Last Monday I went in for my 40 week and 2 days doctor's appointment. Some high blood pressure got me a trip to the hospital to be induced. I was having some high blood pressure problems the last 2 weeks of the pregnancy and they decided since I was full term it was a good idea to induce labor. Less than 12 hours later, 11 minutes after midnight and 10 minutes of pushing, he was here.
All 7lbs, 14 oz and 21 inches of him. He is amazing.
Here is Hubby and I about an hour after he was born. I did not wake up that morning expecting to have a baby. I was actually thinking I would be pregnant another week! So this was a great surprise.
Well the greatest surprise was that we got another boy. I am overjoyed to have 2 boys. MATCHING OUTFITS!!!! Need I say more?? PB was so excited to meet him. He climbed right into my bed to see his baby.
He couldn't wait to hold him and love and squeeze him. It was the sweetest thing ever. The best part is the baby would open his eyes when he would hear PB's voice. It is definitely the voice he heard most when he was in my belly. PB never stops talking.
Hubby and I spent some time alone in the hospital with the baby, that was a nice treat.
We got to take him home on our 9 year wedding anniversary. What a great way to celebrate our anniversary!!
PB is so excited to be a big brother. He asks to hold him all the time and likes to help me keep him awake when I am nursing. PB gets me clean diapers and makes sure the dirty ones are secure in the bin. He watches over him when he is in the swing or bouncer. Every time the baby makes a noise, PB is quick to see what he is up to. He is incredibly proud to be a big brother and was thrilled to tell everyone his baby was born and it was a boy. The nurse gave us a footprint sheet to give to PB so he could bring it to school. I heard he showed everyone.
I have been doing really great. My recovery this time is much better than it was with PB. I actually am starting to feel a little normal. I have been enjoying my break from reality while my Mom takes PB to school and picks him up and Hubby does all the shopping. I haven't worried about one meal thanks to friends, my Mom and Hubby. All I do is nurse, snuggle and look at this sweet baby boy. It has been a real treat. I am going to enjoy this as long as possible. So you probably won't see anything from me on a regular basis. I am just loving being a mom so much right now. Squeezing my 2 boys at the same time might be the greatest thing in the world.
