Maternity Leave

I would say I am sorry for my lack of posts for the past few weeks -- but I can't. I have been having way too much fun playing with my mom and, as of Cinco de Mayo, with my new baby boy! He is adorable. We are totally in love. My husband finished his finals Wednesday and, for medical reasons, I was induced Thursday. Everything went very well and both of us are doing great!


This picture is from his first car ride - coming home! 

And for those who like stats, yes, he is a big boy - 9 lbs 8 oz at birth, is now over 10 lbs! He is already really into eating! The cheeks are just getting cuter!

Congratulations Sarah! He's beautiful! I'm glad you're both doing well. Take your time...that's what I've been doing. It goes way to fast not to enjoy every minute.

Amid my own laboring and new motherhood, I forgot to check on you! He's awesome. I can't believe his size; 2 pounds more than Baby J was. It just proves what I already suspected: you're Wonder Woman.

Congratulations. :)

Cindy said...

So happy for you. What a sweet little guy. Max weighed about the same, he is still a big, strong boy--at 22!
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
