Just arrived back from the hospital with our new little baby, Magnus Antonio Olson, born August 20 and entering this world at 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our little "Fuzzy" turned out to be a boy, just like Ana was predicting, and we are both so happy to have this little guy in our lives. It looks as if all the grandparents and great grandparents are arriving tomorrow to meet him so he's sure to have a very busy day absorbing all that love and attention.
All I can say is, what a miracle! It's hard to describe the birthing experience (as the person saying "push, push!" at least!) but picture his entrance into the world: once the head appeared, the body followed very quickly and in an instant this little baby was lying on the bed with his arms spread wide, head back and eyes wide open looking up at us as if to say "Here I am!!"
The weeks ahead are sure to be a big learning experience for all three of us.
