Baby E is healthy, beautiful and we are doing well. He was born one week ago- just now finding the time to sit down and write. Repeat c-section went well.. so far a much easier recovery than laboring for 24+ hrs first. Nursing is going well so far. Sleep deprivation and managing an active toddler who is adjusting/is especially needy right now are the biggest challenges.
It took a few days for reality to set in that he is really here. That he is ours. That we have the family we always dreamed of, minus our angel(s) who lives in our hearts. He resembles his older brother toddler C, and looks a lot like my baby picture. I can't wait to watch him grow and learn more about his personality. In the meantime, I am enjoying every moment that I get to snuggle him in my arms.
I am so incredibly grateful.
