On March 4th, 2009, my son Jack Abrevaya Heller was born. He's a Pisces with a Cancer rising and is expected to be very sensitive. He has a moon in Gemini like his father.
He's awesome, except for the marathon crying sessions in the middle of the night. Thankfully, he has a patient mother.
Harley was amazing during the birth. Really amazing. I could not have done what she did, and I'll always admire her for that.
The expensive OBGYN? Worth the money. He made it look easy, and it was a beautiful experience. But honestly, I didn't have a say in this no matter what. Pregnant women usually get their way.
The doula to help Harley through natural childbirth? You f*cking betcha. Men should never take a leadership role when helping women through labor. We do not understand their state of mind or have the ability to guide them through it. If we didn't have Vicki, well I don't know what we would have done.
The private hospital room for 2 nigths? Worth every penny. At night, we had some great time together with the baby and just the 2 of us. During the day, we were surrounded by friends and family. Wouldn't trade that for anything.
Jack, we love you! And do yourself a favor: let your big sistet be the boss. It'll happen whether you want it to or not.
