We have a baby.....

Well in my last post I mentioned that I had done accupressure on my daughter to induce labor. Well, it must have worked because at 5:30 p.m. (2 hours after doing pressure points) she asks me what it's like when your water breaks. Sure enough, her water had broken. So, we headed to the hospital. Little Brayden was born a few short hours later. He arrived here on Earth at 12:52a.m. Monday morning. He was a big boy weighing in at 9 lbs and 9 ozs and 21 inches long.

As you can see he is adorable and I'm not proud at all.....NOT.

This is one of my favorite photos so far.

When we brought him home today, he was introduced to the family dogs. As you can see, Daisy was in love from the start. She really does LOVE Brayden.

I can't wait to finish the photo album I posted earlier. First I need to get some sleep. I think I've slept a total of 5 hours in the past 3 days. I got the privelege of staying in the hospital with my daughter while she was there. The guests bed was a very uncomfortable couch.....and I use the term couch loosely....that isn't even wide enough to lay on your back comfortably. But it was worth it to be there. I can't wait to crawl into my own bed tonight and get rested. My plans tomorrow are loving on that little boy. I can't get enough kisses on those cheeks of his.

Thanks for peeking in.
