We're Home!

Oh, the birth story this time around is quite different from my the birth story of my first. Thank you for all the wonderful thoughts and well wishes. I can't believe I'm not pregnant anymore, it feels so weird! In a good way of course. So it wasn't quite the labor and delivery I had in mind, but the coming home part was nothing short of a miracle. I have lots to write, but my chotch hurts and I'm beat. But here are pictures from the weekend.

So here's what three hours of pushing looks like. Yes three hours. He didn't get the memo that the second is supposed to be easier. Here he is: Ryan James, 7 lbs. 8 oz.
Poops meeting his baby brother and loving him.

A sleepy boy.

Going home day.

Does life get any better than this really?

Whoops, I've been totally out of the loop. Congratulations! Hope the new baby is just as much a joy as the older one. And that he sleeps much better. :)

Congratulations for new baby...I know how it feels when you are not pregnant anymore. It is always a joy having a baby at home but giving birth is painful at the same time but whatever it is worth all the pain. Good luck
