2 Weeks Old

Baby Henry is 2 weeks old today. Hard to image, my husband was racing me to the Hospital at 3, in the morning, 2 weeks ago to have a baby we had been waiting for so long to arrive. I went into labor at 1:45 a.m. and had him at 3:43 a.m. Not Bad!! When he was finally ready to come he made a speedy appearance.

I am recovering better than expected. I have been pampered, spoiled and coddled by my Mom, family, friends and neighbors and it has made all the difference. I knew the third time around would be harder and more challenging than ever and really feel blessed and loved by those around me who have felt inspired to help. Thank You.

My boys have been so adorable. They just love on him all day. Because we hadn't decided on a name and called him Baby for a long nine months, the name has kinda stuck and it is sweet to hear the boys call him Baby.

Thank You everyone for you well wishes and happy Autumn.

Hardware Halloween

Normally we aren't decorating our pumpkins this early in the Halloween season, but my 8 year old was invited to a Halloween Party over Fall Break (no school) and came home from the party with a carved pumpkin. While he was gone, my husband had been working on a project (what a surprise!) and had every screw, nail, bolt and other miscellaneous hardware(s) all over the kitchen table. This got my 8 year thinking and he wanted to add a few screws and bolts to his pumpkin. Make his pumpkin alittle more intense. I was a little surprised by husband obliged, other than each pumpkin having about $10 in hardware, it was really fun to see his creative juices flowing.

Little brother had to get in on the action as well. He calls his pumpkin a "mechanical spider". Both boys were intensely working for a good two hours on their masterpieces.

Baby Henry

Baby Henry arrived at 3:43 a.m. weighing 9 pounds 2.9 oz. He was 19 inches long and 1 week late. I couldn't have asked for a better delivery and more wonderful Attentive Husband, Dedicated Nurses and Unwavering Midwife helping to bring little Henry into the world on October 5th 2010. Going unmediated for the second time was an intense, challenging experience but I wouldn't have it any other way. Becoming a Mother for the third time is an unforgettable experience, but just in case I forgot anything I had my (amazingly talented friend/neighbor) Kimberly photographing every Birth Moment. Thanks Everyone!
