He has arrived!

He was 2 weeks early and caught us a bit off guard, and I am posting this almost 5weeks later!
Michael Anthony Dagostino was born on December 13 at 11:53am. He weighed 7 lbs, 2 oz, and was 19.25 inches long. He is the most amazing baby! He sleeps well, eats well, and is all smiles already!

I had a relatively easy labor and delivery - about 13 hours of labor and only about 15 minutes of pushing and he was here. A nice end to a very easy pregnancy - hopefully I will be just as lucky with subsequent children! We arrived home two days after delivery and I had about 4 days off before I started back to work. Tonight marks my last full day of work until the end of March. As much as I love my job, I am so happy to be able to have some Mommy and baby time, finally!
Michael is truly a joy to have and we are so grateful to have such a wonderful addition to our family. My husband is over the moon and absolutely in love with his new buddy!
Will post more soon, when things calm down a bit here.
