He’s Here!!!

He’s Here!!!

Me with little Ashton just a few hours after he was born…

Our family- of 6!

My sweet Ashton John- one day old

Yes, my sweet little Ashton John arrived as scheduled on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. All along I really thought he would come early but this boy was in NO rush! I think he would have probably waited another week or two. (Then he would have been a really big boy!) Ashton was born at 9:47 am and weighed 8 lbs. 2 oz. 20 inches long. He has dark brown eyes, beautiful complexion and is just PERFECT! A very healthy baby boy! We have been home for one week now and I must say he is also a very good baby. He is nursing well and sleeps great! Two huge blessings!

The recovery has been the hardest this time around. I am pretty sure it is because of the tubal. The first 5 days were AWFUL. I am now in the “manageable” phase. I am trying to wean myself off the pain meds. Hopefully I will be completely off in the next few days.

So right now I am resting and recovering. It’s extremely hard to picture myself running right now- let alone running a marathon. I am just taking it in baby steps. In 3 weeks I will start with walking around the block. I also have about 20 pounds to lose. Not really looking forward to that but it NEEDS to be done. I would love to eventually fit into some regular clothes!

For now I am just going to rest and recover and most importantly- enjoy my sweet new baby boy!!
