Anthony Luis Ruvalcaba was born at 12:36pm June 16, 2010. Labor was interesting…I went from 5cm to 10cm in 30 minutes, and he came out in one contraction – I didn’t feel it because the epidural went awry. The needle went too far, and punctured my spinal column which later gave me a fun headache. How did it go away? They took a whole bunch of blood, and put it back in my spine (another epidural) to fill in the hole. But now everyone is healthy; Anthony doesn’t have any problems with his platelets, and he eats just fine…he’s a bit of a piggy to be honest.
Here are pictures of my 3 week old Anthony and my almost-two year old Flora.
