Boy *oh* Boy!

He has finally come! My baby boy!

JUDE MICHAEL

born on his due date (Feb.5th) he is a WHOPPER of a guy at:

9 lbs 4 oz and 22 in long

i was having hard contractions Friday night around 6:00 p.m. and went to the ER shortly after. . .they were REALLY busy and sent me home. . . dang.
my contractions were not HARD enough. . .
tell that to me will ya! not hard enough my eye!
the nurse was like. . . "see you in the morning!" ;)
and guess what!?! i was back at 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning!
it was a long labor but he was totally worth it.
i didn't have to push for very long. . . about 30 minutes and then he was out at 3:21 p.m.
he had some complications with swallowing liquid during birth and had to be in a pre-NICU for a short time :(
thankfully he recouped quickly and was soon able to join me breathing perfectly normal. . . yay!

other than being EXHAUSTED and very, very sore. . . everyone is happy and healthy.
baby Jude LOVES to eat and i feed him on the hour. . . every hour.
talk about my Jabba the Hut man!
he eats more than my Kendy did! and i NEVER thought that would be a possibility ;)

Indiana LOVES him and is such a good big sister.
you should have heard her when we brought him home!
"it's my baby brother! he is FINALLY here! he came out of your stomach mom. . . your not fat anymore." tee hee!
Kendy is a good big sister too. . . but a bit more out of joint than Indy is.
she gets jealous when Jude is in my arms (which is A LOT) but she still loves to get him his "BoBo" (binky) and help when it is time to feed him :)

of course i think he is totally adorable and having a boy is better than i could have ever imagined.
just love the little/big guy!

thanks everyone for all your love and prayers. . . we feel it all!
