A bit more about Owen August’s first day; plus Oliver meets his little brother

Owen August’s first day has been a good one. He came into this world crying, but has been pretty quiet since. He picked up feeding right away, and has been doing well all day. In terms of measurements, he’s 7 pounds, 13 ounces, and his length is 20.5 inches. Here’s a little bit more about our day:

We checked in at about 5:50 a.m., and were prepped fur surgery. The delivery was quick and easy (but it was surgery, so not THAT easy – just relatively so). Afterward, we headed to the recovery area for about an hour. Both sets of grandparents arrived around 9 a.m., so we brought them into the room in pairs (only two guests at a time). First, the grandmas, then the grandpas. Those were really sweet moments.

Next, Owen was whisked to another area of the hospital for measurements. After we settled into our permanent room, I took the grandparents and Oliver down to the cafeteria for lunch. It was only 11 a.m., but I was STARVING! When we came up, we let Oliver into the room to meet his little brother. Tired and ready for a nap, Oliver wasn’t too interested. He just stared at Owen, as seen in one of the first pictures of their encounter here:


And here:


Eventually, we negotiated with Oliver. “Give him a kiss and we can go and you can take a nap.” He complied:


Then he grabbed my mom’s hand to leave. Everyone was gone by 1 p.m. We had a quiet afternoon, napping, bonding with Owen, talking to nurses and watching U.S.A. destroy Finland by a score of 6-1 in the Winter Olympics quarterfinal game.

Sarah’s Aunt Kay arrived around 5 p.m. and stayed for an hour. After that, I grabbed lunch, we bonded more with Owen and now we’re just waiting another 90 minutes until his next feeding. In fact, as I type this, Sarah and Oliver are both sleeping. They both look so innocent.

Sarah is feeling – and appears – much better after this surgery than she did two years ago after the emergency delivery of Oliver. She just ate some Cheerios, which was significant as it was the first solid food she was allowed to eat since last night. She’s been such a proud, sweet mom today:


We hope to be in bed by about 10 p.m., and we have a busy day on Saturday with lots of guests stopping by. Should be fun.
