About 30 seconds after this pictures was taken, Smith spit up all over Kensington…she looked horrified!
We got home from the hospital around 11:30 this morning and my mom has finally insisted I sit down and “rest”…which is basically just time for me to blog and blog hop. These are mostly pictures from today and a few from yesterday. I am so happy to be home!! I hate being confined to the hospital…it doesn’t suit my personality AT ALL!
Here are just some tid bits about our last few days. When I woke up Monday morning I wasn’t feeling great. I thought it was probably nerves and not being able to eat pre-surgery. However, when we got to the hospital and they hooked me up to the machine, they realized I was in labor and progressing quickly. Smith knew this was his day to be born whether we planned it or not :).
We had 20 people in the waiting area waiting for baby to be born. They all were told to show up to the hospital dressed in either pink or blue (their final choice in what we were having). 16 wore blue and 4 wore pink. All 4 grandparents thought it was a boy and all wore blue (that’s why they’re all dressed alike in the pictures). Andrew and I thought girl and he sported his pink in the pre-op room.
We were VERY surprised when Dr. Riegel told Andrew to look and see what the baby was. Very surprised!!! Andrew said “it’s a boy” and the fun hasn’t stopped since. Smith William has been a complete joy and really finalized the last piece of our family puzzle.
We picked the name Smith William when we were pregnant the first time. We knew we wanted a British name (like Kensington Kate) and at the same time, I wanted to honor and remember my grandfather who I was extremely close to and who passed away 10 years ago. If you read this blog at all, you know that my family is super close and we do EVERYTHING together, so William Higginbotham was our patriarch and is very missed. Smith William will carry on his name.
I’m sure I’ll be blogging even more (if that’s possible) with new pictures and stories about me being a mom with two kids under 16 months. Enjoy this fresh batch of shots…
