Sweet William Has Arrived!!!!

It has been over 2 weeks since I posted here, but for all good reason. Sweet William Todd Best arrived into the world Thursday, April 29th, 2010!!!!!!!!!!! It's hard to believe he is already two weeks old today! The time is going quickly and I can see such amazing changes in him already. Momma and baby and doing alright. Momma had to endure over 23 hours of labour and a very hard delivery but we survived! He weighed in 7 pounds, 11 1/2 ounces and as of yesterday during a little weigh in he is now 8 pounds 5 ounces.

Today and yesterday have been two rough days as our little boy has had some nasty gas pains. His poor little body is just crumpled in pain and discomfort. We have had next to little sleep. I have been doing some research online about infants and gas related issues and hope to try a few things. Up to yesterday evening he has been always able to sleep in his crib, but since last night the only place he seems comfortable and able to sleep is in his car seat. I guess he feels better in a semi sit position sleeping than on his back right now to help ease his pain. The poor little fella. I wish I could take the pain from him. I really hope this passes soon. I have read some nasty incidences where the gas pains could go from 24 hours to 12 months!! Ooohhh Help me!!!!!

As for sewing... well .. umm that has now been put on hold for a while. I did manage to get in about 20 minutes a few nights ago on some hand sewing of my hexagon blocks, but then the little fella woke up for a feeding and that was the end of my needle work!!! Sigh.... will I ever get to sew again???? I'm already suffering withdrawls!!!!!!!

Please tell me it will happen!! I need re assurance!!! Don't get me wrong I love love LOVE being a Mommy, but Mommy just doesn't have her own time anymore. I have been soo use to doing what I wanted when I wanted and that suddenly changed. For the good mind you, but I do miss my sewing time already!!! Keep your fingers, toes and eyes crossed that his little gas pains end very soon and we have a happy baby and happy Mommy and Daddy again!!!
