I had the baby 2 weeks early (which is why I haven't been on here much lately). It was a complete shock as my babies never come early! Craziness. My water broke late one night after a busy day of Christmas parties and a baby shower (just for him). We woke up Miss B to watch the kiddos and headed to the hospital around 1 am. He came at 11:30 am with a perfect delivery. I was very worried about delivery with the blood thinners I am on and I really wanted an epidural. I was supposed to be induced so we could control everything better, but it ended up working out just perfectly in spite of everything. I was able to get an epidural and it was seriously a wonderful experience. I had an exceptional nurse and doctor who were both angels and took great care of me.
So he is dreamy and the kids love him and fight over him. We are trying to adjust to the newborn sleeping schedule, but I think we are getting the hang of it...or just used to less sleep. We feel so blessed for this little miracle and to have him join our family during Christmas.
I took some photos of him at 6 days old. I actually tried the day before but he wasn't feeling his best, and I only got the Santa hat photo. The next day was much better and we got a few I really love. I must say it is quite difficult taking your own newborn's photos and I think I probably worked myself too hard, but I'm glad I got some to document his extreme sweetness.
