Introducing our newest addition, Littlest Man...

Born February 16, 2012
7 lbs 7 oz
20 inches

It has been five days since welcoming our third bundle of joy into our family.  We have been so blessed with a fairly easy transition to a family of five.  Littlest Man has been a joy, even during the nights.  Little Man and Little Miss have been the best big brother and big sister to Littlest Man.

The labor and delivery of Littlest Man was a great experience.  I was scheduled to be induced Thursday and very nervous about it.  However, it was the right decision. When we arrived at the hospital at 5am contractions had lightly begun.  The amount of inducing I received is what the nursing staff would give most women who come in during full labor to get things moving a little faster.  After my epidural I dilated super fast.  Within an hour I went from 5cm to 10cm.  Thank goodness for good drugs.  I'm not the kind of woman to tough it out when I don't have to.

We only stayed at the hospital for a day and we immediately came home to our friends and family's generosity. It was very sweet to pull in the driveway and see this...

{Thank you Erica for such a sweet greeting}

Since coming home we have not cooked one meal.  A huge thank you to my friend, Jackie, for coordinating all of our meals.  If you have not heard of Take Them a Meal, I suggest you check it out.  Such a great idea for helping others.  I know I will use it in the future!

I'm not sure if I'll get posts up everyday.  We'll see how each day/night goes.  Right now we're focusing on family and enjoying every minute of it.
