7 hours was SOOOO much nicer ;-)

April 24, 2008

Yes… oddly enough our first two children are 2 years and 1 day apart.. so while we partied it up Big Girl style yesterday, today.. we’re doing it in the Middle Guy fashion…

Our middle guy is so different and yet so similar to his sister that it can go from ‘are they twins?’ to ‘are they related?’ in a matter of seconds… their differences are vast, and yet, they love each other to pieces and couldn’t live without the other.. their differences started out right from the labor…

big sis 40 +3

Middle guy 7 +35 mins

Seriously folks… when approaching D-day I was worried about the length of time for my labor.. I mean the big girl’s was SOOO long… and SOOO Painful.. (back labor, slow progression 20+ hours before any pain relief.. you get the picture) I was really scared about how long this might be. The docs said that ‘in general’ second deliveries have about 1/2 the labor time.. so I buckled down and prepared for 20 ish hours.. and God gave me a reprieve!

so anyway… let’s move on to photos!

The big girls Godmother is a sonographer, and she took some high res (back then anyway) U/S of our middle guy… and this is my favorite shot…

awwww look at that face.. and he’s resting on his arm and sleeping calmly…

While his sister’s pregnancy was uneventful (outside of my ridiculous weight gain)… his was FAR from it.. gestational diabetes, heart palpitations, breast lumps, skin cancer development.. sheesh! And in the end, a blood typing incompatibility, resulting in jaundice for the poor thing…

It was Bili Lights and Blankets for the poor guy…

They had to cover his cute little ‘glasses’ with a hat (cut to just cover the glasses) because he was a pro at instantly ripping them off…

see…. that hand was FAST!

He was allowed to spend time with us… and look how cute he was napping on daddy (in my handknit blankey of course!)

He may be all eyes for Mommy, but for this pic, he was all eyes for Daddy!

We still joke about how we took home our garden gnome

And he actually had the BEST hospital photo I’ve seen of any baby in a long time…

I look at this photo and realize how much parenting has aged me… I look like a baby!!!

How tiny… it’s amazing it’s been 6 years!!!

The new family! Meanwhile.. big sis had JUST said ‘put him back’… before we took this shot… oh the LOVE that she had for him from the get go! 😉 (actually she grew to love him unlike any other siblings of any of my friends children… but back in the day he ROCKED her world, and NOT in the good sense!)

This is another of my favorite photos.. it was the 4th of July, and hotter than heck… and he just looked so cute… his onesie was one I made from iron on decals that said USA… it was too hot for any other clothing to be honest! His little ‘Kiwi’ head of hair didn’t last much longer… he was a baldy though for only a few hours.. and then sported a cute little crop of 1/4″ fuzz… it stood straight up on his head until it was about 1 1/2″ long!

And here he is today… my big boy! Still loves his mama more than just about anything else, though today I think he’d tell you he loves his new Webkin better 😉

Happy Birthday little Man! 🙂 I love you!
