It’s a BOY!

May 30, 2016

I never thought my baby would actually come before it’s due date. I never thought I would give birth to a baby without an epidural (more on that later). I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would be a mom to all boys nevertheless FOUR of them. But life is funny like that. Funny and wonderful. And to say that I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude would be an understatement – like saying it’s easy to change the sheets on the top bunk when you’re 9 months pregnant (which I actually contemplated doing moments before deciding that, yes, the contractions I was having were the real deal). And just a few hours later our baby boy was born. Every time I blink the chances of a tear rolling out are highly likely. Thank you all for your well wishes, your excitement, and for sticking with me through nine months of pregnancy talk and belly pictures. Meet our newest love….
