Labor was pretty easy. I got an epidural around 12....stopped working around 1:30. But that was fine because it made pushing so much easier. I think I pushed 3 times and I was ready. Dr. Wiggs got there and I pushed 2 times and he was here. That was just perfect for me :)
I can't express how grateful and blessed we are to now have a healthy baby boy to love on and raise. I find no greater joy than to spend these times with my husband and boys. Jacob is really a good baby. I am nursing so he still wakes up 1-2 times a night to feed but only for 5 minutes and he is back to sleep. Zachary just LOVES him!! He has been the best big brother. Over heard him this week talking to Jacob telling him how much he would miss him at school. I think Jacob gets about 100 kisses or more a day. Half from Zachary :) Anyway, here are a few pictures of the big day!
Thanks to everyone for thinking about us and the prayers up to this day. We are so blessed with amazing friends and family. Love each of you guys more than you know.
Here we go. The morning of the induction!! Feeling great and ready to meet my little man. Snuggle time with Z!!
Last family pic of 3!!
So sweet!!! First time to really see brother. Just loved this special time with my boys!!
My new family of 4!!! I must say...I am one lucky woman to have all these good looking men in my life. Especially my wonderful husband Brett!! Love you so much!!
Sweet big brother kisses!! Hasn't stopped yet :)
We were able to keep Jacob with us the entire time. He did leave us for 20 minutes to get a circumcision. Our nurse Jennifer transitioned him and gave the shots in the room with us. And he stayed with us at night. What can I say....I didn't want to give him up. We had waited to see this fellow for too long.
Brett and his "JC" Pretty much a battle of who gets to hold him!
Ready to go home with my little man!!
Our wonderful Doctor. Since we were going every week to see him for about 3 months we got really close to this guy!! Thanks Dr. Wiggs for everything.
Time to go home!!
First night at home and Zachary had to show him the bunk beds. He was telling him how much fun it will be when he gets a little bigger. So sweet.
Getting our first bath!!
Sweet night night time!! Had to sing twinkle twinkle to him before he went to bed :)
For all those who didn't know..... I had a few dreams early on about having this little boy that had a head full of dark brown hair and chubby cheecks that looked just like Brett. It was the same boy every time I had this dream. It was before we even knew what we were having. I kept telling everyone I knew it would be a boy and that I had already fallen in love with him because he looked just like his daddy. Well...when he came out looking just like my dream and his daddy....I was pretty excited.
