Nathan Alan!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by lhoham @ 11:04 pm

On March 5, 2010, Ross and I welcomed our little handsome man, Nathan Alan. He weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 22 1/2 inches long! He has a full head of hair and blue eyes!

The birth (in my traditional fashion) was long and complicated. After 16 days of prodromal labor, 31 hours of active labor, 2 epidurals, 1 spinal block, losing consciousness due to a very high fever, a bad infection, and six antibiotics….we finally had our man! I’ll write the full birth story later.

We are trying to catch our breath and I’m trying to recover from all of the above. I’m on lots of meds still but feeling better every day. We are so in love and happy! We are trying to adjust to our new lives and are just so in love!

More later!


  1. Oh my. Congrats on a healthy baby after all of that craziness. Love the name. And can’t wait to hear further details of the ordeal. Maybe I’d better wait to read it till after I’ve had my kid…

  2. Congratulations – I’m sorry that labor/delivery was such a rough road for you, but I know you are thrilled to be holding Nathan in your arms now!!
