EJ is here!!!!!

I'm holding my perfect baby boy in my arms right now (which is making typing very hard)!!

I will post my full birth story shortly, but I wanted to write an update to let you all know everything is great. The delivery was scary and filled with drama...of course...but it had the most wonderful ending! I had to have an emergency c-section, but it was very quick and I'm healing well from it.

EJ was born at 3:20 am on New Year's Day (Happy Birthday to Katie too!!!!!). He was a small 5 lbs 6 oz and is now about 5 lbs even. He's 19 inches long and has long legs like his Daddy. We think he's just perfect. He's such a good little boy. Only fusses or cries when he's hungry and loves to be held. Jimmy is doing great with him and has been sniffing his tush constantly. I think he's going to be very protective of our little guy.

I'm so in love :)

Here are some pictures from his first day...

Oh Maria, he's beautiful! And how great that he was born on Katie's birthday!

I'm sorry the delivery was scary--pregnancy is just one crazy drama after another, huh? But what a happy ending!

Welcome to the world, gorgeous EJ!

Now, missy, you should be glad you posted pics. I was going to get on to you for making us worry for the past 6 days. (The pics melted that away!) I've been stalking you & sent Katie out to stalk you too! Glad everything is okay though.

WELCOME EJ!
