Wow no pain meds or epidural for an 8lb baby?! GOod lord your wife is a tough cookie. She deserves your seat in law school LOL. Congrats!
Thanks Regal., and thanks everybody. I don't know how many fathers there are on this board who've been through delivery w/ mom. It's a crazy emotional experience. I thought i was going to be grossed out by all the blood and nakedness and strangers looking at my wife's private parts. But it's amazing how all of that just goes out the window. it just totally becomes irrelevant. none of that was the slightest concern - it's so hilarious now that i thought it would be.
Well, my mom is rocking Odin to sleep while my wife gets some much needed rest. I've slept about 3 hours in the last 48 hours but i'm still in high gear. But I'm gonna hit the hay now for an hour of shut-eye before the next feeding cycle begins.
BTW, Odin is very cute. Well, i mean, he's got my smash nose and my fat cheeks and my cro-magnon overhanging eybrows. So, he's the cutest ugly baby you ever did see!
Thanks again everyone!
