And just look how cute our little family of four is:
(getting ready to leave the hospital)
Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and congratulations! We appreciate all of your support. We are excited to be home. So far (so for all 28 hours of his life), Asher is a really sweet baby. He is very chill and patient, which is amazing. Hopefully he stays that way :) Reed loves his little brother and thinks he is in charge of either holding Asher or deciding who gets to hold Asher. I am doing great. My recovery has been easier than with Reed and I feel quite good, all things considered. When my doctor came to check on me today, he mentioned that since my labor was so fast and I "coped with the pain so well" (haha--ask Ryan's eardrums about that one), we can kind of assume that all future labors will be faster and just as "easy"--so I might not even want an epidural. While I am grateful for an extremely fast labor (apparently I was only in "active labor" for about an hour and a half), I can assure you that I never plan on having a natural labor again. Hopefully I can work that out. Anyway, we are all doing well and we love our new little guy!
