After almost 10 months of speculation about which sex would gain majority in our household…Ben and I would like to introduce you to our son, Wyatt Ruff Hellickson!
At 1:26 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, he made his debut into our world — all 6 pounds, 9 ounces and 20.5 inches of him.
Life with a newborn (now that we’re nearly one week in) has been amazing, exhausting, awesome, exhilarating, rewarding, frustrating, terrifying, thrilling — basically so many emotions stirring at once that sometimes I feel like I can’t even handle it.
To be fair, it could have a little something to do with all the postpartum hormones coursing through my body, as well.
His full birth story will come once we get our feet a little more squarely underneath us. And maybe once I’m able to type the words without openly weeping when thinking about how lucky we are to have this little man in our lives…
