Adam's Arrival



Well, It's been quite awhile since I've updated on how we're doing here. I'm hoping to do a little better now that things have slowed down a bit. Anyway, we've had our baby boy! He was born at home on September 2nd @ 7AM weight 10lbs and 7 ounces, 23 1/2 inches long. I couldn't have asked for a better labor and delivery.. my check has been cashed. =o) We were as surprised as everyone else at his size, but for being as long as he is..he isn't too chunky and still has those little chicken legs that Judah and Addie had.

We were expecting another Leo and got a Virgo instead. =o) He came a week and one day past his second due date of Aug 25th. This was probably the most emotional pregnancy I've had, and I'm so glad Joe has been so patient with my tearful breakdowns. ;o)

Anyway, Adam is two and a half weeks old today. We are working on sleeping better at night, but I couldn't ask for a sweeter baby. He's happy to sit quietly in his swing and watch his siblings playing or lie happily in our arms. Addie and Judah have been great with him and every now and then I'll see Judah give him a little kiss and talk with him or Addie patting his head.

Several times a day I'll look down and catch him smiling. He's such a sweetheart. We're so happy and blessed that he is finally here with us... and I think he's happy too!

Jo, I was surprised too about his smiling, he does it a lot especially when you are talking to him. =o) He's probably 12lbs already! His 3 months clothes are fitting right now and some of his 6 month clothes are too!
Krista, I just realized.. I'm sure your husband likes his name. ;o)
Thank you Sha, we think so too! =o)
