We are home, safe, warm and hearts full – because look who has arrived:
Michael Alexander Villa (#MAV) has hopped his way into our hearts. Melted my soul and has taken my breath away just about every second I look at him. Evan is an outstanding, loving, caring, kind, excited big brother and we are just quiet blissful and thankful right now.
Labor was great, and I can’t wait to share the [short] birth story with everyone *hopefully* later today – while it is still fresh in my brain. But I’m feeling quiet good – a bit sore and VERY VERY CRAMPY – geez! They warned me cramping would be worse the 2nd time (and even worse with each consecutive pregnancy) but WOWZA! Just when I think I feel good I still get hit with a fresh set of the cramps and man do they curl my toes!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it 100x more, the support around us has been tremendous. My friends have been just the best, and my family too – checking in, sending love and just being so amazing. Life is good. I’m sharing some snuggles and need to grab something to eat (nursing really makes me HUNGRY) haha – so I’m off to do that and hopefully can pop back on with some details on the little dude.
For now – sending love and light to everyone. God bless, chat soon.
Mommy and Michael (cuddled so perfectly on my chest)
