Hey everyone! As most of you know, Denver Josiah Sledge has arrived!!! He is cuddly and wiggly and warm, and I am so thankful that God made me his mama. I am definitely behind on blogging, and I plan to catch up over the next week. Here is one last survey/pic to document the pregnancy journey, and then I’ll start posting about life as a mama.

  • How far along are you? 40 weeks/1 week postpartum
  • What size is baby? 8 lbs 11 oz, 21 inches long. I am astounded.
  • Gender prediction? The ultrasound was correct. Denver is a boy!
  • Planning a natural or medicated birth? The birth was NATURAL and painful. I will post Denver’s birth story soon.
  • How much weight have you gained? Before delivery, 33 lbs. I haven’t weighed myself since.
  • Food cravings? I finally ate a hot dog. It was delicious. Now I just need queso and a margarita to make up for the last 9 months.
  • Maternity clothes? I am pretty thin again but not quite back to my usual size. My boobs are huge. Consequently, I still wear maternity pants/shorts and now Micah’s t-shirts. I am wondering when/if my wedding ring will ever fit again.
  • Exercise routine? Breastfeeding, you would not believe how much energy this requires. I nurse Denver approximately 5 hours a day.
  • Sleep Habits? I have a newborn, and he is nocturnal. Enough said. At least the trains no longer bother me.
  • Best moment of the week? Finally seeing my sweet boy’s face! I can’t believe how perfectly God created him, with his little cleft chin, light brown hair, and big Browning feet.
  • Biggest discomfort of the week? Stitches
  • Weekly wisdom? God is bigger than comprehension.

Here’s the final bump pic! Forgive my terrible posture. Denver is so heavy, my back is killing me.
