This family has grown by 2 feet!


Hey y'all it's Shawn doing a guest post for my sweet friend who is currently resting comfortably with her precious little boy in her arms.

Yep, Baby Boy {BB}, I'll let her reveal his name, made his arrival November 5, 2012, at 3:50am, 5 weeks early. He weighed a whopping 5 pounds 10 ounces and is perfectly healthy. Momma wasn't sure at first if she was peeing herself or if her water had broke, clearly she's not seen me wet my pants as many times as she claims if she had any doubts.

It was a somewhat fast delivery and she did it Wonder-Woman style...no epidural! BB was sent to NICU for observation but did so well that he was released after 8 hours to the regular nursery. If he continues to progress at this rate he'll be going home Wednesday!

Obviously IA will not be around today, and more than likely the rest of the month, but she will undoubtedly have her phone nearby so she'll be able to read your comments. I know she'd love to hear from everyone.

Momma was looking good, ready to meet her son. I'm not sure what's going on with this picture but I assure you she does not have chicken pocks! 

Seriously? She does not look like someone who just delivered a baby does she? Let's all hate her for just a minute for that.


He's an adorable little guy with a full head of hair and a big sister who already loves him to pieces.


I must say he is a beautiful baby and I cannot wait to meet him and share an ice cold, double tall, Captain and diet with his Momma!

Congratulation IA, M, and Emma, I am thrilled for you!

What wonderful news to see the newest member of IA's family to hit the scene! Seriously, IA looks fabulous with that whole face glowing thing she has going for her. Definite signs of her new mommy status. =D

Congrats! And you look ten times better than I did after my two; I looked like I'd been through hell!

Adriane said...

Awww...he looks like his Daddy! :) I think he was doing you a favor by being 5 weeks early. He knew you'd need a drink by Thanksgiving and wouldn't want to wait until Christmas.

So happy everything's going well and that he's so healthy! And as a Mommy who is 4 months into the 2-kid jouney, I can say this with experience...let the REAL FUN begin.

I am so happy and thrilled for you and your family!! He is SO adorable!! I LOVE that shot of Emma holding him - can't wait to see more pictures!

Oh, and Princess Nagger is a little disappointed he didn't wait another 10 days for his arrival to coincide with her birthday, but she says she forgives him. And you. ;)

OH MY GOODNESS!!! Congrats, Darlin'! I'm so excited for y'all! Sounds so much like my Kameryn. She was 5 1/2 weeks early, but SIX pounds! They took her to NICU for a few hours, but she was doing so well, they let her come home just a couple days later. Hope you're home with both your babies soon! Hugs and Smooches!

So so relieved that all is well with bb! Wow, 5 weeks early and almost 6 pounds? Can you imagine if he'd waited til his due date?! Bowling ball! Lol. He's beautiful, and I just love that full head of hair!
You're my hero, mrs no epi. I truly hope I can do the same in 6.5 months! :-) share your secrets!

No epidural? You are WAY more woman than me! Congratulations, so happy for you all!

VandyJ said...

See, having them early means they don't look all squished. He's darling and hey, at least this way he's far enough from Christmas to get good birthday gifts.
Congrats to all of you and enjoy the roller coaster that raising boys is.

Janette Johanson said...

SO thrilled for you and M & Big sister Emma! What a great addition and such a perfect name for a perfect boy! I am sure he wanted a leg up on the toy catalogs for christmas-- more time to mull over his choices.
