I know many of you have been wondering if I’ve had the baby yet. The answer is… YES! Simon arrived September 2 after a few complications resulting in a C-Section. He had a true knot in his cord AND a short cord, so he wouldn’t descend. We are very thankful for the C-Section option so our little guy is here healthy.
Since then, I’ve been busy healing and enjoying my little guy. He was a healthy 8 lb, 2 oz and 21 inches long at a week early. He’s a great nurser, an okay sleeper, and an all around cutie pie! I’m completely in love with this little man. Recovery has been taking me a bit longer than I would have liked and I’m still healing and getting stronger each day. Thankfully my husband has about 6 weeks off so he can help me with the recovery and keeping the other kids going on homeschool work and such. He’s fantastic like that.
The big kids just love their baby brother and ask constantly to help with him or hold him. That is very much appreciated by this mama! Our church has been great as well providing meals for us and making sure we have the support we need.
Thanks for being patient with me while our family grows and heals.
