Goodbye Pregnancy, Hello Ethan!

We did it! He is finally here! I couldn't be more in love. Even though the last 10 months were hard, I would do it all again because I have never laid eyes on anything as beautiful as my little boy.

Everything with the surgery went well. It was a very relaxing day for me. I can't say the same for Aaron who actually had to watch the surgery. We went in to the hospital at 11 to get ready. By 1:30 I was in the operating room. Then at 1:49 Ethan was here. Aaron recorded the surgery on video. I have yet to watch it, and I am not sure if I will ever have the guts to do so.

Ethan did have to spend his first night in the ICU. He struggled to breath because of some excess fluid in his lungs. He is doing great now. We spent from Friday to Tuesday in the hospital. They kept me an extra day because I would get dizzy while walking around. With my history of passing out they were nervous to send me home. We are all home now and we are all doing great. Recovery has been a breeze. I count it as a blessing for the last 10 months I've endured.

Check out some of his first week...







In case you're now on Ethan overload, an Ethan blog is under construction. I'll give out the blog link soon. Thank you for all the support over the past 10 months. Ethan is finally here!

SO glad. Such a cute boy and such a cute name! We are excited for you guys. Glad the recovery is going well, mine was horrible! Welcome to motherhood!

He is darling!! I can't decide which one of you he looks like.

I love that you feel we are on Ethan overload within the first week. Not so. But I am glad you are doing an Ethan blog anyway. It will be fun to see. I bet it is because you have taken so many darling pictures this last week and don't see that slowing down. So instead of deciding which ones to pick and choose, you just post them all on his blog. That is one of the reasons I had for Warren anyway.

I never got to see him with eyes open - he's so cute! Not that he wasn't when he was sleeping, he's absolutely adorable. (It makes me so excited for July!) So happy you've been feeling well. YAY!
