Its A Boy!

Okay, as you can probably guess, the baby is here!

And he has been here for a little while now; 2 months and 20 days to be exact!

 

The Babe: arrived via c-section on August 14 at 12:25PM. He came in weighing 7lbs 10oz and 21 inches long. He was literally the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. I was put under so I did not get to meet him right away. I am not sure what his very first cry sounded like but I bet it was beautiful. He is the sweetest little boy, much like Jake.

The Mom: I am doing great! My recovery went really smooth and I was not in much pain at all. I was actually able to comfortably walk before leaving the hospital. I was even able to quit my pain meds before the prescription even ran out. S/o to my amazing DR.

The Dad: Jake has been a real trooper during this whole entire process. He is the best dad anyone could ever ask for. He stays up late after working long shifts. He makes bottles in the middle of the night. He changes tons of diapers. He does it all, lol.

The Life: I would actually say were killing it. No, really. We are very lucky this little guy sleeps through the night and rarely cries. He is the best! Whenever we go to appointments, the staff always comment on how great we look, how organized we are, and how intuitive we have been. They always tell us they have never seen new parents handling things the way we do. This makes me really happy b/c I believe it. But it really is b/c we have the best baby, so he makes everything very easy for us.

Since I have been away for so long, I have decided to do weekly posts on various topics. I just want to share some things I am thankful for, some things we are up to, etc. Now, although I have decided, it does not mean it will happen. But I am going to try extra hard to make it happen. 🙂

How’s Baby Anyway?!

Believe it or not, we are 54 very short days from meeting this little bundle of joy!

Baby:

Everything is going and great and progressing right along. We decided to hold off on posting until we had more very cute pics to share! The good news is, we just had an appointment this week, therefore, we do have new pics to share!

A little profile of this sweet kid. 

 

We found out this little chunker is measuring 10 days ahead of schedule. (Coming in at a whopping 4 lbs!) And the little one is already head down. We meet with the DR again next week for another routine visit. Since we are nearing the end of this portion of our journey, our visits will become more frequent.

Mama and Papa:

Jake and I are doing great, just wrapping up things around the house and at work, as we prepare to welcome the little one. We have bought all the baby necessities and essentials. Now we just need to start packing our bags, install the carseat, wash the clothes, and sterilize the bottles.

We have completed our baby care class and started our weekly birthing classes, which have been very informative. We have narrowed down the list of potential baby names.

We have even found out the gender! (Well… Jake has.)
