Hi there! It's been a while friends! Our lives have completely changed since my last post. First of all, we found out we were expecting a little boy in March at our gender reveal party. Finding out the gender with all of our closest friends and family was absolutely one of the most exciting times in our lives. We had no clue because we had the ultrasound tech put the gender in an envelope. One of my Mom's best friends was the only person who knew because she had to put the confetti in the balloon. It was amazing!! Once we found out we would be having a boy, it was go time for shopping and preparing for his arrival. Now that I look back on things, I probably went way overboard. But, he is our first baby and what the heck!
Fast forward seven months and here we are today! We moved from San Diego to Virginia Beach in June. We are loving our new city but definitely miss our old one! We bought a beautiful house here in Virginia and look forward to all the memories to come. We welcomed our handsome little boy on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at 5:12 AM. He weighed 7 lbs 8 ounces. I labored for 25 hours and got all the way to 9 cm before my body shut down and didn't want to finish the job. Jerk. I was given pitocin to speed things along and within a few hours, we were welcoming our little one into the world! Everyone says it but I really never knew how much you could love someone until I held him in my arms. My whole entire world changed at that very moment!
In the six short weeks that we have become parents, we have consumed outrageous amounts of coffee and functioned on minuscule amounts of sleep - I don't even know how I am typing this right now. But, it's great. Our life is wonderful and we are so blessed. Parenthood is incredible and I can't wait for all things to come! Well, I think that's it for now. I need to go give Daddy a break! Cheers friends.
Welcome to the world, Andrew Layne!
PS. Penelope adores him! XO
