James Ethan

I always wanted to be a mommy to three boys.

And last Saturday, that dream came true.

James Ethan was born via c-section at 8:37 AM, Saturday, May 19, 2012.  He weighed 6 lbs., 7 oz., and was 20” long.  Like his sister, he spent his first day in the NICU on oxygen and a feeding tube, but was back in my arms Sunday.

For my own documentation, I’ll come back in another post and fill in the gaps about the c-section and our hospital stay and my recovery.   I just needed to get his arrival up on the blog before any more days passed.  Sometimes, I forget not everyone I know and love is on Facebook (Hi, Kendra!), so many of you haven’t heard this news, let alone have seen the adorableness that is my fourthborn.

Thus far, he is my most mellow baby; is nursing like a champ (huge surprise there!); and has already stolen my heart in a way that I seriously did not expect.

I may not be on fb, but I did get the honor of a text =).

He is stunning. Seriously beautiful.

I'm praying for you and your recovery! I can't wait to hear what Seth and Erin think of him!!

I'm suppressing the urge to call or text you often...giving my gift of timing it JUST RIGHT with your heading off to bed =).

Love you.

Congratulations!!! So glad he only had to spend a day in the NICU and he's back in your arms. I giggled at the shout out to my sister. I confess, I was getting curious with no further update and sent her a text yesterday asking how you were and if baby had been born. Looking forward to seeing family pictures, but for now, just rest and enjoy your new precious baby.
