Hey ladies it has been quite a while since I have been on the boards but things have been crazy. I am just now getting back to work because Zakiyah Logan was born on September 7th at 1:27am... He was 3days early, but was healthy as can be. He weighed 6lbs 13oz and was 20in long. The labor was mcuh shorter with her than with his older brother! Hope everyone is doing well and see ya soon on the newborn boards!!

Hi Heathir -

Congratulations! So glad you checked back in (and had a short labor), we were concerned about you!

How is it going with juggling work and the boys?

Blessings to you and your family,
Elizabeth

Thank you ladies...
Sorry I was gone so long, was just soaking up every second I had to be home with my boys:)...
Everything went very smooth with LO. I went into the hospital around 6pm on the 6th after having some contractions since the 4th. The contractions slowly got increasingly more intense and frequent. I contemplated going in wednesday night but decided not to because I had no one to stay with Izayah. Then thursday I called off work and walked around the neighborhood while Zay rode his bike for an hour or 2. Once my mom woke up she could see the contractions coming and getting stronger so we went up and the dr asked me to walk the floor for a while and if I progressed then we would have a baby that night and if not they would give me something to help me sleep and break my water in the morning. I walked and progressed quickly Just an hour or so after I got the epi Little Zakiyah made his entrance to the world!
Since we came home Izayah has been a great big brother. He's always wanting to help mommy with "his baby" and wanting to hold Zakiyah. I love having 2! ...
As for juggling work and my boys, I have a great support system and I would do anything for the boys so I definitely make it work. I have cut back on my hours at work to be home with them as much as possible because leaving them everyday is a struggle!
