One whole week.

Our little dude is one week old today. Wow how time flies. I know soon I will wake up and be writing his one year old tribute. Even though I am still pretty doped up on drugs and have very little sleep, I am trying to soak in every moment with Graham. As I write even, he is laying write next to me. I think I actually am more present in these first few days with him that I was with Keller.Keller was a hard labor and delivery and I struggled more emotionally at the beginning with him and I think because now I know how fast time flies, I am trying to love every moment with both of my princes. So the highs and lows of the week are as follows-
Very little sleep
a very cluttered bedroom
major aches and pains
an infection in my God given bottles that has put me on antibiotics
a few sad moments that I have not been the primary care taker of Keller
the most beautiful and perfect son in my arms or by my side almost 24 hours a day
the fact that I am no longer pregnant and not having to pee every 2 minutes
yesterday morning, I was nursing Graham and Keller was watching Elmo's world(I know,the things you resort to) snuggled up next to me and it was one of the most full moments of my life.
seeing Keller be so precious with "baby Graham". Keller only says his name in a high pitch kind of baby voice.
success in nursing
a very clean, cleaner that it has probably ever been house, except my bedroom thanks to my wonderful mother in law who left yesterday. She was amazing, cleaned everything, brought me lunch in bed, took Keller out the park everyday.
James has had a great week back at work and is loving his new job.
and the list goes on..
my cup does overfloweth!
ps- I had to do a little "can you tell who is who" hint- Keller weighed 9 lbs and Graham weighed 6 1/2. pps- I gained 40 with Keller and 25 with Graham:)

Drum roll- Graham Hudson Walker arrived into the world at 7:49am March 12th. Weighing in at a whopping 6 lbs. and 5 oz. - yes two and a half pounds less than his older bro and measuring in at 19 inches. He is so beautiful and perfect in every way. We stayed in the hospital until Saturday morning and our home trying to adjust to life with a new being in our home. The Walkers and the Bells are helping us adjust and take care of our full-of-energy two year old. One funny story to leave you with-
so I got home from the hospital at 1230 yesterday afternoon and after nursing Graham and hugging Keller, took a hefty dose of Vicadin and napped for about two hours. Afterwards I was feeling so great I insisted that I needed my Dad to take me to the grocery store for a few things. Every one was kind of looking at me like I was crazy but I was sure I was okay. It was not until I was walking from one end of the store to the other and ran into a friend who had a what the heck are you doing here look on her face I realized that this was a bad decision. I am totally paying for it today. I can barely get out of bed. Those silly drugs make you feel like you are superwoman:) So back to bed for a few minutes before motherly duty calls and it is such a joy!

Ready or not, here he comes!

Tomorrow is our big day. Graham Hudson will be in our arms and I am just giddy. I don't know I thought it would feel like an old hat since we have done this before but I am just as excited maybe more because I know of all the blessings that lie ahead. I cannot wait to hold my precious boy and for our family to take a new shape. I have been a little sad or maybe just more nostalgic thinking that it will no longer be just the three of us. Keller has been the richest and most precious gift to our lives- I highly recommend parenting:) Here are pictures of baby G's room- we made some changes so it would feel new and fresh. My dear friend Jessica made the canvas and James painted the "G" above the crib-such talent. We will post pics as soon as possible.
