I realize that I'm terrible about blogging. Really, with Facebook (and the millions of other social media options), I feel this is a bit archaic. But, this is the best way to tell all the people we love about the great things going on in our house!
So, if you just want the news, read the next paragraph. If you want the story, read the full post. If you don't care about either, than you won't have clicked on the link we'll be posting on Facebook that leads to this blog.
Ahem . . . .
Brian and I would like to officially introduce you to William Scott Bennit Simmons. He was born on Sept. 25 and came in at a whopping 8 pounds 8 ounces, 20 inches. He is healthy, eats like a champ, sleeps in good long blocks, and is a mellow and peaceful baby.
We were contacted by our case worker at LDS Family Services 18 days before the birth mom went into labor. In that short time, we developed an amazing relationship with her, she truly is an fantastic woman. I was invited into the delivery room, and despite the fact that I'm not big on the whole "birth" thing, I was thrilled to be there to help, and to see my son enter the world. He stayed in the hospital for a couple of days, and has been home with us while we waited the required waiting period. (Its 10 days in the state of Georgia, and a really LONG 10 days.) And now that its passed, we can shout from the mountain tops what we've been wanting to scream for days.
We have a son!!!!!
I am so incredibly thankful for all the prayers, positive thoughts, words of support, and moments of kindness that so many people have shared. I know that it isn't easy to know how to handle complicated matters like infertility, but I have been blessed with an amazing husband, a wonderful family, and the best group of friends a girl could ask for. And with that, I'd like to leave you with one final statement.
I'd like to apologize in advance for the gratuitous posting of pictures and stories about the new little man in my life. I won't be offended if you block me from your news feed and ignore my blog from now until eternity.
