 A few days before our little guy came 

 Fresh out of the oven!!
9lbs 4 oz. 21 inches

 Benny gets to meet Blue Doggy

 Food! even hospital food--- give it to me!!

On our way home

Ive been meaning to post some pics of the Baby but we have camera cord problems so I have finally caved in and am just putting MOBILE pics on here!  

We love little Ben he is so healthy and strong- a miracle!! He was weighed yesterday and was 10 lbs 7 oz already! I feel like  I have a 2 month old compared to my other kids!  I FINALLY have my dark haired baby too! I hope he stays dark that is!....

(Yes-- I am typing this while feeding at 4 am!)

I wanted to do a natural birth- no induction and no pain meeds!! So with some meditation, hypo birthing playing in my ears, lamaze 101 (and anything else I could read for that matter) tucked away in my little brain, I drank my orange juice castor oil concoction at 41 wks and I was on my way into labor!!! It was so quick and fast!! I fell asleep at 11:00 pm the night before thinking I might be feeling regular contractions. I woke up at 1:30 am when my 2 year old had to pee. The contractions were regular! I was still having them! At 2:30 I woke up robert and called my sis-in-law! Arrived at hospital by 3:30 and baby arrived a half hour later!! It was awesome!  

With all the preparation for Birth, I neglected a bit the preparation for postpartum- lets just say that things are wild over here and my emotions are unstable! Pray all three of my children will be live to see the light of each new day! Ha just kidding, kind of...... . What a great experience having three ACTIVE BOYS is too- it is WILD but it is LIFE and I am happy to be busy living it!
