James Wyatt McKinnon Briggs has arrived…

July 13, 2010

I am so very, very happy to announce the safe arrival of baby James. After a lovely, natural, 4-hour labour in the wee hours of June 30, my incredibly adorable son made his way into the world. He was a tiny bit early at 36 weeks 3 days gestation but that seemed full term after our last experience. He spent 2 nights in the Special Care Nursery due to low blood sugars, but joined me in the ward on day 3. What a beautiful experience this time around. Everything I could dream of.

The statistics:
Weight: 2960 grams at birth, 2665 grams on discharge from hospital
Length: 48 cm
Head Circumference: (remarkably small for a Briggs head!) 33.5cm
