Can you believe it? He's here!

It seems I've been quite the bad blogger, but I have an excuse. Really, I do! Packing up and moving to a new house 8 months pregnant kept me really busy and then having the baby a month later to top it off. I just wanted to share the story of the arrival of Bryson Cole with everyone and this was an easy way to do it!

He arrived on May 16 at 8:03 AM during a planned c-section. The one thing I DIDN'T plan was the spinal not taking effect and I had to be put to sleep. That was scary, but let me tell you, not half as scary as still having feeling in your belly when you're about to have surgery wide awake! Anyway, he weighed 8lb 5 oz, was 19 3/4 in long and had a head full of hair. The old wives' tale of hair and heartburn proved true with me because I had it BAD the entire time! Just trying to recover from the surgery and doing pretty well, really. Lots of sleep deprevation going on here since this kid has to eat every 1 1/2 - 3 hours. Big brother Braden is totally in love with his new baby and has been very good with him. He checks on him and hugs him when he cries and tells Bryson a hundred times a day that he "loves him forever!"
Nothing can melt a Mom's heart like that! I don't have all of the pics uploaded yet, but here are a few.

I hope to be a little better about updating from now on so just check back from time to time. I might actually get a spare moment to post something! Now, if I could just get talented enough to feed Bryson and type at the same time.....
