Introducing Baby #2, Skipper!

Grant Hobbs Davidhizar was born December 21, 2011 at 7:24 am after about 15 hours of labor. I had him naturally (well except for one shot of morphine) which was NOT the plan. Apparently, anesthesiologists in these parts take their merry time in getting to you after you request an epidural (3.5 hrs to be exact). This was after they had sent me home once in active labor. We went back when my water broke at home. It was pretty horrible, something I never want to do again, but of course it was worth it to get this little one. 

He was 7 lbs, 7 oz., exact same as Keaton, and 20.25 in. long. He came out pink & screaming & hungry. He nursed great right away. So far I can tell he is stronger & more alert than Keaton was. Physical recovery for me was much better, but I had insomnia & some pretty serious baby blues the first couple of weeks.


  1. He's beautiful! Congrats!!!! Your birth story sounds a bit like my second, as well. That's why I decided to go with a natural water birth at a birthing center for our third. Hope you're sleeping better.

    1. That is so funny, because I'm thinking the opposite route with my next- scheduled C-section! lol, not really, but I'm tempted! ;) Good for you though!!
