I'm Alive! (And Mostly Well...)

Sorry for the prolonged absence dear readers - I know y'all have been dying to find out what happened on April 4th. In a nutshell, we came home April 5th with a healthy baby boy, so everything that happened on the 4th went fabulously well.

B Daddy, Elijah, Britain and I would like to introduce Benjamin Isaac Leipprandt to the world.

Born at 11:09am April 4th
8lbs, 9oz  <---Yeah - that's a big baby in my world.
20.0 inches long

We're still learning the ropes of having three little ones at home, so new posts may be few and far between until I'm getting some real sleep each night. :) Right now a four hour stretch at night is a godsend and I'm surviving on catnaps during the day. Three kids is hard!! Any pointers from those of you who've been there, done that would be greatly appreciated.

Here I am just after Ben's arrival - clearly impressed with myself

We did it again babe! 

Labor is tiring work - epidural or not

Hello there! I'm precious.

The Squirt LOVES Baby Isaac Ben 
(we changed the name the day Ben was born...very confusing for our little man.)

Sweet B's spreading the word since I've been a little sleepy/unproductive lately. 

Thanks for all of your texts, calls, meals and visits, we are truly blessed!

The Countdown is On

Tomorrow morning I have my 39 week appointment (I'll be 39 weeks and 3 days pregnant to be precise) at the OB-GYN and will find out whether we need to head to the hospital that evening or Wednesday morning. Let me be the first to say I'm REALLY excited!

The combined feelings of "get this little man outta me!" and "2 days with no kids!" does make me feel like I'll be checking into a resort rather than a hospital though, so I'm trying to remind myself that the outcome of this little trip away from home will be a baby and not a nice tan.

We'd appreciate your prayers for a healthy delivery and will post an update with our news sometime early Wednesday!
