He’s Here!

That moment when the baby you thought you’d never get is placed onto your chest and into your heart forever…

We are a big happy, overwhelmed, exhausted mess over here, but I wanted to pop in really quick to let you know that our sweet baby boy has finally arrived!

Samuel Joseph Duesterhaus was born this past Thursday evening, weighing in at 8 lb 6oz, 20.5″ long. After trying my hardest to walk and wish myself into labor, we opted to induce delivery a few days after my due date. Having been induced with Henry, it was the very last thing I wanted; however, the day and the delivery couldn’t have gone better. We’re now home and recovering and completely smitten with our new little guy. And Henry – we knew he’d do great…but the genuine love, care, and interest he has already shown Sam has made my Mama heart burst over and over again!

Thank you so much to all of your for your well wishes, thoughts and prayers! We’ll be hunkered down here for a little while as we adjust to our new pace of life so posts will be sporadic. But I will be back next Tuesday with my kitchen printable project reveal, so be sure to pop back in then. Happy New Year, sweet readers!

P.S. If you haven’t taken my annual Reader Survey yet, I’d love if you did so here!! Thanks so much to all of you who have already provided invaluable feedback!
