Early Delivery...

My c-section wasn't schedule for another week, but here he is.  
Born yesterday via planned (but early) c-section.

So far he's been an sweet, adorable, and pleasant baby boy.

We're looking forward to getting to know him better in the coming day, weeks, and years.

We still need to finish deciding on a name...but we'll have that figured out before we leave the hospital tomorrow.

The other kids got to come meet him today.  Sweet Pea was the one who climbed up on the bed first, so she got to hold him first. 



She brought the pillow she'd made for him and made sure he used it.

She also was really fascinated (maybe a little too fascinated) by this little nose.

Firecracker was anxious for her turn.  She's going to be a big help watching out for him.  (And in other big news of the week, she lost her first top front tooth.
And believe it or not Little Brother (who is really more of a Big Brother now) was more interested in going to play in the play house in the waiting area than he was in doing much with the baby.  We did manage to get him into this picture.


Let me just say that I am feeling SO much better than I did with my last c-section.  I'm sure it has something to do with not going through 3 days of labor and exhaustion before this c-section.  As long as everything continues to go well, I should be going home tomorrow where I'll have Hubby and my mom-in-law to help with the kids and things around the house.

Stay tuned on Friday to find out what will be going on with my blog in the next few weeks while I'm recovering.
