The babe

As I'm sure you've probably figured out, the badge baby finally arrived. Our little lieutenant (hereafter known as LT) was born on May 2. I like to think it was the full moon, the barometer, spicy food, etc. And the fact that he was due on the 4th. Since it's been almost six weeks and I've forgotten how it really felt, I'll take this moment to brag...it was entirely natural. No drugs, no epidural.
LT weighed in at 8lb, 2.4oz. He was 21 inches long. We're doing really well! J has been off the entire time with me. He goes back to work this week, which I'm not thrilled about. The independently wealthy really have it made. I go back to work next week. Even less thrilled about that. I'd love to stay home and just be with my little cuddle monster full time. Ah well...such is life. Hope you've all been doing well!

Well done Badge Bunny he will grow up big and strong just like his old man. Thats a nice healthy weight, my little lad was 9lb8 and was 23inchs long. This was abit of a pain for my missus as she is only 5ft2 tall.

Amy, he is so beautiful! Yes, it will be so hard to leave him and go back to work. You are very lucky that your husband has been home all this time. Most of us didn't have that luxury.

I'm so happy for you, your husband and especially little baby who was lucky enough to be born to a wonderful mother...:)

Aww, thanks guys! Yeah, we think he's pretty cute too. We do have a few pieces of clothing that have little police cars on them but most first-responder-based clothing for kids has firemen on it! Hmm, maybe I should open a cafepress shop...

Oh and Big Fella, I'm only 5'2 as well, so my empathies to your wife.
