Coming up for air!

Well, I decided to show some love to my poor little ignored blog! It has been a crazy almost 7 weeks, as you can imagine. Alexander Daniel was born March 27th. He was 8 pounds 14.5 ounces and 20.5 inches long. I was induced again, but this experience was so much better than my induction with Benjamin. For one the induction took less than 24 hours instead of 2 days. And secondly, my epidural actually worked! We went in Thursday at 9:00 p.m. The induction started about midnight. Friday early afternoon I was checked and I was 4 cm dilated. The pitocin was started and the contractions started fast and furious. I got my epidural and all was right with the world. I dilated fairly quickly and by 8:44 p.m. Friday night he was born.

Waiting for Alexander's arrival...

So the last 7 weeks have been filled with lots of adjusting. Benjamin has taken the arrival of his little brother so well. I am so proud of what a big boy he has been!

Well, that is it in a very small nutshell. I hope to update the blog more about my crazy life with my 3 boys! :)
