A Post Foetry Baby!

An important announcement by team member Matt:

Jonas was born [January 2] in the midwife center in Pittsburgh, so we were in and out in less than 12 hours.

Christy is doing pretty well, but wishes she didn't have to go through any recovery at all (she was in denial the first few days and pushed herself a little too much).

The day after he was born, Jonas weighed 7 lbs. 4 ounces at the pediatrician and five days later was up to 7 lbs. 11 ounces. So he is eating well and gaining weight. His nights have been pretty good so far, too. Christy is breastfeeding, so it's been easy on me.

[Big brother] Leo continues to like his new brother and has shown no resentment or jealousy. We've had to tell him not to jump on the bed next to Jonas a number of times. That's about it. He's been appropriately gentle and very affectionate.

I'm back at work as of today (getting caught up). Haven't been able to do any writing for weeks . . . but hopefully that will change with going back to work (I never get a chance to write when I'm at home) Hope you are all well.
