Introducing Thomas Joseph!

Hi everyone! *waves*
Figured it was about time I updated everyone

I went into labor on Thursday Morning, and by 5pm that day, we were headed to the hospital.
At 7:08 pm Thomas Joseph was born!
He weighed in at 7 pounds 5 oz and was 19 3/4" long.

I had a med free waterbirth and am very proud of myself that I did that.

We got discharged from the Hospital on Saturday Afternoon and have just been getting into some sort of routine since being home. So far its going well. He gets up twice so far during the night but i get about 3-4 hours of sleep each time, so I feel pretty lucky.

Ok, enough boring talk, onto pictures!!
3 hours 7 mins. old

2 days old

5 days old. Look how happy!

OMG He's beautiful! Newborns always make my cry (maybe it's because I have one on the

Thanks so much for the update! You are very lucky that he sleeps that much! I'm so glad that all is well with you guys and that you are settling into a routine already!

I'm also very proud of you for doing it med free, I'm not nearly that brave. I told them to give me everything they could with my son!

BTW I love his name (Joseph is what we are going to name our baby if it's a boy )

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.
