Say Hello

I certainly didn't think that this would be my next post, but here I am, not even sure how or where to begin. Wednesday was supposed to be a post of baby shower pics, but as usual for me well things didn't go as planned. Instead I am here to announce that Wednesday March 14 @ 9:22 pm I gave birth via c-section to a 3 pound 5.6 ounce baby boy. I am still in dis belief myself, but he is here, is gorgeous and he has stolen my heart even more now that I see him on the outside. Part of me wishes that he were still on the inside growing and thriving where he is supposed to be, and the other part of me knows that it was just time. There were so many signs ( that i may post about another day), but it is still so surreal. He is in the NICU and doing great. He has been breathing on his own since friday and continues to do so. He has also been tolerating his feedings very well. I finally made it home yesterday and I must say that I am beat. I am pumping until he is able to come home so I am still waking up as if he is here as they want me to pump every 2 to 3 hours to keep my supply up and so far so good. I want to thank everyone for your love and and prayers and texts and emails. I wish I could express what it truly means to me. I love you all and I truly mean that. And before I start babbling I will end here and leave you with a picture of the little one that has stolen my heart:

I'm in tears. Tears of shock, tears of pride for you ( you did it!), tears of happiness, tears of hope, tears that you've gotten to the point of hearing the cry of your own child...just everything. How amazingly overwhelming. Shandrea, your son is absolutely adorable. All 3lbs 5.6 ounces of him. May he continue to thrive and be reunited with his mommy and daddy soon! I hope for each day that he keeps gaining those precious ounces!! Does he have a name?
