Jonathan Edwyn Stay

Jonathan Edwyn Stay was born on July 23rd at 6:18 pm, weighing in at 8lbs 2oz.  His middle name is for Ben's Grandpa, who shared that birthday.  We're in love, again.

 My amazing midwife, Wendy Dotson

 James brought his trusty rhino with him to meet Jonny, of course

Jonathan came one week late, but I forgave him for that as soon as he was placed on my chest.  :)  I had made a goal to make it through this childbirth wth no pain medication, (maybe I'll post about that another time) and the longer he waited, the weaker my resolve became.  I even scheduled an induction for Sunday the 22nd, which I ended up cancelling.  I'm SO glad I did, because he came on his own the following day. 

I'm so in love with my THREE men. 

When Ben drove me to the hospital the day I had James, we listened to a Weezer song in the baby's honor.  This time, I drove myself to the hospital while on the phone with Ben and I didn't get a chance to play the song.  So here it is--for the boys, I sing loudest starting at the 3:32 mark
