Meet the Newest Addition to Our Family: Ryan Thomas

Good Morning and Happy Monday!!!

First, just want to say thank you to everyone for the wonderful prayers, thoughts, and wishes the last few days.

For those that aren’t aware, my husband, son, and I were thrilled to welcome the newest member to our family, Ryan Thomas Gonzalez, last week.

We are now a family of FOUR!

Ryan is already back to his birth weight is showing early signs of being a good eater and even better sleeper!

I hope to have the whole labor and delivery story on here tomorrow, but wanted to share some pictures and details with you as soon as I had a chance.

Ryan was born at 6:53pm on Wednesday, September 19, 2012.  He weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and is 21″ long.  But most importantly, he is 100% healthy!

Sleeping the day away

My husband and I are walking around our house in a daze – it sounds crazy because we’ve had 9 months to prepare, but we still haven’t come to terms with the idea of having TWO children. It feels amazingly surreal to look at both of our sons and know that they are ours!

So excited to have another boy in our lives

One of the best things so far has been our son’s reaction to Ryan.  He wasn’t interested in him while we were in the hospital but everything seemed to change the  moment we came home.  He is now anxious to “help”, wants to hold him ALL the time, and includes him in everything (sharing his food, giving high “5s”…).

Happy to be a big brother =)

And I am happy that I was able to follow my plan of having a drug-free birth AND did not need any stitches this time around – so suffice to say, I feel fantastic.

Life is pretty much perfect right now for our family of four =)

    2. Congratulations! So glad to hear everything went well and you both are healthy. LOVE the pictures! The last one with both of your boys is sooooo cute!! =D

    3. Congratulations! So stinkin’ cute – all 4 of you! It’s so adorable when the older child wants to help out with the new addition. Glad to hear you are all doing well and, when it’s my time to have kids, I hope I look just as good as you after labor!
