Baby Ward Is Here

pregnant Desi

My little MAN came….

   Desi and sweet baby Cooper

We didn’t find out what we were having at the ultra sound.  It was such a fun surprise when they announced another little BOY!!! He was born on October 22.  His labor was a little different than my others.  I had to be induced for complications, WITHOUT an epidural.  My platelet count was too low.  My two before I didn’t have an epidural, but my body went into labor on it’s own.  My labors were both really fast, but with Baby Cooper I was on pitocin for 6 1/2 hours at the full dose they could give me and I didn’t dilate at all!  They broke my water and he came crazy fast after that.  I had him in an hour.  It was intense, but SO worth it.  It’s a miracle to me how perfect babies come.  With their tiny fingernails and toes.  Holding him feels like a little piece of heaven.

I am SO happy he is here!!  Newborns are the best.  I can’t get enough of him.  My plan is to just hold him as much as I can and let all the little things slide.  The more babies I have the more you realize it is a blink and they are not tiny anymore.  I feel so sentimental about my kids growing up.  I wish I could have them little enough to sit on my lap and cuddle always.

He is the sweetest baby.  I feel so lucky to be a mom.  It’s such a gift even on the hard days.

    Congratulations, Desi! Your little man, Ward, is adorable. I too loved holding my little ones as much as possible. What joy they bring into your life and yes, time goes by so fast. I have 12 grandchildren now and enjoy every moment I’m privileged to have with them. Have a blessed day with your darling family and thank you for the yummy carrot cookie recipe.

    Your plan is perfect. Absorb all that precious baby love. I am so grateful that I was able to hold and snuggle and cuddle my daughter all the time. She’s in preschool now and it’s shocking to me that she’s not a toddler anymore. I know I’m not having another child so now I’m crashing my friend’s party and snuggling her baby boy every chance I get.

    Congrats! He’s a doll, so adorable. I hope is going well now.
    I had 3 boys. They are a good group of guys, but they certainly could keep a mom busy. I now have a grandson, 13 years old.
    God has truly blessed you.
