Here he is!!

This is just going to be a quick post because I'm exhausted and it's almost time for Carson to eat again.

Thanks to Raymond for posting of Carson's birth. I'll do a whole birth story later but he was in the NICU for 24 hours for breathing issues and is now on phototherapy (bililights) for jaundice. He has been for a few days and I guess my moping around finally got them to let us continue that at home with home therapy like we did with E. So much for my quick getaway from the hospital but I wasn't leaving without Carson. Today was the first day I'd been outside since early Thursday morning!!

But we're home, he'll be ok, I got my VBAC, he's nursing well and we're just all excited and tired. Here are a few pictures to tide you over until I can get a website up.

The 4 of us the day after Carson's birth:
