Our New Addition

Well, we now need to figure out a new title for our blog because there are four of us now! Gage Timothy was born on Tuesday, July 7th at 11:35 a.m. My c-section went fine...minus the fact that they couldn't get the spinal in and had to do it twice. *ouch* I won't even try to describe the pain because the end result is this...
Conner is doing great and is going to be the best big brother! He loves talking to Gage, but can't really understand why Gage doesn't talk back to him ("He's not listening to me.") and why Gage can't play with him. The playing with him isn't that big of a deal to him because Conner has gotten to play with Gage's tractor Grandpa bought him ever since we got home....Gage did tell Conner it was okay for him to play with it. So, my new little helper helps me pick up things off the floor (I still can't quite get down that far), pours the formula in bottles, "changes" diapers, and explains to Gage how to fish, farm, and talk Mom and Dad into going outside.
We are so happy to be home and are fitting into our life as a family of four pretty well. Gage is sleeping three to four hours at a time (I know, we're a little spoiled) and we hope that keeps up for a while!! We already can't imagine our lives without our Baby Gage and thank everyone for their prayers. We are truly blessed beyond words.
