Surprise!

On June 7 my mom and I were supposed to make a little road trip to Ikea and pick up all the stuff I still needed for the playroom.  Instead I called her at 6 AM to tell her that I thought I was in labor and she needed to come watch Little Man while my husband and I went to my OB. 

I spent about half an hour hooked up to a monitor and we were sent to the hospital to deliver.  Baby #2 was arriving a month early!


His weight was fantastic (6lbs. 7oz.) considering how early he was and we are so thankful for that!  He had to spend an extra eight days in the hospital at the special care nursery until he could eat well on his own. The picture above was taken in the nursery while he still had his feeding tube. 

He's been home for a week now and I'm settling into life with two little ones a little earlier than I expected.

Congratulations, he is beautiful! Enjoy these early weeks and try to get some rest. My son just turned 3 months and I feel just like we brought him home yesterday.

Love his nursery, I jumped on the chevron band wagon too for my sons nursery and plan on doing the exact same to our curtains. I hung the white grommet curtains from Target, I just need to find the time to hem the fabric to the bottom.
