Our perfect little bundle of joy joined us early again and in a pretty fun way as well. Last time Liam decided to come when I was as supposed to be at my baby shower, and Logan was no different. My parents and Tadd Liam and I went up to Lake Tahoe and rented this awesome VRBO place for the weekend in Incline. We hadn't been to Tahoe since January so it was the best last weekend hoorah before baby boy came!
Tadd and I packed up the car and headed to the hospital. When we got there, they admitted us and we waited to get the confirmation that my water broke again! Sure enough, around 2:30, my nurse called my dr and we were planning for baby boys arrival.Being that baby boy was still breech since confirmation that Thursday before we were then heading into planning for a c-section!! My doctor got to the hospital and came to see me and prep me for the procedure and then it was pretty much go time.
Tingly and then numb. Tadd was waiting outside while they got everything prepped. Once the drape was up, and everyone was in positin, Tadd came in and they began the procedure. By 5:00am, our baby boy was welcomed into the world! He let out one cry and then chilled while they did all his exams. I cried as I heard his sweet voice and saw his face. It was so surreal having him out of my belly!
They stitched me up and I went to a recovery area while Tadd stayed with our boy while they checked everything out. His breathing was off a little bit and he had a little heart murmur. But otherwise he was small and healthy. Once they brought him to me, I got to cuddle skin to skin with him while we waited for my numbness to wear off.
We then headed to our post op room where we would stay for the next 3 days! While in recovery Tadd and I decided that we wanted to name him Logan Joseph Barnett, so my dad could
Have his LJ and we wanted to use Joseph for my awesome dad!
As the days wore on in the hospital, Liam warmed up to his baby brother and eventually gave him a kiss. Now that we are home, he is great at being soft and even inviting him to play in his room with him. Liam has been getting lots of attention from nana and papa and mom and Dad and aunties are coming into town and will no doubt give him even more attention, which has made for a great transition for our family!
The first few days home have been pretty good and not too bad of an adjustment, just been to the sr a few times to check jaundice levels and then making sure that I am not overdoing it since I just had surgery less than a week ago.
We are extremely lucky and feeling blessed to have two healthy and amazing boys and are so thankful for family and friends and all the support as we became a family of four! Here is to a wonderful holiday season of 2016 and to spending time with the people that mean most to us!!!
