Our newest addition! 2.01.12

Looking at my last post makes me chuckle…it was my first official day of maternity leave and I had a list of projects (including two quilts) I wanted to make before Ethan’s pending arrival. Turns out Ethan decided to arrive two weeks early 🙂 I made it two days into maternity leave and at 1:30 am on February 1st, I went into labor and Ethan was born that day at 1:28 pm weighing 7 lbs. 6oz. Ethan was ambitious and ready to meet the world!

I am recovering very well. Thank you all for your kind words on Facebook, it means a lot. Mommy and Daddy are two very happy parents! We’re finally getting the hang of our little bugger’s schedule. For all you mommy’s out there, I have a new level of respect for each and every one of you now that I’ve been through it, and am a mommy myself. For any new mommies out there, my sincere thoughts go out to you as we nurse our little loves in the wee hours of the night.

-mommy Jera 🙂

    I did have a little chuckle when I read that post. Even though my son came right on time, I was sure he would be a little late and I would get so much done. And then, of course, I don't think I got much done creatively till both kids were grown.

  26. Cheree @ The Morning Latte February 8, 2012 at 4:20 am #

    Congrats to you! And, I'm a little partial to the name–my youngest (now almost 11) is named Ethan. :o) I have to say he has been the easiest of them all!

  27. Carol D. February 8, 2012 at 4:21 am #

    Oops! I forgot to say congrats on the new member of your family. He looks absolutely precious.

    Lucky little Ethan – he's gonna grow up in a quilter's home. Sons & mothers are a special combination. Believe me, with 4 sons I've lived a happy life.
