Mark Floyd, Ottawa, October 14 2012

I am no longer pregnant… and it’s a boy!

Mark was born in Ottawa on October 12, 2012 at 11:04 a.m. I was exactly 38 weeks pregnant when the labour started. Labour was unexpected, fast and easy (no, really!). I’ll promise, I’ll share my non-scary non-gory labour and birth story later on.

Random facts:

  • October 11 is Feng’s birthday… giving birth saved me a present!
  • Mark’s middle name is “Floyd”.
  • Baby Mark’s cry sounds like “wo e” (我饿), “I’m hungry” in Chinese.
  • He loves peeing on people.
  • He is obviously the most perfect baby ever.
  • We are already back home from the hospital, we only stayed there 24 hours.
  • Giving birth is an amazing experience, seriously. In a good way.
  • We are tired but very happy and grateful!

  1. Oh Zhu! How sad I feel to miss the party! Congratulations and more congratulations for Mark, he’s (obviously) very beautiful and I’m sure all his cries are very cute as well. Lots of hugs and wishes to both of you!

  2. Oh mon Dieu, j’ai raté ça!! En même temps j’étais dans l’avion et après j’étais pognée avec le jetlag :/

    Toutes mes félicitations Zhu pour le petit Mark! 🙂 Il est trop mignon, je vais aller voir les photos! 🙂

    Gros bisous! 🙂
