January 6th 2013, at 10:43am we welcomed another handsome baby boy into our family. Being a scheduled birth we had everything planned out, so there was no chaos, no crazy birth story, it was a very calm wonderful experience.
I got checked in, all prepped and the only real issue was the anesthesiologist having to place the spinal twice, yes TWICE. That was no fun, but of course it was worth it when we met him.....
Then we were sent to our room. It was cozy, small and dimly lit, the perfect location for us to bond with our new little one for the next few days.
Then when his temp was back up after bathing him, they brought in Joshua. By the time he arrived in the room, Matthew, Lilly and my parents were minutes away from arriving. I was of course excited to introduce the kids to their new brother.
Matthew was a little reluctant at first, but Lilly, went into big sister mode right away. She actually was the one to feed him his first bottle. She is so loving and sweet with him.
As far as postpartum, I am feeling really great, and having a hard time reminding myself to take it easy. I am enjoying the help/company of family, but am also looking forward to settling back into a routine.
