NEWlife

We brought our precious Dealey into the world Saturday June, 16 2007 @ 4:48 pm. With such an "interesting" pregnancy we expected labor & delivery to be nothing short of CRAZY! However we were pleasantly surprised I went into labor and my water broke on Friday night at 11:30 and by noon on Saturday I had my patosin (sp?) drip and my epidural and just shy of 5 hours later he was here. I only had to push for about an hour and 15 minutes and it was surprising pleasant and much easier than I expected it to be. Our Dealey is as cute as can be with a good amount of hair, it looked dark at first but after his bath we looked again and it's more a light brown with blonde highlights....Anyways, I feel like I could ramble on for hours about sweet D but I'll stop for now and share some of his first pics........Dealey weighed in at 5lbs 15 oz & 19 1/4" long!

Matt and I just before we started pushing...


Me and Dealey stealing away a few moments to gaze at each other...

Matt loving up on Dealey, he was so happy and such a great coach, I couldn't have done this without him by my side...

Dealey bright eyed and alert....he's got some big eyes, I suppose that's my doing but they're going to gorgeous these big blue eyes are going to melt hearts...


Dealey has huge feet and long toes just like his Dad....

Sweet D sleeping and hanging with me....


There will be billions more pictures as we enter into this new life so check back often to stay up to date with how Dealey is growing into an amazing little dude, our move to NY and many more adventures! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEALEY JAMES!

He is gorgeous and I am so glad that all three of you are doing well. I am so thrilled that you now will all be able to be together at last. I know how hard that is to be apart. Love you guys and look forward to watching little Dealy grow.
