What's new with you?

Well, quite a bit is new around here...

please meet Joseph Edward!

Born October 11th, 8:24 pm, 8 lbs. 4 oz., 19.5 inches long.

I know it's been over a week already, but the recovery has been a slow process. Good news is that I successfully had my VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)! One of the bonuses about that was supposed to be a quicker recovery...hmmm, not so sure about that. It's all quite a mess down there. I won't horrify you with the details, but believe me, no fun.

I feel so blessed to have given birth while my mother was visiting. She and Sam had alot of fun while I was busy being pregnant, then giving birth, then recovering. Don't know what we would have done without her. Now we're equally blessed to have Jay's folks here to help out. We are so lucky to have these two healthy little boys and such a wonderful and supportive family.

I'll be following up with some tidbits from the trials and tribulations, but for now we are reveling in the bliss of this new little angel.

And he sleeps! Like alot. Thank God.
