And we’re back! If you’re into baby photos, here are some of our latest addition!


This giant child was born on Friday, 10 pounds 3.4 ounces, and 23″!  I am 4’11”.IMG_5168

He looks exactly like my other kids.IMG_5169And we love him like crazy!  No super special birth story for you. Just a repeat c-section early Friday morning, I got discharged Sunday morning (I’m so fortunate that I recover quickly!). I tried doing laps around the hospital Saturday night to convince them to let me go, but alas, against policy. (I really really hate being in the hospital). Once I came home I got some very glorious sleep and we’ve been busy around the house and getting to know our new little guy. Like my other kids with distinctive names, I’ll just be using an initial with him, and he’s F. Actually a double F – FF O’Grady!  We didn’t name him until Saturday night, though we were pretty certain of his middle name, the first name didn’t seem right, and suddenly I recalled what I would have named A if she had been a boy, and it was just perfect.


I’m crazy swollen from all the surgery fluids but that’s pretty much the only thing bugging me right now (that and I’m so swollen I’m still having trouble using my hands, which is why I haven’t been posting!).  I promise that I have some serious reviews in the queue and we are going to get down to business. Because this guy LOVES to sleep (oh thank you!) and there’s nothing better than hanging out with fun stuff and a baby snuggled on you. We are so super happy!


And yes, besides the age differences on my kids, they could have been triplets. My husband would question whether he played any part but they all seem to have his ears 🙂

      yeah i need to flood instagram! E was 10 lbs 0.3 oz and 21″ and now he’s slim & trim and not really all that tall. it’s more like where they are at 2 years old. although i’m happy for all my kids that they should be taller than me!

    • Brandy

      swelling is finally lower today after a whole week of it getting worse every day. that’s because i slept for 8+ hours flat on my back. and also A missed her school bus. totally unrelated!!! mommy is still way too puffy for photographs. no cameras please!
