11.28.15 Baby Leo from Scratch
Since I started Wisconsin from Scratch back in 2013, I’ve made a lot of awesome things from scratch. You’d think it would be hard to pick one of them to be the absolute best, and until recently, it definitely was. But then, not long ago, I made, without question, the best thing of all. This little guy.
I mean seriously, look at him!
Leo Everett Woolworth was born November 20th at 10:48am, weighing 7lbs, 5oz and measuring 20 inches. And I would be totally kidding if I said his birth was anything like I originally planned. I spent months mentally preparing for the whole childbirth process, only to find out at 37 weeks that this baby boy of ours was stubbornly stuck in breech position. After trying (unsuccessfully) pretty much everything we could think of to get him to flip head-down, we soon had to face the fact that this baby was going to be born via c-section.
Despite the fact that a planned c-section was not at all how I foresaw this whole birth thing going, everything went as smoothly as possible. I’ve been recovering well, and most importantly, we got a happy, healthy baby out of the whole deal! Which is really the only thing that matters anyway. And, really, we couldn’t be happier; we’re so in love with this little guy! All I can say is that baby Leo is, hands down, the best thing I’ve ever made from scratch.
