Today is my due date, but our little Oliver arrived early on Monday, May 2.  He is doing well and we are thriving as a little family of three now! Hopefully I will be able to update more when I am less busy! :)

Thanks everyone!  :)  We have really been having so much fun taking care of this little guy.  It is so amazing that he came early as I thought for sure he would be overdue!  I am not planning on posting my birth story, but I will just say this.  It went quick! I labored at home for 12 hours with regular contractions that felt like bad menstrual cramps, and then they got closer together and we left for the hospital. When I showed up at the hospital the contractions were 4 minutes apart and they checked me to find out that I was 4 cm with a bulging bag of waters.  Four hours after checking in, little Oliver was born.  My second phase of labor was only 10 minutes long with 6 pushes and he was here.  No epidural, as my labor moved too fast, but looking back on it, I am so glad it went that way!  It was what I originally wanted.  Oliver is so easy to take care of, breastfeeding is going well, with the occasional rough feeding, but he is gaining weight and going through lots of diapers. :)
