More updates

James shared the vital info about Jonathan yesterday, so today will be some of the other things.

He is a happy little guy and is a great eater. He only gets upset when he is getting his bum changed, but can be quickly made happy again. He likes to eat and then spend time looking around and cuddling. He is also a talker in his sleep and likes to babble.

I am doing pretty good as well. I have some really great nurses and they are taking good care of me. It took me a few kids to get the routine down, but I know now that if I take meds before I need them, then I can prevent a lot of the pain. I took everything they gave me yesterday and spent much of the day flying as high as a kite :) I also have learned by now that the nursery is awesome and to send the kid there. I was able to get a lot of sleep last night and today thanks to the wonderful nurses.

The girls were able to come over and meet Johnny today and they had a lot of fun holding and talking to him. We need to get Bella used to new pronouns though as she kept calling him a her/she. It was cute to see her concerned for him though. MacKayla and Annika really loved holding Johnny and spent a long time doing so. They were also excited to see my scar and they cant wait until they can count the number of bandages on it. Annika has especially been fascinated by the whole c-section procedure.

Without further wait, here are some pictures of Johhnyboy and family.

Snuggling up with mom.
Stretching out, he is a long little guy and I can tell you that he spent a lot of time stretching these last few weeks. He was ready to really get out and move.
With her cast freshly off, MacKayla was loving holding her little brother.
Annika also very happy to hold Johnny.
Bella spending some time with her brother. I love the hair, I think I need to teach the girls how to comb her hair so that dad doesn't need to.
All of my beautiful kids together for the first time. I am one lucky mom!
Johnny spent his first hour of life sucking on dad's finger while mom was getting stitched up and still finds a way to get dad to give it to him whenever they are cuddling.
Not the most flattering picture, but I don't think you are supposed to look ready to meet the world right after birth. At least he is cute to look at.

Congratulations LaTisha and James. He is a cutie. I love that he already has baby rolls. Both my kids had skinny little chicken legs. Love you
