Actaeos Arrives!!!!!





On Thursday night, Costas, Tom, and I went out to dinner, then played a round of miniature golf. Costas and I went to bed at 9:30. I woke up at 1am having contractions and back pain. The next hour the contractions were getting stronger and closer together. Tom went to bed to get in a quick nap. By 2:45am the contractions were really close together so we headed for the hospital about a half hour later. We arrived around 3:30am and I was dilated to 7cm. The contractions were really close and the back labor very intense. At 5:45am I felt like pushing so the doctor came to the room. I pushed two times and Actaeos arrived at 5:54am. He weighed 7lb. 7oz. and was 19 1/2 in. long.

Tom went to get Costas at home. Costas was so cute around the baby. At first he acted shy, then he came over and gave the baby a present. Costas was so gentle. He kept touching and kissing the baby. Costas went to preschool and Tom went home to get some sleep. They came back after school. We left the hospital at 9pm that night.

Actaeos is a quiet baby so far. Costas has been great with him and doesn't show any signs of jealousy. So far everything has been wonderful!
