No, I didn't die or get abducted...

my absence from blogging wasn't due to alien abduction, jail time or death. It was, insert big smile and woot noises here, from enjoying the last few months of my pregnancy and the birth of our first son, Miles Hensley.

Yep, after our long and trying journey to become parents, we now have the most beautiful baby boy in the world. Nope, no bias is in that last statement! Miles was born via c/s after a long failed induction. He entered our world screaming on 01/01/2010 at 3.46 p.m. and he is perfect in every way.

He is now 7 weeks old and growing like a weed. At his 6 week appt he weighed in at 12.12! Not bad for kid that was born at 8.4 and went down to 7.10.

Barry and I are laughing a lot, making mistakes, discovering wonderful and horrible parts of caring for an infant, all while learning even more about each other. It really is everything I imagined and more.

Who knew that I could wake every hour for 7 weeks and still function? Who knew that Barry can sing and dance so well while holding a screaming infant? How does 3 ounces of formula multiply to 12 when it comes back up? How does a baby that has such a small belly/intestinal tract.. stink so badly when he toots... and create so much goose-like poop?

Every day I figure out more and more questions that obviously have no answers;) and I am loving every minute of it.

Stay tuned for pics of Miles very soon!
