Carlo means full-grown

Family all Home
Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
Well, here we are. We're home after an amazing birth adventure. Our new guy is named Carlo, which literally means full-grown. This name wasn't on our list and just came to my husband at the hospital. When I got home I looked it up and laughed because Carlo was 11 lbs 2 oz, pretty full-grown for a newborn! His arm got broken on the way out, but it's already healing. Now onto the adventure of a two-kid home.

Congratulations! It sounds like it was an adventure. Glad he's healing so quickly-baby's get better powers are amazing. Good luck with the next few months!

Oh, I'm so happy for you. I've been checking in and thinking that you were probably with a new babe by now. That's such a great family picture.

Welcome to Carlo!!! Hope his arm is fine in no time.
My first baby was 11'2"..24 inches long. One good thing about the big ones...they are sturdy and hold themselves very well as a newborn.
Enjoy these days.

Delurking to say Congratulations! My third child broke his "wing" (left clavicle) on "the way out of Mum" too! They heal amazingly fast! He's a rowdy rough and tumble 9 year old now, it certainly hasn't slowed him down any. Let the wild rumpus begin...

Wow, that is a big baby! :) My grandma told me when I had my baby (who was not quite as large as yours, but still on the hefty side) that big babies are more sturdy! :) Congratulations! You should be a proud momma!
