Our new addition....

I am the worst blogger ever. Just scroll down a bit and you will find were I blogged about the birth of our last baby. (not that it was that long ago!!) Yes, we had another one. Another cute boy and we are in love!!!

Ty Steven Volmer was born on January 20th at 10:39 a.m. via C-section. He weighed 12 lbs. 15 1/2 oz. and was 22 inches long. ( why didn't they just round up 1/2 oz to make it 13? They didn't weigh him till he was almost an hour old and he even pooped and peed before they weighed him. They didn't have any diapers that would fit him, and finally some nurse found a pack of 3's. So he wore 3's while there. We knew he would be big, like our other kids, but we never imagined he could be bigger than Eliza. (weighing 11lbs. 6 oz.) He was a pound and a half bigger!! I was completely miserable at the end and HUGE!! Ask anyone. Of course I got the twins comments, the "you must be due anyday" when I was only 6 months, but really I was way bigger than with my other two.

He is such a sweet and good baby and is so calm even when his sister and brother are beating him over the head with some toy. They both love to kiss him and Eliza is already wanting to change his diaper, read to him, and "feed" him. Here are a few pictures of his birth day...

The night before going in. (This picture really doesn't show how big I really was.)

Our first picture with him.
Poor baby had to have an iv for a few days due to some minor breathing problems.
The gang minus a dreadful looking momma.

All ready to go home in his 3-6 month outfit!!
