Look Who's Here!!


On Wednesday at about 11 a.m., Mike and I drove to the hospital and I vented to him about how ridiculous it is that with our 4th kid, we were about to be sent home from the hospital with a false alarm, just like last time. At 7:15 p.m., Joseph Pio was born. More on that later.

He is super healthy and everything has been great other than a short stay here in the NICU with more cords and machines and room hopping than I ever imagined. There were some slight complications due to a combo of amniotic fluid being aspirated and him being only 37 weeks.

^ Happiest dad in all the land.

He spent until late last night looking like this:

Which made nursing interesting. But is now resting peacefully sans stupid infant IV (worst thing ever!!) and no more nose tubes!!

He is the sweetest thing in the entire world and I am wrapped tightly around his tiny fingers already, and we will be taking him home today! We could not be more blessed.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers, you are the best!

  1. AHHH!!! Congratulations! That was not the blog post I expected today! I am now SUUUUUPPPPER JEALOUS because I am still sitting pretty at 37 weeks and just dying for this baby to come and now I will probably be saying every day for the next 3 (maybe 4 or 5) weeks "well, Ana had her baby so maybe!?!?" Because you have your baby early clearly implies mine should be as well (pregnancy logic at its finest!).

    He looks perfect! Praise God!

    I'm glad your NICU stay was so short (although I'm sure it felt incredibly long and painful for you) and I hope Joseph and your mother's heart are free from any further complications.
    God bless your family

  37. He is so beautiful! NICU stays are never fun, but thankfully yours was a pretty short duration--hopefully that was consolation for the awful nose tube! Even though we haven't met, I've been following your blog for a long while and am so glad your baby boy is here, safe & sound. Hugs!
