A baby is a gift, a gift from a bub.

Probably the most interesting thing that happened in the last three months was that I had a baby.  Theodore Dirk Vos was born on May 11 at 9:45 AM.  He weighed 9lb 11oz.  He beat my next biggest baby by 3 ounces!  His labor was virtually painless because I had a really awesome epidural.  The hospital stay was restful and I was so thrilled to come home to the rest of my babies.  Over the past three months, Teddy has brought our family much joy.  He nurses like a champ.  Sometimes just too often!  He is very wiggly.  Even in his sleep he wiggles.  He is fussier than any of my other babies.  This makes it to take him places.  Other babies I've had will sleep in their buckets for hours while I shop or volunteer or clean or swim.  Teddy will not do this.  I am not able to do things like I am used to.  I spend a lot of time rocking him.  I haven't been able to do my calling in three months because I can't take him with me and I can't leave him home.  It's been a little frustrating.  But I'm not going to complain.  He's a wonderful boy and I love him!  We all do.

He was definitely made from the Vos mold. He is going to fit right in. I am so happy for you. I hope he stops crying soon, though.
