New Baby Pics from St. Patrick’s Day Through This Sensational Sunday!

189 Comments 8296 views

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Sensational Sunday to present "The Baby"…

That’s right! Little Bean decided to join us a little early. On 7:35PM St. Patrick’s Day I was holding my new, 5lb 8oz, 19.5 inch baby boy…

I’ll give the whole story in tomorrow’s "pregnancy" update but to make a long story short, my water broke 3:30AM on March 17. A few hours later I found myself strolling around the hospital waiting patiently…

then…. PUSH…

BABY!

I’m still in a bit of shock. For all my preparation and talk about wanting him to come early it threw me off THIS early. I mean just look at him…

He’s SO small! Especially compared to my first who was 8lb 6oz.

Speaking of, he’s handling all this pretty well but it’s been, of course, a bit overwhelming for him. So we’ve been keeping it fun, for all our sake’s…

Oh! and both my little boys look SO much a like. Seriously… look at this…

:)

All in all we are all doing great…

The only one NOT affected by our new edition…

She’s been cool as a cucumber. ;)

My daughter was also born on 3/17 at 3:17 :) We just celebrated her 3rd birthday! St. Patty’s Day will forevermore be my favorite holiday!

    Congratulations! I was just thinking last night that we hadn’t heard from you in a while and I wondered if you were off having a baby :)

    I have a St Patrick’s Day baby as well- he just turned 2 on Thursday. His first birthday party was so much fun. Now I’ve decided he won’t have another St Patty’s theme birthday party until he turns 21 :)

    Enjoy and get some sleep.

    (In a completely unrelated related note, my oldest came early 36/4 and my youngest came on time, 39wks to the day with a scheduled c section. These babies…so unpredictable. Who would’a thunk it ;) )
