After a puzzling birth, I am so happy to share with you the arrival of our newest addition, Wesley!
He was born almost two weeks early and in a way that none of us expected. (Watch for his birth story to come soon!) His labor was by far the longest of my three with contractions starting Wednesday night and leading up to his birth on Saturday night. Wes certainly made us work to meet him but I’m so thankful and so very, very blessed to have such a healthy and beautiful baby boy to add to our family.
Born on March 10th, 2012 at 9:40 p.m.
7lbs 15 oz
21 1/4″ long
We came home from the hospital yesterday morning and have been relishing this quality family time to bond and get to know our new baby. Lucian and Warren were so excited to meet him and dote on him often.
I’ve bonded strongly with Wesley as I have with all my children and I find myself emotional and filled with so much love when I look at him or snuggle him close. This little guy has us all wrapped around his little finger. Right now I’m relishing these all too fleeting moments and trying to memorize the details that make up my favorite parts of this stage.
sweet newborn smell
curled up legs
tiny fingers and toes
and those soft little sounds as he sleeps
Because they leave much too soon.
I am one lucky mama.
