Of course, the main event in that time was my little boy's birth - finally!
I will share the story of his birth soon, but until then, the basics:
Isaiah Michael was born April 19, 2011 at 7:49 pm - 8 pounds 10 ounces, 21.5" long, and healthy as can be, praise the Lord!
We are so blessed by him - he is beautiful and strong and healthy and an absolute joy!
He only cries when there's a reason for it, so we've probably been able to get more sleep than most parents of newborns (well, this week, at least - the first week, not so much)...though we do obviously have lots of feedings at night that keep Mom up :)
He is starting to open his eyes more and more everyday, and they are this beautiful, deep blue - very much like his Dad's, and I LOVE that!
At his 1-week check-up, he had already surpassed his birthweight, so breastfeeding is apparently going well!
We just love, love, love our little miracle and are SO grateful for a healthy, strong baby.
Probably within the next several weeks, I'll be creating a new blog with updates on Isaiah so that all of our long-distance friends and family can keep up on his adventures - when it's up and running, I'll pass that info along here, as well.
More to come...
