baby is here!

Meet our darling little man! Our little mexican jumping bean, aka JB, for the purposes of this blog!

He took my eviction notice seriously (how sweet of him to listen to his mama!) and came out a week early!  

He took me by surprise that night - I woke up at 2:30, felt weird, decided to shower, wash my hair, shave my legs, google what on earth labor pains felt like (you know, all of the important things one does while in labor!) Then I woke up D told him it was baby day, and he needed to eat so we could get to the hospital soonish.  After D's quick bite (all while I'm contractioning away) of canadian bacon, eggs, and toast (he doesn't fool around, at least one of us was well nourished and ready for labor!) we made our way to the hospital around 6:30.  

At the hospital I quickly learned it is impossible to speak another language while in labor. I think my spanish skills reverted back to spanglish and my phrases were 'donde my drug-o' and 'yo in pain-o'.  

By 9 that morning our little man was out and we were parents - ready or not!  

So far, this is one awesome baby!  I know, everyone says that about their kid.  But this little man loves sleep, wakes up to eat, and hardly ever cries.  So, I guess we will keep him around for a while longer!
