2 Weeks and Counting

I've been completely MIA lately and with good reason. My last month of pregnancy was a little bit miserable and a lot busy as we readied the house for our newest little bundle. May 7th I went in for my regular weekly check up and the Doctor mentioned that it looked like the baby was winning. After two weeks of being told our little man would here super soon...I was MORE than ready. I told him I would have Silas that second if I could so we booked an induction for that Friday.

Munch was more than a little excited about meeting his littlest brother. 

I felt a little guilty organizing his birth like that...almost like I was taking away something from him. BUT really, it ended up being perfect. The people we needed to be there were able to get there without any rushing. The BIG boys were well taken care of during (and after) labor/birth. 
 It was a completely stress free event. I went in, they drugged me and a few hours later I was presented with a gorgeous baby boy. His brothers adore him. They are constantly checking to make sure he is doing okay and growing well and they CANNOT wait until he's big enough to play with them. 
I feel so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful boys. It's going to be a crazy and wild adventure, but I'm looking forward to it.

Congratulations!!!! I am so happy and excited for you.

Can I just say? I got induced as well and I had the exact same feeling. I decided that since the baby was healthy that I did the right thing. I just had to make my peace with it. And, it is much easier when you have other little ones at home who need looking after!

Look at Silas grabbing the stethescope already. What a strong boy! Congrats again :)
