I have seriously neglected this poor blog, mainly due to the fact I didn't think I have a lot of interesting stuff to say, but now more than ever, I want  make that NEED to capture all of these precious moments. So let me start with some super exciting news..... Our sweet baby boy is here!

Little A was born on November 2nd at 5:31am. He weighed 8 lbs. 1oz and was 19" long. Labor was a lot better than I had prepared myself for but I will save all of that story for another post.

Before I forget, yes mommy brain is real, I have a few things to highlight.

1) Little A's first doctor appointment- It was 2 days after he was born. The Doctor (who happened to be my doctor when I was a child) said "I don't say this often, but this baby is perfect!" Little A's discharge weight when we left the hospital was 7 lbs. 6 oz. At his check up, he was already up to 7 lbs. 9 oz. Doctor B. said "Mommy gets an A+ in nursing and little dude gets an A+ in eating, keep it up guys!" Such a relief for me, nursing can be a challenge and I was worrying whether he was getting enough  but that just proved he definitely was!

2) Last night, November 27, Little A slept through the night!!!!! I was shocked he slept for a solid 8 hours. He has always been a good sleeper, even our first night home. The first week he slept in 3 hour increments at night, and his sleep periods just increased from there. The longest he has gone until last night was 6 hours, but boy oh boy am I proud of him and grateful he let me sleep that long!!

I plan to do a few posts over the next few days covering the whole labor and delivery process, Little A's first few weeks home, and everything in-between. These are such precious memories to me and I want to be sure to capture them fully. SO hold tight....

Until then, enjoy the precious moments, thank Jesus, and love each other <3
