Alexander Blake Johnson was born at 3:04 a.m. on Saturday, November 19th, tipping the scales at 9 pounds 4.5 ounces, and measuring 22 inches long. When the midwife put him on my stomach it was the closest I've ever come to experiencing tunnel vision — he just went on and on and on. Baby is great, mother is still sore but the percoset helps (my friend Karen commented, “Wow, you're really druggin' it up…”), and father is over the moon.
The past week has brought a firstborn child, my 34th birthday, Thanksgiving with my divorced parents and Dad's fiancee. So y'all will have to excuse me while I go take a nap. 🙂
