My Special Delivery!


That's right friends, Jaxon Patrick is home! He was born 12-14-09 at 7:46 am, by c-section, and was 9 lb.s 4 oz., 22.5 inches long. And I AM IN LOVE. He is a sweet, mellow baby, who sleeps through the night right now (I wake him to feed him, but he basically sleeps on through it... what a boy.)

We are both doing very well, I am healing slowly but surely. I had no idea how much work actually went into the recovery after a c-section... and I am not one who loves to lie idle, so it has been a bit of a chore to be patient while my husband adoringly waits on me and his son. :) What a blessing my Patrick has been when I try to push myself grotesquely out of bed because I haven't the stomach muscles to do it on my own, and what wonderful long arms he has when I have needed something (diaper, anyone?) that is just out of reach... not to mention the spinach, alfredo pizza and tomato bisque soup he brings to the table. How I love him. And how I love the fact that he has not yet uttered a complaint. (I can occasionally see the flicker of being overwhelmed reach his eyes as the girls constantly murmer "Daddy, Dad, Dad, Daddy", and yet he just keeps on keeping on.) My husband. Doing the laundry, preparing the meals, watching Lifetime Christmas Chick flicks with me... my hero!
Pin It!

He is adorable Heidi. Something about having a little boy after having 2 girls...so sweet. Enjoy every minute of it and I hope that his sleeping habits stay a 'habit' for ya! Rest up. Hubby sounds like a Godsend. Tell him to keep on truckin'! :)

Merry Christmas!
