The World, Meet Mark, Born 12/10/12!

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 for 24 hours.
  • Giving birth is an amazing experience, seriously. In a good way.
  • We are tired but very happy and grateful!
