I'm Back!

Well, I am easing back into the real world. These last six days have flown by, and dragged on all at the same time. I didn't get to bed until 11ish on Tuesday night, I couldn't sleep with all those emotions going through me. We got to the hospital at 4 a.m. sharp but my doctors office forgot to send the orders for the medicine so we didn't get things started until 5. My contractions went from 0 to 50 in about 2 seconds. We had a little bit of trouble with the epidural at first but once it kicked in everything was smooth sailing. I pushed for about 5 minutes and had my little man in my arms in no time. Matt actually cut the cord! (He didn't get to do it with Brooke.) Maddux Cade was born at 12:07 p.m. weighing in at 7lbs 5oz, 19 inches long. We have been doing pretty good with the breast feeding, although I wanted to give up within the first day. We go in on Wednesday for his first check up, I'm pretty sure he has gained at least a little weight.

Brooke has been quite a busy girl as well. She had Grandma (Billie) stay with her on Wednesday night and Nonna stayed with her Thursday night. Friday she visited Miarim and Jackie at the office. Saturday she had a sleepover at cousin Davin's house. Yesterday we had the Goode's, Rodger's and a special surprise from Grammy (my mom's mom) and my cousin Britney. Today we are all just relaxing!


As for mommy, I feel great! I love having my husband and babies here bonding with each other. Brooke loves being a big sister even more than I thought she would. We have only had one jealousy issue and that was because Aunt Meagan was holding bubbah, she isn't jealous when he is with me or Matt. We have had so much amazing help and support, I don't think we could have done it without our parents and siblings. Thank you guys! And thanks to Tammy who came to the hospital to keep me company, I really think that laughing for 2 hours straight has led to a speedy recovery... I will be sure to return the favor. I will try to keep everyone updated as often as possible.

You have two wonderful and beautiful children. Brittany had a wonderful time with everyone this past weekend. I'm so glad y'all got to spend some time getting to know each other.

I enjoy keeping up with you and your family but can you do a favor for your dear old blind cousin, can you print the text in something lighter? I have trouble reading it. I hope to come down to see everyone sometime this year.

I would love to go walking together! isn't breast feeding supposed to be more of a reason to eat healthy, not bad...? lol.
