Just in case anyone hasn't heard.....

He's here! Finally! After waiting, and waiting, and waiting, 9 days past my due date, Scott Alexander Power has arrived. As of this writing he is just over an hour shy of being exactly nine days old....hard to believe that it's been that long already! I stayed at mom's from the 5th of February until today (the 14th of March), so that I could have him at the IWK. Nobody thought I would end up being induced, especially me! As it was, Pregnancy Induced Hypertension can be thanked for getting me induced at all- the doctors were going to let me wait a little while longer, regardless the effect on my mental health! At any rate, he weighted 8 pounds, 10 ounces at birth, and was 21 inches long; a perfectly healthy little boy. When we left the hospital he had dropped down to 8lbs 4 ozs, but was 8lbs 11 ozs at his 6-day-old appt on Thursday, so he is obviously thriving. He's a great eater and a great sleeper - we've already had a few nights where he slept for four hours or so. At any rate, we're home now (Alan is happy to be here, but I bet it won't be long before he misses Nathan!) and looking forward to getting settled in, but I just need to say a public thank you to the family for all their help and support (and fetching, and carrying, and chauffering, etc etc etc) - it definitely made the process a million times easier!
