Baby Chad Ethan, First Three Weeks!

Well after what seemed like an eternity, I finally gave birth to our 4th baby on July 22nd, 2008! I couldn't wait for one more second to be done with the pregnancy and hold our new baby. The labor was quick and easy, thank goodness. Everything was perfect!!! Chad is so tiny and so precious. Like with all my other children, I did not sleep at all the first few nights because I just held him and stared at him all night. I love kissing his little hands, feet, just love kissing him period! New borns are just so amazing and absolutely a blessing! I'm just so in love! He's fitting in great with our family. The girls just adore him. They all just love him so much, and fight over who gets to hold him. I have been in the kitchen and looked up at the top of the stairs with Chloe holding him! My heart nearly stopped. She was so proud that she got to pick him up. Buffy is as usual, super helpful and very loving to her new brother. She is my little helper. Piper has been, surprisingly, so sweet to the baby as well. There has not been any signs of jealously at all. She runs to get diapers and is constantly kissing the baby.

Chad Ethan have been a really good baby. He just eats and sleeps most of the time. He has not been fussy at all. I do hope he stays that way.

As for me, I am adjusting to having a boy, having four children! I am still in amazement and just elated that we finally have a son. I sleep less now than ever before. It's all worth it though. I cannot complain, I have been greatly blessed.
