Sorry for the silence on the blog lately. But I have a great excuse and here he is:
Silas Augustine arrived at 2:18 pm on Thursday Dec. 19, 2013. He was a plump 9 pounds and 20.25 inches long. I worked really hard to get the delivery I wanted. But things turned out a little differently. Silas was face up and not descending at all despite my pushing efforts. So he came via C-section. Not what I had wanted, but I have no regrets. We have a healthy baby!
He's a bit of a thinker. Haha!
I managed to get a picture of Peter with baby brother Silas. Ethan had no interest in a similar picture. Peter is happy as punch to have a baby brother.
And a Christmas morning picture of all three of my boys. I can't believe I'm a mom of three boys!!
All is going well so far. We've had some bumps along the way, expected growing pains. Nursing did not take right away but we seem to be doing better in that respect now, though Silas still needs a little extra formula to make sure he's getting enough calories. Otherwise, we're figuring things out.
Thank you to everyone for the prayers over the last 9 months. We are so happy to have Silas with us finally!!
