We are SO EXCITED to have A BOY!!! Can you believe we have two kids?! One of each too! Ivan was born on Monday, April 20th, 2009 at 1:09pm. He weighed 7lbs and 4oz and was 19 1/4" long.

I had to have a repeat c-section, since Elle was an emergency two years ago. It was really not as bad this time around. I made the whole procedure worse in my head than it actually turned out being. I received a spinal tap, which was less traumatic than getting an epidural. All my Dr's were really great, my OB of course!

This time around Patrick took video of the surgery, I have yet to watch it. I will soon though, with my fingers over my eyes for all the blood parts. He took some great photos too, which you will see.

I was in the hospital for three days, I have a heart condition and had two tests done. My heart has a bigymeny beat(an abnormal heart rhythm). So I had an EKG and an ecocardiogram done. Nothing new to me, but they of course have to make sure nothing can happen to me. We got home Thursday, the 23rd at 5:30pm.

Most of my family was at the hospital on delivery day. Unfortunately we were missing my mom, sister, mother and father-in law and sister-in laws. Most of them will be coming to visit here shortly, which I am so excited about! I can't wait for everyone to meet my little munchin man!

My wonderful MOPS girls are bringing us meals everyother day for a week, till my mom gets here. We had a wonderful meal from my friend Yaneth last night! Thank you!

Today, Patrick went to work at noon and Elle, Ivan and I have done really well alone. Elle is way more active now, so I feel bad. I would like to play with her outside, but that will have to wait. Patrick bought her a bucket and he filled it with water last night. She has a little pool, the video is below of her playing in it last night. She did play in it this morning and she absolutely loves it.

My brother is coming tonight to stay the weekend and help me with Elle, since Patrick works all weekend. So she will get to play and get her energy out!

At first, I did not think he looked at all like Elle. For one, she had NO HAIR, he has TONS! Although, the more and more I studied him, the more they really look alike. My next post, I will put pics up comparing their looks! That will be fun:)
