I just couldn't be happier for you. Sons are a heritage from the Lord. I am glad your surgery went well also and thankful that your uterus held on! :) What a blessing that he is nursing well.

I will continue to pray that all adjust well as your family of SIX gets aquanited with it's newest member. - K

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

Just wanted to say thank you again for the update, it's so sweet of you to take the time to post this picture when you are still in the hospital. Enjoy your cuddle time with him!


YAY!!! COngratulations!!!


Wow! I can smell his new baby smell from way over here! He is so cute! AUGH! I can't wait to hold him close and sniff his head!


Amanda, he is so sweet! Congratulations!

Just to note: I also had a very thin uterus at the incision site when my 4th child was born, scary thin like 1mm. It wasn't an issue at all when my 5th was born. We didn't do the c-section early at all, and there was no mention of it being very thin during the surgery (or after for that matter).

Becki D

You are amazing, Amanda!!! What a gorgeous little man you have...and what a tough Momma you are! No meds for the first 22 hours?! Are you NUTS??? hehehe

Congratulations on your newest addition. Your family is big and beautiful! I'll be keeping you all in my prayers are you heal, grow and adjust.
