|A pirate from birth.|
Here's our little tapatio (that's what you call someone born in Guadalajara) - Jaroslav Aleksandr Cortez! He was born on December 7th, weighing 7 pounds, 12 ounces and 21 inches long. We are completely and utterly enamored. So far, he's such a tranquilo little guy and a born snuggler that I'm not sure how we got so lucky. Genetics, who knew?
I would also like to apologize for not posting anything sooner, but first he was two weeks late. Then, I went through three days of on again, off again labor, and finally after going through EVERY single stage of labor including beginning the pushing part, we had to have a Caesarean section. Needless to say, it was traumatic. I did a lot of crying and was an absolute wreck for several days.
Of course, we now have a beautiful baby boy, and today was the first day that Vlad didn't have to set me down on the toilet. So things are looking up.
