Here is my brand new darling, adorable, sweet baby boy, Lucas Ryne. Born Friday, December 14 at 6:46 a.m., weighing in at 7 lbs. 8 oz. and measuring 20 inches. He's an absolute delight (when not feeding hourly) and the most handsome baby around. Poor little guy - I thought he was a girl.

It wasn't easy getting him to the outside world either. I was in labor from 9:15 a.m. on Thursday. We made it to the hospital about 8:00 p.m. By that time I was in so much pain that I was vomitting profusely. So I caved. I asked for the epidural. Which of course slowed everything down. I made it to 8cm and then came to a halt. So Lucas made his entrance in a different way, via a C-Section and even then refused to come out!

But he's here with us now and we wouldn't trade him for anything in the world. Even if he does seem to have his days and nights mixed up.

Congratulations again!!! He's just beautiful.

I can't wait to hold him.

He is adorable and how the hell do you look so good after having a C-section???
I think Lucas looks like Tom. Sorry, but that's how it goes. He'll start to look like you in a couple of years, lol.
You look so happy and content. I am so happy for you three!!!!

Congratulations my friend! I think he looks like Tom. Sorry, he'll start to look like you in a couple of years.
How the hell do you look so good after having a C-Section???
I'm so happy for the three of you!

Di - Thanks and he's eagerly awaiting you to come visit!!

Kerry - I have no idea. That's like the best photo EVER of me. It's very odd! He's delicious though and we keep vascilating over who he looks like. I think he's got more of Tommy in him - especially personality wise - a very stubborn little boy!!! I am sleeping when he sleeps and last night we even got him to sleep in the crib!!!

I second the whole looking good thing. Sheesh. I think people are going to want your head on a platter for looking so relaxed and content.

And I am so sorry that I referred to your bundle as Luke in my previous comment. I am an asshat. Sheesh!

Asking for the epi doesn't mean ya caved! No one gets a medal for going sans pain meds.

BG - I go back and forth. Sometimes I call him Lucas, sometimes I call him Luke and sometimes I call him Stinky!

I swear, that's the best picture ever of me. Even better than my wedding pictures. Which is either really cool or really sad!

Well, after finding out that what I was going through was BACK LABOR, I didn't feel so bad about the meds!
