He's Here!

So sorry that I haven't had time to update my blog. I've been a wee bit busy.

Jonah Benjamin was born at 5:26PM on March 26th. He was 7 lbs 3 oz and 20 1/2 inches long.

He is an adorable little baby. We can't get enough of him.

Sorry that I don't have any photos loaded on my computer yet to share. You'll just have to take my word for now that he is beautiful.

We are still in the hospital. He had been really healthy and well, then he developed jaundice. They chose to treat him under the bili lights for a day. We should be able to come home tonight as long as his numbers stay down. So far so good. Just seeing how he's doing out of the lights now. I'm glad he's back in a room with me now. We don't foresee any problems and should leave this afternoon with him.

I had a great delivery and can't wait to share about it. I was in a long labor, but when he decided to come...boy did he! It was a wild and crazy ride...that my OB didn't make it to!

But that's for another time. I'm feeling great and doing well. I haven't had any problems...unless you count my swollen stumps that I used to call feet/legs. Geesh!

That's the update for now. I'm sure I'll have more photos and things to share as we go.

MIA - baby prep

38 weeks

My blog has taken a back seat these past few months. But I'm not officially MIA (missing in action) yet. I'm still around, and for today still pregnant.

I have been feeling pretty well, but these last few months I think I'm in full-out nesting mode. It's been fun getting ready for baby, although my blogging obligations have fallen to the side for now. I am due next week, March 28th. I'm not sure at this point that I'll make it to my due date. A few minor things have happened in the last week that make me think my doctors will suggest induction soon. Only time will tell.

We're very excited and ready for baby's arrival. We just can't wait to meet him and kiss his little cheeks. :)

Thanks for hanging in there with me. I hope to be back to my normal reviews & awesome giveaways very soon! And of course I'll keep you updated and introduce you to our little one when he makes his arrival.
