Jayne came home from the hospital today. He was born at 8:22 p.m. on September 1st. He was 8 pounds 1 ounce and 20 inches long. The labor was 15 hours and pushing was 22 minutes after that. I did the whole thing naturally, no drugs at all. Adam was a wonderful coach. I never would have made it through without him. Jayne is a beautiful, sweet, little boy. I couldn't be happier with the end result. The first picture is right after I gave birth and they put him on top of me. #2 is our little family shortly after delivery. Next is a close up of Jayne smiling in his sleep in his bed. The last 2 are of Jayne getting ready to go home.
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
