Baby is here!!!

Baby #3 is a............

BOY!!!!!!! Our sweet little man Elliot arrived on September 28th at 12:31pm, weighing 7lbs 7oz and measuring 20" long. He is perfect and healthy, and we all just adore him :)

My repeat c-section and tubal ligation went well. I had a fantastic anesthesiologist and recovery nurse that made a huge difference in how I felt right after surgery. It was the best I have felt after any of my c-sections. Recovery at home has been pretty good, besides the migraines returning. It was an emotional adjustment for me again being away from the kids and losing the strong bond that Cora and I had. It's getting better, but I can't pick her up until 6 weeks post partum.

Elliot latched on great from the beginning and exceeded the weight gain he needed at his second doctor appointment. He is a joy and I really am loving this newborn stage we get to experience one last time, even at 3 am when I'm up changing another poopy diaper while being peed on :) Our family is complete and this stage of our lives is done. It's bittersweet to be done with pregnancy forever, but I am really enjoying our family and looking forward to all the upcoming holidays with three kids!
