Our Newest Little Man

Mr. D, Max, and I are thrilled to announce the arrival of our new family member:

Mason William

Mason came screaming into this world on Wednesday, January 30.  He weighed 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and immediately stole what was left of my heart.  Just like with Max, when I heard Mason scream for the first time as he was being pulled out of me, I bursted into tears.  I cried out of sheer disbelief that he is alive and I am his mother, until he was brought over to my side - at which time we both stopped crying, locked eyes, and stared at each other.

Mason looks exactly like Max did when he was born (in comparing baby pictures, I literally don't know the difference between my own two sons).  He is healthy and the perfect person that was meant to complete our family.  We have been given a gift, and for that, we are so incredibly grateful.

My repeat C-section was the BEST decision I made... our birth was the most beautiful, calm, peaceful, quick experience.  I laid down on the surgical table at 7:49 a.m., Mason was born at 8:07, and I was back in my postpartum room at 8:47.  Mason was nursing at 8:56, and from there... well, everything has been incredibly calm and surreal.

We are still in the hospital - I will post a birth story once we are home and settled.  

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your love and support - you gals mean the world to me!

Welcome to this world, my baby Mason.  You are the perfect little boy to complete our family.

Mrs. D


  1. Adorable!!!!!

    I am with you, if I ever had another, I would want a c-section. It is planned, mess worry, less drama, and you know what to expect. And you don't have to squirt yourself with a weird bottle and wear those medicated pads up your junk.

    Hi Mason, you are a lucky guy to have your parents and big brother!!!!!!!

  2. He is perfect, congratulations!! Glad everything went exactly how you pictured and it was so peaceful.

  3. He is so beautiful! Congratulations! So glad everything went smoothly!
