Bunlet is…a sonlet!

He’s sleeping next to me (see Fig 1), and all is well. Bunlet was born according to plan on the morning of the 22nd, and weighed in at 7 lbs, 14 oz, causing my OB to say, Where were you hiding all that BABY? Because while he’s not big for a baby, he’s considerably larger than Bun Bun was with no visible difference in ME.

Fig. 1. Sweet baby boy bunny!

The Third Opening of My Uterus was as uneventful as the others, the hospital was a horrible place, MILK has arrived with a vengeance, Bun Bun has warily touched her brother’s toes, and lots of other commonplace, miraculous, perfect and beautiful things…that I will write about later. Thank you for your good wishes, my kind friends. They really did the trick.

    Congratulations! He is perfect and a wonder worthy of great admiration. That ear is a delicious nibble. Wishing a great eater and natural sleeper.

    And so the baby hoarder has one of each! Not very convincing hoarding, though, as I think top-notch hoarders tend to collect oodles of the same. Work on that.

    Welcome, sonlet!

    Congratulations Bunny! I’m so very happy for you!

  13. Hurrah! And he’s an adorable little Bunson (hmmm, maybe not…he’s not a laboratory burner…), scratch that, Sonbun, too.

  14. Congratulation, Bunny! He is perfect!
    Rest and enjoy every moment as much as you can.
    I am very happy for you. πŸ™‚

  15. Congratulations, Bunny!!! He’s just beautiful and apparently a master of disguise already, hiding himself away like that! Keep a close eye on that one! πŸ˜‰

  16. Cheese and rice a boy. Sheer delight. Many congratulations and massive amounts of love. Can’t wait to get to know him.

    August 27, 2012
  17. I am so thrilled for you – a boy!! What a sweet little monkey! And I can’t believe how much he looks like Bun Bun as a newborn! Congratulations Bunny!!

  19. Little guys are so much fun. Congratulations! He’s beautiful.

  20. Oh mama! You’ve got a baby boy bun. YEAH! Congrats on this wonderful arrival, to you and Mr. Bunny, and of course, sweet sister Bun Bun.

    August 27, 2012
  21. Oh congratulations! He is truly lovely (and as others have noted, looks a lot like his big sister). SO so wonderful.

    August 27, 2012
  22. How wonderful!!! A baby boy!!! So happy for all of you!

    August 27, 2012
  23. Aw, look at how cute he is – congratulations! I laughed when I saw your comment on my post… meh, those first few weeks there’s a lot of baby down-time, you need your “screens” to keep your sanity sometimes. Just don’t prop sonlet in a boppy and leave him in front of cnn or something while you sleep (can you imagine!?!) πŸ˜‰ Congrats again, he’s a beauty!

    August 27, 2012
  24. YAY! Boylet Bunlet! So cutelet!

    OMG Congrats to the Bunny family!!! I KNEW it was a sonlet; I’m a bit biased, but baby boys are fun! He is so delicious it makes me want one (seriously the link isn’t working, I keep clicking on the pic but can’t get to the “order one for immediate delivery”!)

    August 27, 2012
  26. Congratulations!

    Awwwww, a boy bunny! Super heartfelt congrats to the Bunny fam! XX

    August 27, 2012
  28. Hooray for Bunlet! And good job Bun Bun for touching his toes. I bet she’s two steps away from full-on sister love. And, most importantly, good job YOU in making it through the Third Opening. Once is enough, twice is too much, three times surely qualifies you for sainthood, or some kind of tasteful medallion.

    August 27, 2012
  29. Congratulations, Double Mama Bunny, Mr. Bunny, Bun Bun, and BEAUTIFUL BUNLET! So very glad I checked in after a long time. Beyond delighted for all of you. HOORAH!!! xoxo

  30. There he is! How absolutely wonderful, bunny. I am so happy you have the family you so longed for.

    Welcome, welcome, little fellow. Be well, all four.

    August 28, 2012
  31. Congrats! He is gorgeous!

  32. Awwww, he’s beautiful. I’m so glad to hear that he is here, and that things are well. Sending you fortitude for sleepless nights to come:)

    (One day, give us another pie chart for expectations vs. stark reality…I’m curious how this pans out with #2).

    • It’s in the envelope–to be opened in six months…

      August 28, 2012
