Hey girls,
this is just a run by post .....

Samuel Ray was born October 1st at 1:59am, he weighed 8lbs 2oz and was 19 3/4 inches long! We had a great home birth, and I hope to share the details soon.

Samuel is a precious baby and I'm amazed how quickly a mother's love can be magnified as she keeps having more children . This one has me loving them all even more..

My body is healing very well, and baby is gradually adjusting to life outside the womb.. last night he even slept a little ... haha! He still loves to sleep a lot in the daytime.. and may or may not let me rest at night.

So here's pics of my new little Samuel :

First pics of me with all my boys!

If you want to see more pictures I've started a photobucket folder for Samuel that I hope to keep adding more pics to for a while. For now there are some random pictures of Samuel and our family from his first few days.

Maybe soon I can write up his birth story, I think it will be good to think through it all and write it out .

And of course I am attempting to blog about things.. but haven't had much time for it as yet. But I do have a couple of posts on there about Samuel at least . http://raegaeddert.com/family

Well this post has been interrupted many times now.... ha so I guess I'd better get it finished before I forget about it!

The boys btw love their new brother, but are giving me some awful jealous looks, and misbehavior is starting up..... so in other words they are acting quite normally considering the circumstances LOL!

Catch ya later girls,
~Rae~

Tara I completely agree.. he looks soooo much like my 2 yr old did as a newborn.. except Samuel is blonde and Ian was born with dark hair (that has now turned a sandy blonde lol). But then there is a strong resemblance in all our boys, I think we must be one of those families that it's just really obvious they are siblings LOL!

Thanks for the congrat's .. oh and btw is there any particular thread started yet for those of us who have given birth to share how things are going/chat??

Congratulations! : I loved reading your birth story. That is the one thing I missed having to have Ezekial in the hospital, holding him right after he was born and nursing him right away. He was early and they were worried and wanted to make sure his lungs were developed. So after they let me look at him they whisked him away. I was used to having my babies at home. I am thankful though that despite not getting my home birth, my son was born healthy and fully developed just small. I am glad you were able to have a home birth.
