Been a little busy...

Charlie has arrived- last Sunday. I am working on getting the pictures, hopefully tomorrow! Last week I felt like I was in labor almost every night! Contractions would start around when I put the kids to bed, and then fizzle out a few hours later. Finally, Sunday morning I woke up around 1 hurting, and after a few hours of going in and out of sleep I finally was hurting too bad to sleep and got up and got ready. I spent all morning timing contractions and suffering, waiting for some kind of consistent pattern until I couldn't wait any more. We checked into the hospital around 2:30 and luckily for me they were pretty slow and happy to admit me and get that epidural going. Charlie arrived at 7:30 that night, a chubby and healthy 8lbs 1oz, without any major complications and we are both doing good! I don't get much done in the early weeks with a new baby, as you can see this post took me a week to do! Pictures of our handsome little boy to come soon!
