Patrick James

Today around 2:29, Meg gave birth to Patrick James Shannon. He was 7lbs 1 ounce, 20 inches long and healthy.

I’d write more, but I’m exhausted. Check out the rest of the pictures here.

One Day…

Last day until we start this whole baby adventure over again. And I am glad we’re almost done. I’m not sure how much more Meg can take. She’s been pregnant for almost 2 years straight, and she needs a break. Not that taking care of a newborn is much of a break, but at least she’ll be able to bend over again.

When things settle down tomorrow after all of the hoopla is over with, I’ll hopefully get around to uploading some pictures of the new baby for everyone.

Wish us luck tomorrow!

2 Days Left

2 Only two days left! We are quickly approaching the day when Michael will no longer be an only child. He had his 15 months of attention, now he’s going to have to share it. Not that there isn’t plenty of attention to go around with all of the Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Great Grandparents, and all of the old ladies we meet at the mall who just have to comment on how cute Michael is.

We’ve also taken just a few pictures to start off the October album. Enjoy.


Three Days Left!

Days To Go!

I am not even sure what to write or how to update today. I am going back and forth from being in a calm zen state to panicking about what needs to be done before the baby comes. Then I begin to freak out about what to do when the baby comes, how Michael will handle it, how in the world we will handle, and of course all the fears that come with pending labor.

Labor, that is a whole ‘nother thing to worry about. Michael’s labor went really well. Tim’s story varies slightly from mine, but all in all Michael was born healthy and I was okay. They induced me at 10:30 am and I had Michael at 3:13 pm. I made it through without the epidural and only had IV meds. A first time mom couldn’t have asked for a better labor. What I worry about now is, can a girl be so lucky to have two easy and fast labors… it just doesn’t seem to be in the cards. I guess we will just have to wait and see. If I had my way Tim would be by my side and we would have the same nurse we did last time. I know I can count on Tim, but I don’t think we can request Nurse Stephanie as if we were requesting a booth at a restaurant. Not sure, but I don’t think hospitals work that way 😉

I guess the best way to describe the state we are all in right now is a really edgy state of denial. I have yet to really grasp the whole having another baby thing but one thing I know for sure is my hormones are making me really hard to live with! If I wasn’t carrying his baby, I would feel really bad for Tim!
