The Journey Begins...

...well, truthfully it started Friday when Jaiden was born!! LOL But I've been so busy with him and the rest of the family that I'm just finally getting a chance to post now!

It is so hard to put into words how amazing his entrance into the world was. I still look at him and think, "This is *my* baby ...that *I* pushed out. No one's coming to pick him up at the end of the day ... he's MINE! OMG ... *I* am his mother." =D Totally surreal!

I won't lie and say the whole thing has been easy. A lot of the times he cries, I cry. I know it's hormones and whatnot, but that part of it stinks. If I didn't have Jaimie here helping me (and OMG, he is the greatest Daddy ever!!), I think I would have freaked out or screamed or something.

Jaiden also finally took his longest nap ever last night (aside from his "baby comas" in the hospital after he was born and after he got his peepee snipped). He slept for 7 hours straight ... between 9 pm and 4 am! Now if we can shift that a little ... to something like 11 to 6, it'd be perfect!! LOL I got a nice long nap in too while Jaimie kept an eye on him during his super nap. And when Jaiden woke up ... he had a nice big surprise for us ... a SUPER POOP! lol He'd been storing it, I think ... 'cause it was an explosion. =D

Right now, the little man is sleeping soundly in my lap while I catch up on blogs and forums and emails. He just got done having breakfast, so he's out for the count for a couple hours, at least. Hopefully that'll be enough time to get stuff done!!

I'll be posting the birth story right after I get done with this post. I will post-date it for the 9th, when Jaiden was born. So look for it after this one!! =D

And lastly, I shall leave you with a picture of the cutest baby EVER!! =D My little Jai-bird!
