Photos from Lex's Birth [Aug. 24th, 2008|09:29 am]

Sharon struggling through labour.

Sharon in the bath. The warm water did a good job of reducing her discomfort, but she got chilled very quickly, which exhausted her far more than the labour had been.

Another bath photo, obviously suffering...

A nice reflective shot.

Sharon and Lex's first feed. Took him about an hour to find the nipple and latch on. These days they recommend letting the baby find the breast on it's own, and attach in its own time. Causes less problems, in most cases.

One of a sequence of shots, all of which are nice.

God life is hard!

And for all those other mum's out there who feel a bit ripped off that Shaz had a comparitively easy run, a shot of Sharon straight after the birth in which she looks a bit pale and drained. She did better than most, but it still knocked the stuffing out of her.

Yeah, I know there was a shot of me in there, but surely I'm not that ugly? *winks*

I guess we know who Lex takes after, then?

Yay! Congratulations.

Both of our kids were born with the only pain relief being gas, and Calli used back massage for the first one as her primary pain relief and for the second one it was chanting, so it's fascinating reading how other people got through.

You realise the fun has only just started? (Mr 3year old is currently sick in front of the telly and Mr 9month old is trying to pull himself up on things)

Actually, I think Sharon looks beautiful in that last photo. A happy, relieved and triumphant sort of beauty. (Mind you, Lex looks less than pleased to leave the everything-on-tap part of his life behind - a displeasure which the previous photos all confirm was rather short-lived!)

Love to you all.

Oh she looks great, but you can she's tired, whereas I don't think that comes through anywhere near as strongly in the other photos.

As for Lex, he'll just have to get used to disappointment - I am his father, after all :)

Thank you :)

Des says "Lex (in the last photo) looks like me every morning when I get kicked out of bed"

Lex's expression is very much "WTF? It's cold! It's dry! What is all this 'light' stuff?"

*Drhoz looks worried about Des's muttering about hiding the condoms*

Oh gosh, how special! He's just beautiful! And Sharon looks way more composed than a LOT of mothers I've seen, I'm terribly impressed!!!

My love and congratulations to the both of you! And Lex is also lucky for getting such a special couple for parents! What a blessed family you are!
