The Nursery

We decided to do a Dinosaur theme for the nursery. I found an awesome blanket on Etsy and we based the colour scheme on it. My parents sent us the furniture and I spent the time we were waiting for it finding all the other little touches. Here is how it turned out:

I have had Blogger open for the last 7 weeks intending to write my He's Here post. But it seems that every time I grab the laptop he needs something....I suppose that's the fun of a newborn.
Oh well! Thanks for your patience if you have been waiting for the announcement here!

And without further ado, here is Kieran Richard Latour!!!
After 37 hours of contractions we went to the hospital and after 3 monitored contractions there they did an emergency c-section. He was holding his umbilical cord in both hands behind his shoulders and was squeezing it during contractions, cutting off his oxygen supply. After a whirlwind of activity he arrived and started to cry right away. He was 6 lbs, 10 oz and 21.5" long. Born at 11:28pm on May 12, 2012, making him the perfect Mother's Day present (Mothers day was May 13th!)
After 3 days in the hospital we went home to our apartment to start life as a family. Both sets of grandparents came to visit and we were lucky enough to have Jon's Mom for 3 weeks. We are just starting to get into a bit of a rhythm now but Kieran certainly keeps us on our toes!
He is almost double his birth weight already- 12lbs 2 oz at last week's Dr appt. Today we get to celebrate Canada Day and see what he does when the fireworks are going off!!!
