Introducing Micah

Here is Micah. We weren't expecting him to show until tuesday, which is when the induction was scheduled...both the other boys waited until the induction. There was a baby shower at 7 friday night, and that's when we went up to the hospital! Bummer, I missed out on the cake and ice cream... I hadn't realized I was in labor, and he'd been pretty sleepy, so we went in to make sure everything was ok and ended up staying. When I was at a 6 the doc gave me a little pitocin to speed things up, and by 12:20 saturday morning he arrived. He weighed 8 lbs 9 oz and was 22 inches long. Everything went great!
Proud Papa!The next day a visitor took our photo, after very little rest.This was right after he got cleaned up, I still had the shakes.

Congratulations! 3 boys- so exciting. I never get good rest at the hospital after having a baby. That is why I am thinking of having a home birth for the next child. With as quickly as the last boy came, I might not have a choice! :o) Hope you adjust quickly to having a new child and are blessed with much needed energy and help from friends. If I lived closer I'd come clean your house, watch your children so you could get showers or a nap in and make meals in a heart-beat! A big hug to you and your new little one. :o)
