Yesterday morning I called Jack to let him know that his little brother Victor was no longer inside mommy. At 9 pounds, he was nearly 50% larger than Jack and his delivery took only half the time. I think they call that Moore’s Law of Birthing. If we have another child, I am expecting that he or she will be a 12 pound baby delivered after only 2 hours of labor and 20 minutes of intense pushing.
Niki was amazing.
When Niki gave birth to Jack, I helped coach her breathing and held one of her legs. After they took Jack away, I took a step back (out of striking distance) and told her, “I don’t know if I could go through that again. That was rough!”
So this time, after they took Victor away, I leaned over and said, “Do you remember how last time I said I didn’t think I could do this again? Well, I did it!”
I’m sure she’s proud of me too.
