Our family got a little bigger and a whole lot sweeter four weeks ago.
Meet our precious baby boy, Wells Thomas Webb.
Thursday, September 25
7 pounds, 8 oz
I had a c-section scheduled for Saturday, but our big guy decided to arrive a couple of days early.
I woke up at 5 a.m. in pain and I was in full-blown labor by 6 a.m. We made a mad dash to pack bags, drop of kiddos and drive through rush hour traffic to make it to the hospital.
The pain was real. Shew. Poor Lee did his best to talk me through the contractions. I have a whole new level of respect for mamas who go through the birth experience without any medications. I made it to 5 or 6, and I was struggling.
It was all worth it. I was madly, deeply in love with my baby boy from the moment I saw his face. My heart has never been so full!
I'm not the only one who is crazy about Mister Wells.
His big brother and sister think he is the absolute best.
My baby has a head of dark hair. And the fullest lips. Long fingers and toes. Can you tell I'm kinda smitten?:)
We are so thankful that for the first time in our Webbie babies, we were able to ditch the blue lights (for jaundice) before leaving the hospital.
We are home now, enjoying lots of snuggles and not a lot of sleep at night, mostly because Wells is struggling with reflux. I feel so bad when I hear him spitting up and swallowing milk back down. Nobody wants to hear their baby in pain!
Despite the exhaustion, we are filled with joy and gratitude for our three babies.
