Our Perfect Gift

It has been a long time since my last post and I have a good reason! I am excited to say our precious son was born on December 17, 2010. He is our perfect gift and arrived in time for Christmas. I had to be put on bed rest for a couple of days due to high blood pressure and because my blood pressure did not go down our doctor decided to induce me on December 16. After almost 30 hours of labor and a c-section, Logan was born at 3:21 pm. He weighed 6 pounds 8 ounces and is 20 inches long. I was extremely nervous at first for the prospect of a c-section after such a long labor, but when his heart rate dropped and I had been laboring for so long, I willingly accepted having the c-section. I was not nervous going in and surprisingly was relaxed and ready to meet our little guy. They even had Frosty the Snowman playing in the operating room because I had been listening to Christmas music the whole time I was in labor. The staff at the hospital was amazing and I have quickly recovered from the c-section. The past 3 and half weeks have been a whirlwind of amazingness as well as sleeplessness. I am loving every minute of being a mommy and am excited for all the amazing milestones and characteristics Logan will be meeting in the days to come.

  1. Congratulations on your little guy! I was wondering if you had delivered since you had been away from your blog for so long. I shared your post it note holder gift idea with my daughter and she made several of them for gifts for co-workers. We loved their simplicity!!
