(Steve cutting Jack's umbilical cord)
He screamed and screamed and screamed. He screamed on my chest, getting dried off, he screamed on the scale, he screamed getting diapered and swaddled and screamed in Steve's arms and mine. He screamed for about half an hour. He finally calmed down and was very awake and alert. He stayed awake for over an hour.This labor was my fastest of the three. It was only about 6 hours from the time labor was started until I started pushing, it was 16 hours with both Steven and Gabby. But this was my hardest and most painful delivery. The epidural seemed to just stop working at the end. Maybe it was still working a little but not as much as it did when I had Steven and Gabby, for sure. The recovery seems to be going just fine. Thankfully I did not tear or need an episiotomy, so no stitches makes for easier healing.
The last week with Jack has been so sweet. He just seems to fit right into our family like he's always been here. His brother and sister just love him. He is very sweet, sleeps great, eats great and poops great. He has mastered all three of a newborn's skills! I am so thankful for this sweet blessing we've been given. I've always wanted a house full of little Kopers. And here I am.
