On Monday, November 17, 2014 Thomas Harold joined the world. 8 lbs and 3 oz. and 21 inches long. He is so lovely and we are just smitten with him already.
Look at these two big brothers. Johnathan (6) has been such a trooper. He is just in love with his new baby brother and Robbie (20 months), he isn't sure what to think yet but with some time I know he'll come around.
Look at my husband, he's such a natural at this. He makes it look easy. I think that is Thomas's first smile right there and he hasn't even left the hospital yet. I may have another daddy's boy on my hands!
This is my first moments with Thomas. I still have my hair net on from surgery (the real deal folks!). A momma waits 9 months to hold and love their new little baby and those agonizing final minutes of waiting after a c-section feel like an eternity. Once I finally got to hold him, we are both instantly in love with each other.
It's been two weeks and we're starting to get into a routine here at home. It will take a while yet, but things are starting to return to "normal" (whatever the heck that means).
Please excuse my absence as I get to know and bond with my newest little addition. This is FOR SURE our last baby so I'm trying to enjoy and savor every little cuddle I can because I know in a blink of an eye, they will be all grown up.
See you soon! Hugs!
