Our newest addition!

Our sweet Noah Henry was born 9.10.14 -- 7 lbs 7 oz -- 18 inches

Lots of blonde hair!  And he looks exactly like Liam when he was born!
Right after delivery

Going home!

Noah is doing great and we came home the next day after birth.  My labor was a little longer than I expected being this my second child I always heard they came a lot faster than the first.  But I am thankful he come on his own in the timeframe we were looking for! I started having contractions shortly after my OB appointment Tuesday morning of last week.  It was a slow going until the next morning, and Noah came pretty quickly and arrived at 9:05 Wednesday morning.  I opted to forego pain meds and epidural, and was successful, however I am not sure I would do that again! LOL  But I am glad everything went smooth and I recovered much faster this time around.  He has been feeding great, gaining weight and being a normal baby.  We did have a slight jaundice issue which prompted some home phototherapy treatment last weekend.  I actually got a little emotional when they delivered the equipment to our house, mainly because I am hormonal!  But it brought back some memories of Liam's birth, and those feelings came unexpectedly.  But all is well, after much prayer and hearing from the Lord about it, I am at peace.  It is so sweet for me to see both my boys together - Such sweet precious miracles they both are!

We have been adjusting to life at home with a newborn and trying to maintain some sort of consistency in our days for Liam sake -- it's been a challenge, but we have wonderful family and friends here who have helped out this past week and we are SO appreciative! 

More to come!  I'm off to feed our lil guy!  Love and hugs to all - thanks for keeping up with us!
