Introducing Isaac Matteo!

He is here!!! Isaac was born on July 8 at 4:22am. Labour started at around 7am on July 7. After 18 hours of labouring (most of it at home) I couldn't stand the pain anymore and got the epidural. Isaac was posterior, he never truly dropped and his heart rate started to drop, he was getting exhausted and stressed, and so was I. After a few more hours of trying to see if he'd drop we all decided it was getting too scary and he was not coping well. So he arrived into the world via a c-section. I am still dealing with it all, and once I have more time I'll post the long version of his birth story. But for now, I am happy to report we are doing well. I am so very grateful and feel very blessed to be holding my baby boy! Maddie is an amazing big sister. She is so helpful and loving with him...I am so proud of her. I know the next few months will be a time of adjustment, with many ups and downs, but I am really looking forward to it because I know they aren't little for very long.
