Ty finally made his appearance right on schedule this week and I cannot even begin to put in words how my heart has expanded to love my son. Everyone told me it could happen but, I just wasn't sure how I could love another child as much as I love Kinley...then, the second they put him in my arms, I did. He is only 4 days old and I already cannot imagine my life without him. I just wanted to quickly get a few pictures posted from the last few days. This is by no means all the pics we took or all the pics you will see...but, here are just a few and a little bit of story to go along with them.
We left the for the hospital a little before 5am on Wednesday morning.
I got all checked in and started getting induced around 7:15 and visitors started to arrive around 8....broke my water at 8:30 and he was here by 10:17. Overall, it took a total of 3 hours. Very quick....so quick that my epidural did not really work because I was progressing faster than the medicine could take over. It worked some..and I am sure that it was better than no drugs at all..but, I could definitely feel everything...and I did make it through. Thankfully, it was quick.
Martin was amazing...as usual. Ty had the cord wrapped around his neck just like Kinley did and though it was not quite as dramatic as last time...I hate that stinkin cord and without Martin there to keep me totally calm, I would have lost it. I can't explain the easiness and peacefulness that comes with knowing your doctor so well. I am so very thankful for him.
Mendy made these fantastic shirts for everyone who came to the hospital. So, so cute.
Kinley was fully entertained all day with lots of her favorite people.
Ty had an endless number of visitors at the hospital and we feel so blessed to have so many wonderful family and friends that live nearby.
Diana brought the party with her....as usual. So fun.

One of Ty's namesakes...my Dad, Mark Anson.
I know there will be a million pictures of Kinley checking out her little brother in our future. It was so much fun to see her just light up around him and be so excited to check him out.
Lots of snuggle time...
And yesterday, we brought the party home.
His cute outfit with World War II planes that we brought him home in and he promptly pooped on. Such a boy!
Thank You, Lord, for a healthy delivery and baby boy. We feel beyond thankful that you have entrusted us with Ty as our precious son. He is an absolute joy and we will not take for granted the blessing that he is.
