Baby Conner arrives!!

Here is my room...all ready for a new baby.

A lot of things were going through my mind at this point...probably the main thing was "Let's get this over with!"

And about 2 1/2 hours later, at 10:41 a.m., he arrived. He is such a blessing. Thanks for all your prayers...I know that is why everything went so well.

More hospital pics...

Cassidee and Stephanie came to see the baby...

Susan and Codee were there through the whole thing. Codee was a trooper-she didn't get grossed out at all. And Susan was amazing as always...telling me to breath through the pain and assuring me that I really could do it!

All of this work tuckered Sammy out. He loves his baby brother...and so far isn't showing any signs of jealousy. Did I just jinx myself?

Thank you, Emily!!!

My sister did this...

so I could do this.

Words can't describe how grateful I am for my sister. She flew in a couple of days before our new baby arrived. She cooked and cleaned and played with the kids. She ran the kids to their various activities. Then when Conner and I got home from the hospital she took care of us both. She changed more messy diapers than I can count. She held Conner when Sammy needed my attention. I don't really know how I'll do it without her. Thank you, Emily, for missing work and flying out here to help me. Thank you....thank you....thank you.
