Raymond Clay III
Our boy is here! I've been so busy updating facebook that I never got around to updating my blog yesterday. We did end up going to the birth center - they don't have a huge clientele like OB offices but sometimes they go through birth spurts - yesterday they had 3 babies in six hours!
Everything went wonderfully. I had another water birth (at this point I feel like I wouldn't know how to give birth out of the water!) and even though we had to birth at the center we were still at home just a few hours later.
As for the name, we went ahead & named him after Ray, but we'll call him Clay to avoid the confusion of two Ray's in the house.
Clay arrived at 11:21 am and he weighed 8 lbs. 8 oz (1 oz. bigger than Addison!) & was 20.5 inches long.
So far, at just over 24 hours old, he's a dream. Nurses great, proper amount of dirty diapers and...he only woke up once last night. I'm all about sleep training but there's no sleep training a baby less than a day old - the Lord just knew I needed some rest!
Oh, and his sisters are completely in love.
