Nine Pounds!

12 Aug

Welcome to the world, Mr. Maddox! I’m so proud of my cousin, bringing her sweet boy into this world and into our family.

This guy was nine pounds, you guys! That’s amazing to me. He looks so big and perfect – how was he just inside of his mother?! Furthermore, how in the world does that head come out of down there?! According to reports, my cousin was dilated to 6-7 at a little after 11 AM, but somehow ended up having him about 30 mins later.

As someone who would like to have children someday, these are all questions I’m pondering and unable to fathom. Amber, if you have time in what’s sure to be a tiring time balancing two children, and would like to clue me in, please do!

    Oh, man. Pregnancy is so sci-fi. It’s a total mystery to me, too.
