A Mommy and her boys

Playing, diapers, learning diapers, feeding, diapers and growing…one day at a time!

Harrison DeLyle is the cutest! May 31, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 11:34 pm

Well, he is four days old now, and everything is still going great! He eats really well. He is just overall a great baby. He only cries when he is getting his diaper changed.

Mommy is doing great. I feel amazing considering I had major surgery four days ago. I feel much better now that the staples are out! I hate not being able to do everything I want to, but I know I need to take it slow. My mom is here and is making sure that I take my naps when Harrison is asleep.

Last night was a really good night. I got up and got him from his crib for each feeding on my own and I fed him and changed him and put him back on my own. I know there is help if I need it, but I feel so good that I don’t mind doing it. I needed Brian’s help on one of the explosive diapers that Harrison had.

Thanks for all of the support.

Congrats to Shannon on their new bundle of joy!


Mommy here… May 30, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 9:30 pm

Well, hello all of my blogger “family” and others. This is mommy here. I’m home, safe and sound, and we have THE BEST baby ever! He feeds amazingly EVERY time and he has since his first latch (sorry to those that have had problems). He is huge! Actually, he is down almost a pound since birth. He weighed 10 lbs, 7 ounces at birth and this morning he was 9 lbs, 9 ounces. But because he is SO big, the nurse wasn’t worried. My C-section incision is tender and sitting up can be hard, but really, I feel amazing. I will post the labour story later when I have more time. Thanks for all of the support!


Pictures of our little wee one! May 29, 2006

Just FYI, the previous post, as well as this one, were made by Brian, Devynn’s Hubby. She and baby are still in hospital for at least another day. I know everyone was waiting for pictures, and I was in no position yesterday to post anything, since I posted that announcement at 3:00 this morning. Anyways, we named our little boy Harrison DeLyle (DeLyle is Devynn’s grandfather’s name). He is having a little more trouble today than yesterday, but is doing really well. We had a few poops, but no wet diaper, yet. We are just waiting for that and for him to want to feed more.
Anyway, here are some pics, with more, I’m sure, to come.


Further to Devynn’s post from yesterday. May 28, 2006

So those contractions Devynn had yesterday were the real deal!!! We went to the hospital at about 5:30 and had a little baby boy at 11:33 pm on May 27th. He was 10 lbs, 7 oz, and 21 inches long. I will post more (or Dev will) once we all get back from the hospital, along with pictures, but she did have to have a C-section, because his head was too big. Both mom and baby are doing fine, but no names yet. We’re working on that.

Well, I am still having irregular contractions. Not exciting. I went walking last night…no luck! This waiting game sucks! But I know the end is in sight now. I’ll let you know if anything exciting happens!

Thanks to all of my readers out there! So much fun!


Update… May 25, 2006

The contractions stopped after about 12 hours of them. BUMMER! I feel nauseous and hungry at the same time. Well, I’m off to try and eat something. I’ll keep you updated!
