Since Nicholas and I get to stay home from church for a few weeks, I am hoping to catch up on my blog and pictures and nice quite Sunday projects like that. We'll see how it goes. :)
Today's update on our little family of four could be summed up in one word. Sleep. We are trying to get as much of it as we can get. As you can see from the following pictures.
I was able to come home from the hospital on Friday, YEAH!!!!!!! I can't stand being cooped up. I don't care how much hospital food has changed (It was really good you could order whatever you wanted, the pizza was amazing!!!!!) I was ready to come home. I missed my little Anna. I missed my bed. I missed my shower. I just like being home and feeling somewhat independent. It has been so nice to be home, to play and read stories and color with my little girl again. We started setting up Christmas stuff yesterday. We didn't get very far, but at least the tree is up.

Anna is getting use to having a little brother around and Devin and I are learning how to tag-team life with two kids. There is a lot to figure out. Meal time, bath time, and bed time are tricky. Any suggestions on how to make these run smooth would be greatly appreciated. We have a perfect bedtime routine with Anna, that both Devin and I are involved in. We love it. But how do you do that with two kids with two different bedtime schedules?? (Not that Nicholas even has a set schedule yet.)

That's about it. Maybe I should get some sleep instead of taking time to blog. I'm funny, getting things done on my to do list makes me feel just as good as a nap. ...sometimes.

Welcome Nicholas

Nicholas Olsen Baldwin was born last night (November 23rd) at 9:43pm.  My water broke at 6:30pm and by 9pm we had decided that a c-section would be the best thing to do. 
Here are his stats: 
Weight--9lbs 1oz
Length--20 inches
Head--37 centimeters
We are both doing great.  Trying to get as much sleep as possible.  Anna is pretty excited about her "little" brother too.
