Meet Quatro...

Sorry you haven't heard from me in awhile. I was "enjoying" the world of being huge pregnant and a mom of 3 little people!

But, I come today bearing really good news. Our sweet 4th child is here! And we could not be happier. Meet Sam Powell Ramsey

He arrived February 18th at 4:03 pm. He weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches long.

We are still in the hospital but are headed home tomorrow. I am so happy about this since supposedly a huge storm is headed our way on Thursday. Let's just say this little guy is precious, and wonderful, and we couldn't feel more blessed.

The Weekend Update

Happy Monday Everyone! I am happy to finally report that we had a good weekend that went as planned! It seemed like the last month or so we couldn't catch a break between hives and sickness.

Friday morning I had a doctor's appointment and am very happy to report that everything looks great and our little guy is doing well. I shared my concerns with the doctor about this little guy coming super fast like Jack did. My doctor was sympathetic and definitely helped ease my mind. He did offer to induce a week early if it would make me feel better. It is very tempting. But, I personally just can't justify getting induced early without any medical reason for it. So, I am going to continue to trust God's timing and continue praying that our sweet boy is not born on the side of the highway!

Here is the 37 week shot!

The hilight of our weekend was definitely on Saturday night. The hubs and my dad took the boys to Monster Jam and my mom and I had a girls evening with Soph (out to dinner and then to Target, doesn't get much girlier than that!). The boys LOVED Monster Jam and apparently did great. They got there at 6 and stayed until almost 10 o'clock! I have loved getting a full report back from all the boys (including the hubs!) I think they are already planning next year's Monster Jam! And girl's night was great too... my mom and I got new matching slippers. We thought they looked very Valentines-y!

Yesterday we went to the late service at church since everyone slept in a bit after the big night. Plus, we were waiting for a roads to get plowed after the big snow. When we got home we had a quick lunch and then the kiddos and Nick had to head out to play in the snow!

Playtime was followed by some hot chocolate and a movie rest time. Then we headed to my parent's house to watch the Super Bowl. Despite the fact that the game was super boring we had a great time! My mom made amazingly delicious gumbo and there was chocolate pie for dessert... some things are all about the food!

Not too much on the agenda for this week. I am not sleeping well at night so we are taking the days easy and  just enjoying our time together.

I hope everyone has a good week!
