Introducing Judah Michael

 On October 6th at 7 PM Judah Michael was brought into this world.  He was 8'5 when he was born and 20".  After 48 hours of labor that ended in a c-section I gave birth to our third child.  It was quite a remarkable and amazing experience.  I may not have had the birth I set out to have, but I am completely at peace with what happened and completely in love with the outcome.  I am now enjoying maternity leave.  I am taking my full leave so I will be home until after the holidays, which is amazing.  I would love to stay home, but I'm just not sure that is feasible this time around.  But I am going to soak in every minute of baby cuddles. 

Penny and Ben have been dealing well with the family changes.  They love Judah and always want to hold him.  Penny is being a big helper.  We have had some hiccups and bumps in the road, but we are settling into being a family of 5. 

I plan on sharing his birth story and my breastfeeding journey because both of them have been major learning experiences for me.  There were some major challenges in trying to have a vbac from gestational diabetes to unsupportive providers.  While I may not have had a vbac because little Judah was just in a wrong position and not going to come out that way, I still had a crazy journey through pregnancy trying to get there.

So with out further ado.  Here is Judah Michael.
