So we've been bad at updating... sorry.

Lake turns 1 week old today!! Holy crap! How quickly times flies...

Quick recap on the week.

I went into Labour wednesday night around 8. Went to the hospital at 7am. Checked in by 9:30. 3:30 decided it was c-section time - 7:30 finally get in OR. 8:00PM lake Grey was born. Meag and the midwife whisked him to the nursery and to our room where Christa and Abby were waiting with Tym. Tym fell in love on first sight. (uploaded some pictures) Meag brought him down to recovery once I got there and he nursed for a bit, then we went back to the room.

Friday morning Meag went and got Tym and brought her in for a little while. She was so excited to spend time with him. Then she took her to Beth and Jesse's until Sat morning. Friday night Matt, Sarah and Ivy visited, which was lovely. Sat Jesse brought Tym in for a bit, and Andrea came to visit.

He's been a good sleeper except for 1 night so far. We got home from the hospital on Sat night. It was sooooo nice to sleep in our own bed. I've just started moving from our room - so far this incision feels a lot better than the one with Tym. I can definitely tell I've had surgery however!

Denise came by on Sunday and he weighed in at 10lbs 3oz - babies are allowed to lose 10% of their birth weight before they go back up - losing a pound only put him at 9% - chubby boy! On Tuesday he weighed in at 10lbs 9oz. He put on 6oz in 2 days. Needless to say my milk came in. Which was a total surreal experience considering it didn't really come in with Tym - but trickled in slowly. We've been feeding him every 2 hours or so during the day - to leave longer stretchs at night to sleep, so far it's been working good.

We are interested to know how much weight he's put on today, Claudia should be by. She'll also finish taking out my stitches.

Monday was our first outing - I had a chiro appt, then we picked Tym up from school - she was stoked to show him off!! Yesterday we went shopping for the first time - the Herb and Spice. It was quick, he lasted better then I do. I was wiped when we got home!

Meag has been amazing!! She's done everything around the house. It's been exhausting entertaining the kid while trying to get snuggle time and everyone feed. She should get a glod star! Right now she is braving the mall to finish up the last of our xmas shopping.

I think that's a quick run down of Lake's first week. thank you to all our friends who've been over to help out with food or playing with Tym, it's been invalubale!
