A boy!!!

Hello Everyone!

Well our baby boy made his arrival yesterday, April 21st, at 3:59pm. He was pretty darn big at 9lbs 2oz!! His name is Cavan Edward Went, has a few wisps of red hair and is just adorable.

My labour was so much better this time! The only issue was the bleeding. I was told I lost three times the normal amount of blood, but am doing surprisingly well. I did not need a transfusion, thank goodness. Today the nurses monitored my bleeding and how the boy was doing, and by 5pm I was out of there! We are back in our Bed and Breakfast and will be heading home to Faro on Friday.

And of course here are the pictures!

My big boy!


And like a typical man, he loves the booby:


Kisses from dad:


Our happy family! Hunter has the funniest face in this picture. He was pissy that I was hiding his apple on him:

Rob's first comment: " I can't believe she put the boob picture on there". LMAO. You rock girl, although I'm still a little dissapointed you didn't have a puppy. :)

Susan said...

Congratulations to all of the Went family. I'm very happy for the timing and that it went better for you. Wonderful news!!! Kayah

Matthew and Michele said...

Congradulations!

You may end up being to busy to blog now.

:o)

No! You will have LOTS more stories that you will WANT to blog! Yes, you'll be busy but the world needs to hear the great adventures of the Went family in Faro!!

Anyway, congratulations on the sweet addition to your family. He's a very cute biy and Hunter is going to be a fantastic big brother! You all look great!!

Way Way Up said...

Congratulations on the new addition to your family! All the best!

Gen said...

As far as wrinkly babies go, he's absolutely adorable. I'm happy everything went well and that you finally get to experience your love coma at home. Big hug.

ps. You look like you spent a day at the spa, not the mat ward.
You're beautiful!

carole said...

Congratulations on a beautiful baby boy. I just love that last photograph of the boys together. It's a keeper!

Janet Whitesell said...

Congratulations. I am glad you had a boy only because I like the unusual name you picked for him. I still think "Fisher" would have been perfect, though. Matt was a total spoilsport for vetoing that one.

And good gosh, are all baby boys born with such big balls? I am used to puppies where they don't descend until later, and then they are tiny, like the puppy. LOL

Tigger said...

Yahoo baby! Your life is about to become 10x more crazy, hectic, exciting and awesome!! I think that Cavan is a lucky guy to be born into the Went family! I can hardly wait to see you guys (if you are still planning a trip here in the summer)
I am SUPER happy for you!!
