Family of 4

On April 5, 2013 this awesome little guy decided to join us.
He is absolute perfection. Born at 7:53pm, he weighed 8lbs 13oz (1 ounce shy of big sister....so much for the doctors' predictions of a giant baby) and was 20.75 inches tall. After all of the worry of him being monstrous...he was smaller than Carson. When he first came out the doctor guessed that he weighed 10.6 pounds. I looked at him and just thought "there's no way, he looks exactly like Carson's size." Guess who was right on that one?

Regardless of how big or small he is, I am absolutely in love. We are an over-the-moon-happy family of 4 now and life couldn't be sweeter. I've been at home with him this whole time and this upcoming week is my last week of doing that. I do get to take him with me to work, but it's just not going to be the same as being able to lay around with him and just stare at him. I am grateful that the job I have allows me to bring him with me though. I definitely understand what a privilege it is.

Here are a few more photos of our hospital stay:





Playing the waiting game....I literally was texting everyone up until I started pushing.
Thank you epidural, you truly are magical...couldn't have done it without you.


 

He's here!





My absolute favorite picture of the two of them thus far:
