We interrupt the unfinished flood story
to update you on our most recent activities...

This is what I have been doing lately!
Our newest BABY BOY arrived on
Wednesday, November 25, 2009
10:12 am
7 pounds 15 ounces
21 1/4 inches long
He has not received his "Gaelic" nickname yet...
though my sister suggested we call him
"Pierce" or "Lance"
because I was on injectable
Progesterone supplementation...
twice weekly shots for 36 weeks...
and diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes...
had to test my blood sugar levels 4 times a day
for the last three months...
Luckily, he didn't need to be poked or prodded
very much after arrival!
I realize that many of my blog readers had
For that I am sorry...
I spent so much time at the beginning wondering
if we would lose this baby, that I never did quite
figure out HOW to mention this pregnancy on this blog...
By the time I was SURE that he would be joining us,
it just felt funny... : (
Needless to say, the last few days,
I've been cuddled up with the little munchkin...
We got home from the hospital yesterday &
the "milk truck" pulled in last night.
We are busy establishing a balance between sleep,
nursing and a chance to get to the bathroom : )
Blessedly, Scooter and Tilly are AWESOME
at holding and snuggling with him when I am occupied!
The "sibling rivalry" in this house is something like...
"No, its MY TURN to hold him!!!"
Snorkie spends his time kissing the baby's head,
and saying, "He's SO CUTE, I can't stand it!"

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
