Enlightening blog by Jamie Deen about his wifes 2nd delivery
Guess what! Iâ€™m a daddy again!
Matthew James Deen was born Wednesday before last, and we came home on that Thursday. Brooke did so well. You know, Jack was a cesarean. He had low birth movement, so we had to go and get him three weeks early. But Matthew decided to stay in until the bitter end. He was born on Brookeâ€™s due date. We thought he was going to come a few weeks early, but we are so thankful to God that he stayed in there and didnâ€™t come out until it was time. Heâ€™s a perfectly beautiful baby boy. Brooke was able to able to deliver through a VBAC, which is a vaginal birth after a cesarean, something like thatâ€¦
Anyway, we were able to not have to do the cesarean, and we were super thankful for that. We were able to come home the next day, and Brookeâ€™s up and movinâ€™ around. Weâ€™ve been a busy little family. Itâ€™s amazing what you can forgetâ€¦itâ€™s been almost five years since Jack was born. Did you know you can actually go on two, or three, or four hours of sleep??
And, itâ€™s especially challenging at this point because Jack Deenâ€™s schedule has not changed. He is just sun up, until super late- 900 mph. I have been doing A LOT of swimminâ€™ lately. Well, he swims. I float.
The baby has slept four or five hours a night for a handful of the nights that weâ€™ve been home, so weâ€™re pretty lucky as far as that goes. I gotta tell you, I was super excited when Jackâ€™s camp started this past Monday. That gives Brooke and I some time in the morninâ€™ to just kinda cuddle up with the baby, keep the house straight, and just sit still. Weâ€™ve been listening to some super peaceful what I call â€śold peopleâ€™sâ€ť music. And it really helps a lot for us to be able to sit and bond with Matthew.
I was on Momâ€™s show a couple of times this past week. Iâ€™m slow to get back to work. Itâ€™s, you know, hard for me to not plug into work. Havinâ€™ a baby is about the only thing thatâ€™ll get me totally unplug. But I wanted to get a short, quick blog out this week, just to let yâ€™all know that the baby is here and he is gorgeous. Christine Hall took some pictures, and theyâ€™re great.
If I canâ€™t do nothinâ€™ else, I can birth some good-lookinâ€™ babies. And just because they both look like my wife, doesnâ€™t mean anything...
Thanks for checkinâ€™ back in, and I hope youâ€™re doing just as well as I am.
As alwaysâ€¦do good things,
