So very much to BLOG about!!!
First and foremost:
Ryan was born on Saturday. I am completely in love with this baby and cannot believe how incredibly easy it is to love something so precious and small. I should have known the feelings would come.
He is adorable and sweet, and has a very peaceful disposition. I will save you the details of labor….but it was a little scary at the beginning. We were talking about doing an emergency C-section, in fact, we were planning on it. We had to wait a little while before we went that way and as we waited, things settled down, and we were able to have a normal labor. Ryan was 6 pounds 7 ounces, 19 inches long, at delivery. He is loved and doted on by all of his siblings. We are so very grateful to have him join our family.
Third, Johnathan leaves on Wednesday morning for the MTC (Missionary Training Center). He will be there for two and half weeks and then he heads off to Florida for his mission.
So, it has been and will continue to be a very emotional couple of weeks. I forget all the hormones that accompany the birth of a child and all of the adjustment that comes with it. We are still in the honeymoon period of the process. As we move into the full swing of things, I am sure there will be more stress and adjustment, but for now, I am completely happy and in awe of the entire process. And for those of you who are wondering…..check out this hair:
It is a frosty blonde color. Most of my babies have very little black hair….but not Ryan….lots and lots of yummy frosting on top of my cute little cupcake.
