog post. I could have done a 41 week update on Monday August 1st. As it is I'm sort of kicking myself for not taking a picture on Sunday July 31st like I did every other Sunday for months because I FINALLY had my baby at 41 weeks and 5 days (almost 6 days)!! But I didn't do those things because I was distracted at the time by being in labor.
We had a boy and named him Harold. He was born at the very end of the night on August 1st. We had a very uncomplicated birth and everyone was happy and fine after. I'm going to do a video of my Labor & Delivery Story soon, so keep an eye out for that if that sort of thing interests you. He weighed 6 lbs. 14 oz. and was 20 in. long. He is perfect and adorable and everyone loves him...obviously. :)
We have been calling him Harold and also Hal as a nickname. Actually, Steve and I have been calling him Baby a lot, because after not knowing if he'd be a girl or boy and not settling on an official name until he was a solid day old we are still getting used to the fact that he's a real person with a name and an identity. But every day it feels more real.
Steve is still at home with us, which has been AMAZING and everyone should be able to have their partner home for a month...actually more would be better, but a month is at least helpful in terms of recovery for the one who gave birth. Today I drove the car for the first time in over a month and I've started doing dishes again. It's very exciting over here. Ha ha!
There is a little Meet My Baby video up on my main channel. I've linked it here and embedded it down below so you can watch it. We're also back to daily vlogging!! So if you want to keep up with us more often then make sure you're subscribed to ManfridaTV so you don't miss anything.
Thanks for reading!
