I am so proud to finally be able to introduce you to my son... Emerson John.
He was born on July 5th - 5 1/2 weeks before my due date and 2 1/2 weeks before the doctors were planning to induce labor. He only weighed 4 lbs, 14 oz. and spent 11 days in the NICU due to his early arrival, but was perfectly healthy at birth. He just needed a little extra time to coordinate his eating and breathing. He is now 7 weeks old, weighs just over 8 lbs, and is doing wonderfully. He has also grown almost 3 inches in length. We are so proud of him!
Mom and Dad are doing great, too. A little tired... but that's one of the many joys of parenting! I am slowly finding time to return to my scrap room in between feeding, changing diapers, and napping. I didn't do much scrapping over the summer as I somehow lost my creative mojo during my pregnancy. I created a few projects here and there when I had a need for them, but I am more than ready to make up for the lack of creative energy now. My scrap mojo is back!
Hope you are all enjoying the final days of summer. I can't believe it's almost over already! I look forward to catching up with you soon.
