He's Here!!!





Introducing...
Crew Van Audenart
Wednesday, May 11, 2011
at 1:10am
7 pounds, 1 ounce
just over 19 inches long







I can't believe it has been almost a week already since we welcomed our little guy into this world. We have all been totally and completely consumed by him...we just can't get enough!! My labour and delivery went really smoothly...in my last post I shared that "coming soon" picture...it turns out Crew was born exactly 12 hours after that picture was taken. I started having contractions around 9:15pm on Tuesday night while watching "Glee" (heehee) and we were at the hospital by 11pm. I was already 6 cm dilated, so they gave me the epidural by 11:30pm and he was born just after 1 in the morning. I was soooo relieved that it was all done and over with and that I didn't have to be in labour all night long...thank you for making it so easy, Crew!!



So now we are home and adjusting to life as a family of 6. His big sisters cannot get enough of him and daddy is pretty darn happy to have another boy in this house. I am just so very grateful to have my sweet little baby boy home, safe and sound. He is the best and life is good.



Now...off to attempt to get dressed! (wink)

Congratulations, Talia! BTW, I took your Baby's First Year class back when my brother Mack had his first daughter, Lily, in June 2007. Your daughter Gabby was a little older and you used her Baby's First Year scrapbook as a guide for the class. Since then Mack had another daughter, as did you...and just recently, on May 10th, he and wife Melanie had their first son! I am still using your class materials for their Baby's First Year books, and I love them. Congratulations to you and thanks for such a wonderful class, which I would recommend to anyone.

WOW!!!! congratulations, Talia!!
I love having a tiny baby to hold and snuggle! But I love when I'm not pregnant anymore! I just love when that part is over! I saw your mom at Superstore the day you had him, so we were thinking of you! I hope you are feeling well and can try to find some time to nap!
