One Week old!

Birthday friends

We love our little guy!

Auntie Mel has come for a visit

Thanks Uncle Justin for bringing us this baby swing

I cant believe a whole week has gone by since Austin was born! So far he is a pretty calm baby. He lets his mum sleep at night which is greatly appreciated. He likes his baby swing and being in his car seat. He does not like getting a bath or having his diaper changed. I guess he is a little modest :-) We are falling in love with him more and more each day. Now I know what everyone is talking about when they have kids. I worry about him all the time!

First moments in our home

Like son
Well we are pleased to welcome little Austin into our home. He was born on August 24th and the delivery went really well....thanks to my new best friend Mr. Epidural. I did not feel any pain at all which is pretty amazing. I know that when I worked in labor and delivery that people would tell me how awesome the Epidural was but to experience it myself is another story. Austin decided to come 8 days early....thank goodness for that because he weighed 7 lbs 11oz and was 20 inches long. When I look at him I think it is crazy that he was all cramped up inside me. He is huge! Anyway we are at home now and loving it. I forgot that in the hospital you get NO sleep. Austin was good but those dang nurses (haha) kept waking me up. Today we went to Austins first appt. and he passed with flying colors. Horray for healthy babies!! Being a nurse gives me paranoia about every possible disease/condition he could have. Well we hope that you can all meet our sweet little boy soon. We love you all and thank you all for your support!

A couple of weeks ago my wonderful co-workers threw me a baby shower. It was really great! I have loved working in Pediatric Research for the past two years and it has been so much fun sharing this experience with the great friends I have made. They had a potluck lunch for me and everyone brought such delicious food. I know that Austin is going to love all the goodies from the shower. We even had some new babies join us. Two of my friends at work were preggo at the same time as me which was really nice. They were both able to bring their new babies to the shower. It made me really excited to see this rascal punching away at my insides! Thanks again gals!
