He’s finally here!

After a long, LONG wait, my baby is finally here!  Here he is, my little Austin.  Isn’t he adorable?!  I love that we have two boys and two girls now…  two redheads and two brunettes.  I won’t go too much  into his birth story, since you’re probably not here for that.  Everything went really well (aside from the fact that I had to have 2 epidurals and a spinal when those both failed… ugh).  He was 9 lbs 6 oz and 21 inches long.  Thankfully my doctor convinced the hospital to help the labor along with some pitocin before my due date because my last two babies were 10 and 11 lbs!   I was really worried that little Austin would be 12!


I cannot tell you how great it feels to not be pregnant anymore!  I’ll never understand women who say that they love it.  This is our last baby, and there is nothing bittersweet about it.  The thought of never being pregnant again makes me SO happy!


I know things have been a little (ok a lot) slow around here.  For some reason, when I’m pregnant, I loose all interest in doing anything but cleaning my house.   Must clean out all the closets before the baby is born!  Haha.  That’s part of the reason why I hate pregnancy so much.  I’ve actually been doing a little bit of crafting, just haven’t felt like sitting at the computer to blog about it.

I’m feeling my motivation to do things start to come back.   Hopefully that means I’ll have some stuff to share with you soon.  No promises though, because man am I tired!  This up-all-night stuff is killing me this time around.

Looks like our littles were born around the same time <3 How were the muslin swaddling blankets for Austin? Were they soft and wonderful?

They were ok, but I will say that the ones you buy in the store are softer. I think I remember reading that there is a better quality gauze called bubble gauze that can be purchased online that is softer. My little guy is too big for swaddling now. :( This year has gone by so fast, as I'm sure you can relate!

Little Austin is beautiful. Austin was the name of my husband's grandfather. Love the head of black hair. Congratulations. We have two more babies coming soon in our family. So excited. Thanks for all your great ideas here, a fun and inspiring place to visit. ~ Abby

Thanks so much Abby! It was my 3rd or 4th great grandfather's name too, so I just pretend that's who we named him after. I really just liked the name though. ;)

He is adorable!! We have two girls and two boys too. After our last we decided no more babies and while I hate being pregnant man I miss having a baby to cuddle and hold. Enjoy cuddling with him while he is little and we will still be here when you feel like blogging again. Oh by the way...ouch on the epidurals and spinal block.

Thanks so much, Sheena! I'm getting all the cuddles I can. And I'm just glad that spinal block worked. I was not prepared to go without!!! :)
