I have a really good reason...

for not blogging for so long...

I had the baby!! Matthew William was born July 31st at 4:21pm by emergency c-section. He weighed 5 lbs 9.1 oz and was 19 inches long. I went in for my bi-weekly NST and he wasn't being reactive enough and after monitoring me and doing an ultrasound my doctor decided it was best to deliver immediately. I was 36 weeks and 2days. Only 2 weeks shy of my scheduled delivery. It was very nerve wracking because Robby couldn't get ahold of anyone and he had to stay with Gracie and wasn't able to be in the operating room with me. I hated that part most of all. I was so scared...I made a nurse hold my hand. LOL Even though I'd had a previous c-section, I don't think you ever get used to the idea of being cut on. Eek!

Matthew needed to have oxygen right after delivery (as most c-section and preemie babies do) and had to stay in the hospital 2 days past my release date because of jaundice, but is doing really well. He is such a content, easy baby. I am so blessed and love him so very much.


  1. He is so beautiful! I love his little diaper, too cute! Or is it a cover? What kind is it, it fits him so well! Daddy and Gracie look so happy holding him. But where is a pic of mom and baby??? Please post one!
    Take care :)

  2. I can't believe how bright-eyed and alert he is in that last picture! He really doesn't look like a premie at all. Although I can't imagine holding a baby under 6 pounds. A great big congratulations to the whole family.

  3. What a beautiful little boy! Congratulations!!
