Welcome baby Alek

Alek was born Sunday, September 18 at 6:00 AM.  He's pretty much the best baby ever.  

He:
  • was 7 pounds 1 oz and 20 inches long, with a 14 inch head (people always want the stats)
  • was 10 days late but I'm over it now
  • sleeps great
  • is a good eater
  • soothes to Rage Against the Machine
  • loves his bouncy chair
  • finds diaper changes and swaddling demeaning
  • punches and kicks with surprising accuracy and force
  • is super cute
I'll be back to blogging soon, just wanted to give you an update.  As much as I want to jump back into everything, I need some more time for rest and recovery.  Giving birth is kind of insane physically and emotionally.  Also, you end up with this little person to take home with you.  It's all a bit surreal still!
