Baby C was born last Thursday, February 6, 2014. We are so lucky to have him. Since I'm doing this on my phone, with a baby in my arms, I will not share the full birth story. The short story is my water broke at 3:30. We made it to the hospital by 5 AM. And he was born at 7:23, after waiting and waiting for the doctor.
We were able to come home after just 24 hours. I am so grateful. We had a great hospital experience, but it was still the hospital. I would much rather be home, especially to be with my other children. I particularly worried about V.
It was a unique day, too, because we had snow. We don't get a lot of snow here. It snowed most of the day.
We are lucky that K. stayed with the kids in the morning, then my sister came and took the kids for the rest of that day and overnight and the next morning. That was such a blessing, especially for V.
V Is doing okay. Her volume has gotten a lot louder. I think it is her trying to get attention, as her life is turned upside down. She loves her baby brother, and does not seem to blame him for the upheaval.
