Welcome to this world Sebastian Victor Sundin. You rolled in on a rare 8-digit palindrome day 11-02-2011, for which I am grateful. It’s important to establish nerd cred early. You also made it very clear that you would be challenging your tall father (and even taller uncle Keith) in the size department.
21.5 inches long, a 15 inch head, and a whopping 10 pounds, 11 ounces. Well played sir. Well played.
You were four days overdue so Ginette went to the hospital to make sure all was well. It turns out the amniotic fluid level was low so it was recommended to jumpstart the process with a little Pitocin. Labor started around 5pm and you popped out at a little over 10 hours later at 3:12am. Suffice to say I’m writing this with precisely zero sleep.
Dad (me) is especially thankful that your Mom was helped through the process by four amazing friends/private doulas who stayed with us through the ENTIRE process. It was clear the nurses had never seen anything like it. Several of them kept making excuses to come hang out in our room since we were the “cool kids” on the Labor and Delivery floor.
Did I mention Ginette delivered naturally with no anesthesia?
Again, welcome to this world baby Sebastian. Mom, dad, big sister Dayla, and a bevy of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends are so happy to meet you.
