Our little man Austin Charles is here

I am overjoyed to announce the birth of our son Austin Charles. He was born December 8th at 3:23 pm weighing 7 lb 8 oz. He is just so precious and I can't believe he is finally here. I have attached a picture of him today after his first sponge bath.


I can't begin to describe the amount of relief I feel to have him here and not be pregnant anymore. It as if the weight of the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I sat down to dinner last night with a small glass of red wine not worrying about what I was eating or if I was doing the right thing. I could just enjoy life again.


For those of you who have not had your miracles arrive yet, all I can say is to believe. Have faith! Somehow someway if you perservere long enough your dreams will come true.


This time last year was the worst holiday season and all I wanted was my baby in my arms. I spent hours on the internet researching and even looking for a possible surrogate because I no longer had confidence in myself and the ability to be pregnant. Now a year later my faith in life has been restored and my baby made his way into my arms.


Praise be to God and most of all my little man Austin!

Hi Jenn,


we have U/S appointment on January 2nd! Cannot wait for that. Hopefully the baby will cooperate and we will find out then.


I know the more that date will be getting closer I will be more and more nervous if everything will be OK, so I am trying to concentrate on the thought that we will find out pink or blue and not the thought if everything will look healthy and normal :-)


So far my pregnancy is pretty uneventful. I had little spotting around week six, that freaked me out, but since then everything is looking good. I am just nervous a lot (as you can imagine :-)


Enjoy your little man, he is so adorable! I cannot wait for May to get here, I wanna have baby to care of sooo baaad :-)


Love,


Veronika
