Jesse Hakan Ricks

Jesse Hakan Ricks joined the world yesterday, May 26th, at 6:56 p.m. He weighs 6.5 lbs, and is 20 inches long. 

It was a bit of a strange labor in that we knew that Monday was the day since about 2:00 a.m., but the contractions were not regular enough to be considered “active labor.” We ended up coming home for several hours, and then by the time we went back, the little boy was well on his way. We were there for only two hours before he arrived.

Kira did an amazing job, with another successful VBAC with no medication. We are glad to be home, and hope to settle into a routine very soon.

Little Hakan was a champ, and latched on strong as soon as he could. He will likely take after his older brother and be a big lover of food.

More to come as our strength returns…
