It is day 4 of Baby Sasha and we have already had to do some divide and conquer with the kids… Not too much because we have tremendous support from family.
Everyone is still doing well and we even managed to figure out to get a good amount of sleep on night 3.
Erin and I are so happy to announce that Sasha Anne Mayer made a slightly early arrival earth-side. She was plucked a bit early due to mom’s gestational hypertension (and an attempt to avoid a repeat of the severe preeclampsia from last time). She was born at a bit over 38 weeks and weighed 5lbs, 6oz and measured 18 inches.
So far the experience has gone much more smoothly than the last time. Everyone is doing well happy and healthy.
We are currently working on the name for Sasha’s chicken-shaped nursing pillow, Theo’s eventually was called “buck buck”. And yes, we had to get a second $50 nursing pillow because as soon as his mom suggested that his new sister would need his, Theo started sleeping with his pillow every night… Names currently in the running:
- Kikiriki (The Spanish word for a chickens sound)
- Spark Plug
