Welcome to the World, Little Baby E...

Welcome to the world and happy birthday, little baby E...

Edward Thomas was born on May 30 at 6:45pm. He was 6lb. 11oz. and 21 inches. We're all completely and totally head over heels for him.

Mama and baby are both doing well.

I'm sure, by now, that most of you probably realized that the little guy was born and that I was taking a sort of "babymoon" - definitely not intentionally, I promise.

It took exactly one day after he was born to realize that mamahood was a 24-7 job. Lol... Someone is a really slow eater, so most of my time and effort has gone to around-the-clock feedings. By the time we finish eating and get changed, it's time to start all over again, so... the good news is that we've already gained a few ounces since we were discharged from the hospital and we're starting to eat a little more at a time. That definitely makes this mama happy.

Now, it's just a matter of really getting to know eachother.

I make no promises as to how the next few weeks will go. I need to start transitioning into my new role as a mama and I'm not sure how much, if any, time that will leave to focus on anything except the little guy.

I'd like to get my pregnancy album put together and I need to start working on little E's baby book, but again - not sure how that'll work out... I'm also planning to be back sometime this week w/ my third trimester post, which will include the little guy's birth story.

In the meantime, I hope you'll stick with me as I learn how to be both a mama and a scrapbooker. It should definitely be an interesting journey. 

Until then...

Have a great week!
