Hello friends and readers! You may have noticed that the last week has been really quiet here and on our social media channels.
Well, we’ve been busy and quite frankly… plumb distracted not to mention exhausted! 🙂
Remember when we announced that we were expecting a few months ago? Well, our precious little guy is here!
He arrived on March 31st, 2015 at 9:34 p.m. He weighed 6 lbs. 4 oz. and 20 inches long (our longest baby). He arrived by necessary c-section. He is a bit early, but even with that, he is perfect! He’s passed all of his tests with flying colors and is a perfectly healthy baby according to the pediatrician.
We think he’s adorable, sweet and so snuggly. We can’t get enough of him!
We have all been enjoying the love, joy, sweetness, new baby smell, and the adorable newborn milestones and firsts. The camera is constantly rolling and with five other excited kids; he’s being spoiled by lots of kisses and snuggles all day (and night) long!
The only thing is…this is baby #6 for us, and my first baby in my 30’s and we have simply forgotten how that lack of sleep affects you. But it’s okay – turning into mumbling zombies is totally worth it. Alex is losing just as much sleep because he’s helping this recovering c-section mom get baby out and take care of him at night with my limitations, but I couldn’t ask for a better husband. 🙂
We will share his birth story later, but at least wanted to give you this exciting announcement and the reason why The Thrifty Couple seemingly disappeared for a short time. 🙂
Hopefully we still start getting back to our regularly scheduled programming in the coming week.
Also, watch for the birth story and more pictures of him and our whole family soon!
