Ok, I came straight here when we got an email from Joel this morning. The email said Samuel weighs 7 lbs 12 oz and was born on 8/21/08...which I have to tease Joel about because I'm sure he was tired and I had to think twice on birthdates/months, etc when I was scheduling appts for my 3 little monkeys earlier this week. So is Samuel 7lbs 12 oz or 8 lbs 12 oz? Either way, he is adorable!!!

Oh, and you take efficiency to a whole new level, Steph!!! Gaining only 15 lbs with Samuel's weight being more than half that!!! You ARE Mrs. Efficiency!!! :) It's officially official!! :) I was at the 15 pounds gained mark at my last prenatal appt, but I have 8 long weeks to go and some inches I saw disappearing for some unknown reason (because I'm eating normally and only chasing Connor for exercise) are now reappearing so I'm actually interested to see what the scale will say at my appt this week. I'm actually quite surprised because this has never happened to me. I've always gained WAY more with the boys. ???

I laughed about your definition of "vacation," but while I was laughing I was SOOO relating!! Get some good "rest." I'm praying today you get some special one on one time with your new little guy! :)

Boy, I must have completely spaced on that date. I read the comment about putting 8/21 in the e-mail and I thought, "No, way, I didn't do that did I?" Sure enough, I did. Good catch Christie.

Rachel said...

Congratulations!! He's beautiful. Glad you guys are all doing well.

Kat said...

Congratulations! He is adorable. Have a great "vacation" and I can't wait to see you guys, all 6 of you!

Congratulations! He is so precious!

I just realized that I hadn't sent you guys a congratulations! He definitely looks like one of your kids. So cute and pink and cuddly! Makes me want another baby....

So now there are seven! I hope it won't be too long before we can get all the cousins together. Enjoy your break, Stephanie.

Oh, I'm so happy for you Stephanie! I'm sorry I'm just now reading this! Hope you guys are doing great. Post some pics when you have a chance...but I'm okay to wait...I know things are probably *just a little busy* these days. ;)

I think I might be the big winner of the Guess the baby's birthweight game!
