Baby is Here!

Wow! What a week.  Baby came one week ago, and boy are we tired! Now that everything is (somewhat) back to normal and technicalities over with- daily billirubin screenings over, circumcision done, and getting into a routine of restless nights- we are proud to introduce baby Ernesto Cruz Flores to the world.
6.29.11- 7 lbs. 1 oz
Lucky for me, and the sanity of my husband, baby made his way in to the world 2 1/2 weeks early. Had I have known I started laboring at 8:30 in the morning, the day would have been a long one, but since I was unaware of my water breaking, we drove down to American Fork to celebrate the sealing of my sister and her husband to little Harley. After setting up tables and chairs, spending time with family, and eating (of course) I decided I didn't feel well and called the hospital to see what I should do.  Made it down to the hospital from American Fork at 3:30 and was admitted immediately- not prepared to be leaving with a baby.  No bags, no clothes, not even our own car. 
Everything else flew by. The doctors' said I was made for having babies, because within a few short hours I was ready to push, and baby "Nesto" was here shortly after 9 pm. 

Now that we are home, we couldn't imagine life without this little guy. Although we are new to parenting, and don't really have a clue to what we are doing most days, we love our baby more than anything and can't wait to see what the future has in store!
