    Default Our new baby boy is here!

    I've been a bad board member but I wanted to announce our new baby boy We named him Isaiah David and he was born 8/28, 7lbs 5oz and 19.5in long...my biggest baby by quite a bit!
    Everything has gone so wonderfully this time around and he is a fantastic baby! I am having a bit of vasectomy regret, not completely surprised by that. I was feeling done the entire pregnancy but at the same time I always wanted a big family. What is surprising is that my dh is having a bit of vasectomy regret. He originally only wanted 2, then we had a 3rd as his 'last shot for a boy' and #4 was a surprise and HE has said he kind of regrets getting a vasectomy. Is is awful to kind of hope it didn't work? he hasn't had it checked yet but I'm sure that only the people who really want it to work are so lucky as to have it not (his cousin was actually one of those, he had it done twice)
    I've only been home a day but transitioning to 4 kids has gone very well. The girls just adore him, almost TOO much! and DS who was too young to understand what was going on and I thought he'd be jealous but so far he just loves the baby. He's been a little clingy but he smiles so big when we let him 'hold' the baby and he's always pointing to the baby's hands/feet/nose and then his own. It just melts my heart

    He is adorable!! Glad everyone is adjusting just fine! I think I would feel the same way if either of us ever had a permanent bc option done---just the finality of it I guess. I hope that all turns out for the best!

    Oh he is BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Congrats, Mandi. I'm so happy for you.

    I'm so scared of the big V which is why we've held off. I don't think I'll ever feel totally and completely done. ((HUGS))

    I'm so happy for you Mandi! He is absolutley adorable! I hope the vasectomy regrets go away - that's something I worry about too & one reason why I've not pushed dh, but do plan on getting an iud in once baby is here. Such a hard decision to make!

    Congrats again Mama

    Congrats!

    He looks like a healthy kiddo!

    Sorry about the V-regrets. A friend of ours has had 2 reversals for that reason!!!! They now have 5 children.
