Back in Black

"Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes I'm back in black"

Quick Update:

Baby WKTB arrived on Friday, May 21st at 12:54 am. He was only 54 minutes late for his due date! Not too shabby. Only took some labor induction acupuncture, 21 hours of un-medicated labor, and a grand finale of a c-section for him to make his great escape. Now, seven weeks later everyone is happy, healthy, and doing just swimmingly! Did I mention he arrived at a whopping 11 lbs. 11 oz and 22.5 inches long? Yeah. I tested negative for gestational diabetes, so I'm not sure what happened there, but priority number one of "Healthy Mom, Healthy Baby" was achieved immediately, and for that we are grateful!

WKTB, in the flesh. Back in black, because that is my go to wardrobe color until I achieve my pre-pregnancy figure and weight, and even then I have quite a journey to achieve my goal weight. WKTB is another big, and very important reason to work towards becoming a healthier me! I hope to reach my goal weight by riding my bike. (In addition to joining weight watchers...again!)

We are blessed to have friends that gifted us with a Burley trailer to haul the little guy to and fro! It will be a bit yet before he is able to hold his head up with a helmet. I know time will go by faster than I would like...but I do look forward to full family bicycle outings!

-2.8 lbs (Since 7/2/10)
72 lbs to go!

Congratulations!!! 11 pounds, you're a saint. I've never heard of a baby that big.

What great news, welcome baby!
