Theo's Arrival!

5.29.2012

Theo arrived early Saturday morning, on his due date!  My contractions started while at work on Friday afternoon.  I didn't really think anything of it because the day before my doctor was thinking he wouldn't be here for another week.  But the contractions kept getting stronger so I went home from work and ate some dinner.  We went ahead and called "Grandma" Izzy to come over and get MJ and took the dogs to their babysitter's house.  We got up to the hospital at about 7:30pm.  They admitted me at around 10pm once contractions started getting closer together.  I got my epidural around 11pm (PTL!)  With Madelyn I didn't get my epidural in time so it didn't really do any good.  This time around, it actually worked!!  This was a much different experience than with Madelyn!  Theodore Joseph came at 2:33am weighing in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 19.5 in. long.  Our little blessing.

We came home late Sunday morning and settled in.  The dogs came back on Sunday evening and Madelyn came back last night.  I sure did miss that girl!!  My mom came in yesterday afternoon.  It'll be nice having her help!  My best friend, Brandy, flies in next Wednesday.  Very excited about seeing her!  Then it's nonstop family for the next month and a half.

Things have been going well so far.  Theo was eating 1.5 ounces every 4 hours, but wasn't getting full so we're changing it to 1.5 ounces every 3-3.5.  He's been doing okay at night; still getting used to a new place.  He'll get used to his new home =).

So happy our little buddy is here.  Tim and I were wondering how our hearts could expand anymore after having Madelyn, BUT they sure have.  We love him.

Now for some pics...lots of them!
