Baby Oliver

I finally had my very sweet baby boy Sunday march 12th (5 days later than expected). His name is Oliver Richard Keeves and he was 8 lbs 5.5 oz, and 22 inches long at birth. With support of Rich, the UCLA midwives and my doula Katie, I managed to deliver by totally natural childbirth with no epidural or even an IV. Early labor began at about 3:45 am. With all the great support, I stayed to labor at home as long as possible and arrived at the hospital at 11:30 am in active labor. By just shortly after 3 pm I was told it was time to start the pushing phase and Oliver arrived on the scene at 3:18pm. He came out with his hand next to his head and I was told that my pushing phase was uncharacteristically short. Other than his needing a little extra suction after the short transition, there were no complications and he is the picture of a healthy little angel baby. We are home now and doing great adjusting to the new life. Oliver is a lettle cuddle bug and loves to be held. He rarely cries and is now sleeping in periods of 3 to 4 hours (which to a new momma is a lot!) I'll post pics soon!

the peach?

Not to thrilling a result but here it is. (From (e:robin)'s link)

The Peach
Random Gentle Love Master (RGLMf)


Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach.

For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you're surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don't get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it.


Your exact opposite:
The Nymph

Deliberate Brutal Sex Dreamer

You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you're becoming more selective about long-term love. It's getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who's in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him.

Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you. But not overly intense.

the waiting game

I'm still waiting for baby to arrive, i'm more excited than nervous but I am getting anxious that its now 2 days past the due date. I guess a little late is not that big of a deal in first-time-mama-land but for some reason I had it in my head that baby was going to be early so now I feel like it's really late. I can't wait to meet the little one!
