Taken the weekend before my mom went home and I went into labor.


On Monday, April 26th I had an OB appt. Just the usual past-the-due-date appointment. The Doctor decided to have an ultrasound done to check my fluid levels and it ended up being really low so I was sent to the hospital to be induced. Blake came home from work for lunch and ended up not going back. This is us at around 1-ish waiting for a nurse to come get me.
The labor went a lot more quickly then with Jacob and around 8:30 pm Joshua David came into the world. He was 20 inches long and weighed just under 8 pounds. 7 pounds 15 1/2 oz to be exact. (LOL!!!)


Dinnertime for the new mama.
The next day, my mom and Jacob came to the hospital to see the new baby - My beautiful sons!

With all my boys! (I'm really outnumbered now)
I'm really thankful that my mom was able to come. She left the night after Joshua was born. I'm glad he came while she was still here. Blake was able to spend the first night with me in the hospital.
Blake has been home for the past week and will be home for the next week. He's been taking care of cleaning, cooking (minus the meals the RS brought in - THANK YOU!!) and also entertaining Jacob.
Breakfast with Daddy
Oatmeal? Where?
Jacob has been doing really well with his new brother. He tries to share pacifiers, burp cloths and graham crackers. He sometimes gets a little rough but most of the time, he either ignores Joshua completely or gently pokes or pets him.

Congratulations! He is adorable. So nice that you had him while your mom was still there so Blake could sleep at the hospital with you the first night! And so she could see him before she left, of course.
