The Eagle Has Landed

Joseph Samuel
born 9:02 am
22nd July 2009
Our earliest baby at 36 weeks 6 days
Our biggest baby at 3105g or 6lb 13.5oz
Sure we lost a lot of blood
But we didn't need a transfusion
We didn't need Special Care
And we didn't need a hysterectomy!
Our biggest hurdle has been Internet Connection in hospital
Our Fashion:
1. The Tiny Man of the Moment in his little hat

2. Ah yes, my hosiery

3. The much-awaited picture of my Sexy Granny Undies. The pair pictured is new & never used, to decrease the gross factor

Cant wait to meet Joseph xoxoxo

Jodie said...

Yay! He's truly beautiful. We here at Long Lived Rock are very excited for you all. Look forward to meeting him :)

P.S. Are you sure he'll approve of the nappy bag?!

Crazy Sister said...

He's perfect!

Hippomanic Jen said...

He is beautiful and reminds my of SmJ at about the same age (although you're telling me he's bigger and I'll believe you).

Glad to hear things went well for you both.

Love your hosiery, but am still not certain about the undies. They do seem shiny and lacy. So far so good. Colour bold. Even better.

I am a little freaked out by seeing a comment from my cousin on your blog. Jen's separate world's are colliding! The end is nigh! Ahhhh!

Hippomanic Jen said...

I can't believe I actually typed a grocer's apostrophe. My apologies.

Hippomanic Jen said...

That's how excited and concerned I am about this whole thing.

Heather said...

Okay, important things first:

CONGRATULATIONS! Joseph is amazing and perfect and beautiful and I'm so relieved to hear that no special care or lady bits removal was required!!! ((((hugs))))

Secondly, @ HJ: Grocer's apostrophe? I've never heard that before but it is hilarious!!!

Lastly, the granny undies: Oh. My.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Jen said...

I have been waiting and waiting and waiting and praying for this post.
I am SO happy for you and that everything went well. He is adorable and those undies......
I hope that you are recovering well and not in too much pain.

Sending lots of virtual hugs and baby cuddles and 'awwwwws' and love and prayers.

Congratulations! He is so precious and perfect. Great photo of the 3 of them, too! Praise God for your safety and his!!! Didn't know that granny undies could be so pretty! Or red!? :0

YEEHAW!!! Joseph is safe and sound and so are you!!!! I'm so happy that everything turned out perfectly! He's a beautiful boy! Anna-Lucia's expressions in the photos are funny! It looks to me as if she can't quite figure this whole mess out! "WHAT? ANOTHER BOY!!!!"

PS....At least the Granny Undies aren't white!!!

Joy said...

Look at your three sweeties. I love his name and he is adorable. Having to wear those granny panties are definitely worth it.
I'm so happy for you and your family. Congratulations and please take it easy and heal.
So glad you didn't have to have the hysterectomy.
Give all your precious sweeties a squeeze from me.


Hairline Fracture said...

Oh, he's gorgeous, just like his big brother and sister! So glad to hear that all went well--I have been praying and I know others were too.

The granny panties are hilarious but you're right, they're actually prettier than most of that style.

GreenJello said...

Oh!!! So beautiful! (The baby, not the granny panties...)

Congrats all around. I'm so happy for you!

stefanie said...
