Michael Jr made his grand appearance to the world on January 6th, 2008 @ 11:45 AM. Weighing in at 6 lbs 5 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

You know, its weird how you wait and wait for 9 long months to see your little baby. And you cant understand how you love him so much without ever seeing him, or being able to hold him. Granted, you feel him move, kick, and occasionally hiccup inside you. But its so surreal. And then when they finally put him in your arms, you cant help but cry because he is so beautiful and perfect in every way possible. You finally understand why you loved him so much and why you'll continue to love him for the rest of his life. --- Its so amazing!

We got home from the hospital on the 8th, and it has been smooth waters ever since. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful, well behaved baby. He rarely cries, and he doesnt even keep us up all night [knock on wood]. I really cant imagine what life would be like now, without him. This is the first time in a while that i've felt like part of a family again. And I absolutely love it. It was a hard 9 months, and alot of hard work. But everything I went through was completely worth it.

I really miss feeling him kick my insides, and being able to feel him move. But Im sure that we'll be going down this 9 month road again soon. After all, we're only 1 down. We still have 3 more to go! :]

Before I was a Mom I never learned the words to a lullaby.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Drooled on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple little grin.
I never sat up for hours watching a baby sleep.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.
I had never known the warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.
