A photo blog for friends and family far and near that are interested in watching our boy grow.
Thanks Cindy for the sweet little boy quilt (and the food, and the pie and the baby pressies... you've really spoiled us - and the boy!)

20 days post c-section and I am finding that day by day it's much easier to get around and get stuff done. I hate that I had to have a c-section - it's a weird statistic that I didn't want to be part of - but seeing as there was no other way to get my baby to come out safe and sound, it was totally, totally worth it. I love watching him stretch with all his little boy might.
One of the nice things about getting around easier - besides being able to take care of baby boy :) myself - is having the energy to start taking pictures again.

sweet baby feet

Baby boy is now 19 days old. Granny left today :( we are going to miss her very much. It's very hard to be so far from loved ones.

On the needles

Baby boy is eating lots and growing fast. He's such a good baby (so far anyway!) very easy going, and loves a good snuggle. He's been 'helping' me complete UFO's (like this little doll size sweater) the pattern for it can be found at The Purl Bee - it's an easy cute pattern. I (hopefully) am on the mend - it's almost been a whole day with no bleeding from the c-section stitches. I can't wait to get out of the house more with this cute little fella.

12 days of Thanks Giving

This has been the craziest 2 weeks of my life.
The most exciting and happiest - by far - but the craziest too.
I can honestly say I don't mind the diapers, middle of the night feedings or the crying - not that there's much crying...mostly just me crying... hormones, ya know.
I can live without c-section aftermath... the popped stitches, gushing blood, hospital visits. It is all worth it, but I still don't have to like it.
Yesterday was spent with family enjoying a fine turkey dinner and taking in the beautiful fall day with Baby. He is over 'the jaundice' and is starting to grow good now. He is such a lovable little fella.

Happy Birthday Andrew

Today is my baby's due date. October 8.
But he didn't quite make that date, he arrived 9 days early. I am thankful that he is safe and sound and at the end of my life I will always be thankful that I got to have 9 extra days with him :)
We finally named him:
Though I can't stop calling him baby boy.
We are as most (if not all) new parents are:
tired, exhausted, happy, and overwhelmed.
We are grateful to those around us that are so supportive. As I type this, at 5:29am I have freshly fed sleeping baby nestled against me, and I am enjoying homemade chicken corn chowder soup - thanks Cindy. With our little Bella Dog sleeping/keeping watch at my feet.
a perfect moment in my life.

My water broke 10 days before my due date.
An interesting experience.
it was 2:30 am.
I was at home - good.
I was alone - not so good.
Well, alone sort of - I had Bella there.
Bella the dog.
I get myself together,
and off the 3 of us (me, baby belly and bella) go
I didn't have time to take Bella the dog anywhere, so we all went together - I drove.
after 3.5 hours of calling - I finally got baby daddy on the phone at his work. Got Bella to the doggy sitters and after 42.5 hours, much drama, dropping heart rates and an emergency C/Section... here is the much awaited baby boy.
So much for an October baby.
September is good too :)
we are very tired, but very very happy
