Welcome Our New Son

On Friday morning, September 28th, at 4:21am Kevin Joseph arrived. He was 8lbs 1oz and 21 inches long. Labor and delivery went soooo much smoother than it did with Matthew. Kevin looks a lot like Matthew did as a baby. He is eating very well and sleeping okay. Last night was a little bit rough for him, but he is doing okay. Matthew and Alisha are very excited and very proud of their new baby brother.
I have to share a funny story. Thursday afternoon when I picked Matthew up from school I came to the realization that Alisha did not understand that there was a real baby in mommy's belly. I told the kids as I walked to the car that we had to go for a walk when we got home. Matthew inquired as to why and I asked if he wanted to see his baby brother. He of course answered with a very excited yes and I told him that the doctor told me that if we wanted the baby to come out I had to keep on walking. Alisha then announced, "We gonna see the baby's heartbeat." Because she had heartbeat at several of my prenatal appointments. I told her that no, we would see the real baby. She says, "Oh, on the TV screen." I laughed as I realized that she thought she was just going to get to see another ultrasound picture. I tried to explain that we would actually see the real baby when he came out, but with her reactions on Friday morning to her new brother I know she still does not understand completely that the baby came out of my belly. It will be interesting in the future to see what she has to say about where her baby brother came from.
