He is GEORGEOUS! He reminds me of my brother who was almost 11lb at birth. You are truly blessed with a lovely family, and Gracie does look proud to be a big sister. Congratulations on being home and having your family all together again. If you don't mind sharing, please keep us posted about how things are going for you all. Still sending lots of goodness your way, and I do hope you are being loved and supported IRL.

Sarah, he is so beautiful and alert!! And SO big! He was as big at birth as my DD was at 6 weeks, and DD was not a petite baby! I love the picture of him looking up at grandma... his eyes are beautiful.

Do let us know how things are going.. Gosh, from the pictures I'd say the little guy is doing just fabulous! Gracie looks like she is settling in as well!

Congrats!

An update for you all...

Let's see, birth was pretty fast labor-wise, we had a severe shoulder dystocia, meconium aspiration, lost the heartbeat for half a minute or so, he didn't try to breathe on his own for nearly 45 min. Asa Gilbert was 11lb 8oz several hours later, after 5-6 meconium diapers, a helicopter ride, and being stabilized in NICU. (actually he was stable when he got there, and started seizing in the first 20 minutes after arrival.) I had a 1st degree skin-only tear, but a partially ruptured symphysis and a dislocated tailbone. I did lose about a liter of blood, so ended up having 2 transfusions.
Asa went from 20+ hours straight of screaming and seizing, to nonresponsive to anything, but after a week was nursing and released. We've been seeing doctors since, I swear, every one in the state.

Anyways, now have a month-old on anticonvulsants just to be safe, physical therapy twice a day, weekly ped. visits, and a very rowdy 2 year old.

Holy carp Sarah! What pure heck you are going through!! Sorry i haven't replied sooner; I've been praying for Asa though. Glad you can get out of there for awhile.

You have my thoughts & prayers as you get through this.

Just remember Sarah -

This is not your fault.

You have plenty of company... this happens to very good people much more often than it should.

You're not alone. And you are strong enough to do this.

I am so, so sorry about your husband's betrayals. I wish you all the strength in the world as you go forward from here.

Oh man Sarah - I am so increadibly sorry.

What the f is it with some people!??!?

I also found out my H was cheating during my second pregnancy (wrote all about it in my blog).

I wish I could give you a hug.

Your pictures of your children are beautiful.

Thinking of you,
Rebecca
