He's Here! - William Garrett Wright

We welcomed our precious, second son twelve days ago -
William Garrett Wright!
(It's hard to believe that it has already been that long)
He was born at 11:16 a.m.
weighing 7 lbs 4 oz. and was 20 1/2 in. long.

Our family of four!
He was born exactly 3 weeks early.  I'm am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband and amazing family that helped get everything ready for his arrival.  So even though he was quite early, everything was already set up and in order before he was born!  It was such a blessing!  We kinda assumed he might be early.  When we went to the doctor, at the beginning of that week, she said I was already at 2 cm and that it probably wouldn't be much longer.  Jesse worked tirelessly to finish up the plumbing in the house for the shower, toilet, and we have hot water now too!  Soooooo amazing!
 I'm honestly glad we got to live without these simple luxuries for a time, because now we are even more thankful and appreciative than we ever would have been otherwise.

Gavin was so excited throughout the entire pregnancy helping me set things up for baby Garrett. He is such a great big brother!!! He talked every day about wanting to meet the baby in mommy's belly.  When we set up Garrett's baby bed, Gavin ran to get one of his favorite baby blankets to give the baby and put a teddy bear in his bed too saying "he needs it" when he gets here.  Too precious!  He loved hearing Garrett's heartbeat at the doctors appointments and said he sounded like a "choo-choo". :-)

I was very uncomfortable during supper the night before Garrett was born and just couldn't get to sleep when I laid down for the night.  I had random, mild contractions all night long and never did fall asleep.  Finally at about 2 a.m. they started getting consistent and we decided to head on to the hospital just in case.  Chelsey (Jesse's sister; her blog is rosesandliliesblog.wordpress.com) took care of Gavin for us. When we got close to the hospital (which is an hour away from the house) the contractions started getting more intense and closer together.

We had a wonderful experience with all of the nurses and doctors at the hospital.  Everyone was so kind and helpful!  We were very blessed to have a safe and healthy delivery for both mom and baby with no complications!  Praise the Lord!  I was in labor a total of 9 hours, though it felt much faster and seemed to go by very quickly. The contractions weren't really too super painful until the very last hour (just like with Gavin click here to see post about his birth) thankfully.  Thank you so much everyone for your prayers!  We truly appreciate all of y'all!

Our sweet baby.

Little Garrett was quite alert when he was born and took to nursing like a champ.
He is so very precious and I seriously don't know how we ever did without him.

Gavin has seriously been the best help and loves his little brother sooooooo much!
All throughout the day he gives him hugs and kisses, talks about him, loves helping get things for him, and has so much fun watching all the little faces Garrett makes.

So cute!

We love getting to watch our boys grow up together
and adore being the parents of two!

"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." -Psalm 127:3-5
