benedict harris meyers.

the meyers family is very happy to announce that our son, benedict harris meyers was born on july 4th at 4:39 pm. benedict made his arrival a bit earlier than expected, but still weighed in at a healthy 7 pounds, 8 ounces and 20.5 inches long. and as you can clearly see, he is absolutely perfect: 

i hope you dont mind, but im going to spare you (and me) the long, dramatic, gory, detailed birth story and go with the short version instead: 

benedicts birth didnt go exactly as planned, after a scheduled cesarean with alice we had hoped for a VBAC, naturally if possible. i did go into labor on my own and well, labor was very long and slow and unproductive. so we still got the VBAC, just a very augmented and medicated one. which i am totally 100% ok with because, i mean: 

benedict is an absolutely delightful baby. he eats and sleeps like a champ and is very content to just go along with whatever the rest of us are doing. everyone (alice and cats included) is adjusting nicely to life as a family of four, and i still cant get over how much faster and easier my recovery has been this time around. 

now, as far as blog things are concerned, i had scheduled myself a few weeks of "maternity leave" so that i could work on the finishing touches of my rebrand/relaunch in september. since my due date was the 13th i had big plans for getting everything for july and august scheduled before anything baby-related started to happen. but since benedict came so early (and technically my labor process started at the end of june...) i only got most of the way there. so while the next few weeks might have a post or two missing, i do have some great guest posts coming up, as well as some big exciting things happening in september when i come back from my break. 

we spent our fourth of july weekend in the hospital, what did you do over your holiday?

  1. Talk about a perfect baby! He's gorgeous. Glad to hear that everyone is doing well!

  2. i know I'm totally biased, but seriously, he could not be any more perfect.

  3. Congrats! He's beautiful!

    So glad that he's such an easy-going baby. Björn is the same; he cries when he's hungry or his diaper is dirty and stops when it's fixed... the rest of the time he chills and sleeps (and now is starting to smile and coo).

  4. thank you! benedict is SO different from alice but from what i hear, boys tend to be less fussy than girls as babies.
