Okay, everyone! I uploaded some pictures of Baby Alistair on my Facebook page. I think I made it so anyone can view them, but if you have trouble, send me a comment below.
By the way, Alistair was born by c-section early on Thanksgiving morning. This was certainly a different birth for us, since we’ve been used to natural, non-medicated, home births. But between my Addison’s disease and his prematurity, both Alistair and I encountered quite a few problems during labor. It wasn’t my idea of a dream birth, but I am truly thankful to God for keeping us both safe. Sometimes our plans just aren’t His!
I’m not able to breastfeed Alistair (another big change for us!), so I’ll have to share some of the things we’re doing for his formula (give me a few days, weeks, whatever, LOL). There are so many healthy things we can do in special health situations, and I hope I can give you all some ideas, in case you should ever find yourself in a situation like this.
Finally, check out his high-class “bassinet” (our laundry basket)! He looks so adorable in it! It’s light enough that I can lift him, and it keeps him out of the way of traffic in our house, with six siblings and a dog. 🙂
Enjoy the pictures! It’s so much fun to have a baby that maybe I’ll never return to “serious” blogging! 🙂
