Our Little Man

Early this week, God sent us our gift…our sweet baby, Henry James, finally decided to make his debut!


He might have stayed in my belly for 42 weeks and required the doctors to induce him, but as soon as we started the induction, Hank the Tank got on board.

I only labored with little peanut for a few hours and the epidural was AWESOME. Like, totally awesome…ladies, you should get it.


Once Henry was ready, I pushed for 16 minutes and he popped right out.


We didn’t know the sex beforehand, so when Mark shouted “It’s a boy!!!”…I totally lost it.




We are over the moon with this sweet baby and trying to figure out this parent thing. Oh my god, I already have like 5 funny stories to tell you…but that’s for another post!
