New House Update

Well, they have built our house much quicker than we thought they would which is a good thing, but stressful with a newborn at home. Packing has been slow, but hopefully with the older kids in school now I should find some time to do it. We are really excited to start this new chapter in our life and can't wait to move into this house.

Pictures of Sawyer

These are our first few precious moments with our new little bundle of joy, Sawyer Andrew English. It's hard to believe they start out so small.

Sawyer Andrew English

I guess I need to update my blog now that we have had our baby. Sawyer Andrew English was born on July 28, 2010 at 5:52 pm and weighed in at 7 lbs 8oz and was 19.5 inches long. My labor with him was long, as expected, but easy enough. He came out in one contraction with his face up. The doctor and nurses were totally impressed with my pushing skills. I attributed that to the fact that I had done it a few times before (ha ha ha).

He is adjusting to life very well and is eating like a champ. He does good at night so far sleeping for 5 hour stretches. This has helped me to feel human during the day instead of a zombie. My parents are here and my mom has been a tremendous help with my older 3 kids. She has worn them out everyday and kept them entertained.

I will post pictures soon...there are some on FB already if you want to sneak a peak.
