My Three Sons

It has been a very busy two months since I last wrote on my blog, so, I took a moment to read my last entry. It was written the day before my C - section and I remember all of the hope and fear I was feeling about the birth of my third child. Needless to say, as I sit here typing this, he got here safely and I survived the entire ordeal.
Well, actually, I somewhat hate to admit it, but, 'ordeal' might not be the right word for the experience. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive team of nurses before and after the surgery. They knew of my blood clotting history and went above and beyond to take care of me, physically AND emotionally. To them, it might have been just another day at work, but, to me, it was like having a huge cheering section during a very rough game. So, kudos, to all nurses and the wonderful ones I met that day.
Now, it's time to brag about the baby! A big and beautiful baby boy! He is healthy, happy, and an absolute joy to be around. It was a long and bumpy road getting to this point. There were times I didn't think it was possible and the injections I had to take were painful, but, it proved to be all worth it in the end.
My four year old has taken a little encouragement to pass on the 'little brother' title to our new baby, but, he is (gradually) warming up to having him around.
My six year old, well, two little brothers into it now, considers himself to be a pro at this and I have to agree with him! It is truly heartwarming to see the interest and devotion he has for his new brother.
So, I guess you could say I am very in love with and proud of my THREE sons! They inspire me, exhaust me, amaze me, humble me, and, complete me. I am truly blessed.
