In case you somehow missed the big news, our newest little boy arrived – FINALLY – on May 8. He was due May 3, so he was a little late! We were glad when he finally made his big appearance. I was allowed to go into labor, really for the first time, and labored almost 24 hours before a c-section became necessary, unfortunately. His heart was just not liking labor, so the doctors decided surgery would be safest.
James Lee (middle name after my father) weighed in at 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and was 20.5 inches long. He looks almost identical to his older siblings. 🙂 He’s a very content little boy, loved on almost constantly by Elena and Joseph.
I am recovering, slowly but surely. The third c-section really takes a toll on you apparently. But, overall, recovery is going just fine. Now we’re just working on getting into a new routine. Elena even told her teachers yesterday in church that she missed Sunday School because “things are different now.”
Brian was home the first few days with us, but then went back to working on the duplex while my mom and sister were around each day to help out. They have come a long way with the duplex and the first half is just about complete. He’s busy doing tile in the bathroom these days. The kitchen has arrived for the second half and will be installed soon.
Continue to pray for us as we adjust to life with 3 little ones. I am doing more work from home this week and will return to the office next week barring no complications. Thank you to everyone who brought meals and gifts for the kids and myself. They are very appreciated!
