Baby Jaxon is here!!!

He’s here!!! What a difference a day makes…Wednesday we spent the day getting ready for the induction, and Thursday we went from 4 to 5 kids- just like that! I know I’ve done this a few times, but the miracle is just as great on the fifth one. That whole little living being was inside of me two days ago- crazy! Our precious little guy came at 9:04am- just two hours after the Doctor broke my water. I started hurting about 7:30 and only had to endure an hour and a half…way better than the last delivery! Other than not having an epidural, I couldn’t have asked for a better delivery. Troy was a champ (as always) and my mom and sisters were there, as well as two awesome doulas (the hospital staff let us bend the rules on the number in the room) . Everything went great, and as you can imagine when I was looking at his cute little face my first question was “Is it a boy?” Sure enough- still a boy and a very big boy- he was 9 lbs and 8 oz and 21.5 inches long. After hearing his weight, I felt very validated that I couldn’t walk for those last few weeks! He’s the sweetest little cuddly baby and the girls are so thrilled to have a brother! Here’s some pictures of the big day, and hopefully, I’ll get around to updating things again soon!

Christi! You are amazing! I still can't believe how great you look...and the fact that you just pushed out (naturally, too) a 9.8 lb baby! You are my hero! He is a chunk...and I wouldn't have it any other way. That little boy is all ready to take on 4 older sisters...and will be ready to play Lacrosse before you know it. I love the picture of Troy. He looks so complete now. :)

Congrats to you all! I'm so happy for you and the safe, healthy delivery. You are such a dear friend and I'm so grateful to have you in my life.

I'll keep you posted about our little Lola. I'm going to be induced on March 5th...so these little ones will only be 2 weeks apart. You've already "lapped" me...so I'm glad I'm not too far behind.

Hugs and kisses to all!
Amy

Oh my gosh!! He is SOOO Cute!!! Not that I would expect anything less. He's almost as big as Logan. I can't wait to email him and tell him Troy has a boy!!!!Well, he has a few YM to claim already. I bet as soon as Logan gets home he'll be over there tossing a ball with Jaxon. Congratulations!! You done good girl. I can't wait to come hold him. Seems like I was just holding Gracie yesterday....
