Hey all! Gues what......I had a baby. His name is Maverick Mercury Danger. He was born March 5th at about 12:30 at night. He weighed 8lbs 1oz and measured 20.5" when he was born. He's very cute. We like him very much.
As wild and wacky as labor was last this, this time everything went by the book and I was able to do a VBAC. I did manage to have 5 days of unrelentless prodromal labor before I went into active labor though, which was pretty sucky. But, not having another C-section is really what I cared about this time.
About a month old
Mr. Danger has been home on 12 weeks of paid paternity leave (!!!) and doesn't go back to work until next week still. It has been great to have him home to help the transition from 1 kiddo to 2, but I swear I somehow get less done with him home. Even though I get less done with him here, both he and I are not looking forward to him going back to work next week.

Presley has been the most amazing big brother. He has been so gentle, and so loving, and so sweet with baby brother and has not had really any jealous behavior or much regression on behaviors/potty training at all. We are so thankful for that! And, serendipitously I went into labor ON my due date, and Maverick was born first thing in the morning the next day, 3/5. Presley's birthday is 5/3, which we think is pretty cool. Also, we celebrated P's third birthday a couple weekends ago. He is getting so big I can hardly believe it.

We have so been enjoying this new baby, all of us. We are so thankful to be able to bring this gentle little spirit into our family. It is SO MUCH EASIER this time with the second baby compared to the first, which is a big relief. Presley was a very cranky baby....

Alrighty, that's all for now. I am working on two books right now (yes I know, crazypants) so I have been working every spare moment on that. It is going way slower than I had thought, and I actually moved back the due dates on both by 6 months this week (since the first one was due last friday and I am only halfway done with it). I've got to go get back at book knitting now since I got 0 done yesterday and only very slightly more done today. I'll be back soon here though, I have been missing blogging very much recently. And I have lots more fun baby photos and maybe even a new baby patttern to share...
