mommy brain has set in

So here I sit in front of my screen trying to put together coherent sentences. My mind is not working properly, I am very tired. I think our new little man has his days and nights mixed up...we will be working on that! I am in a bit of discomfort...he was big and I am feeling it now! My mom is holding Rigg and I am trying to catch up on my blogging. It is a real inconvenience for her...RIIIIIIGHT!

Our hospital stay was great. Our L and D nurse was wonderful, as was my Doc...I know I have mentioned before...but I just love her! She made our first experiences well as our second so wonderful, God has blessed us with great dr's and we are so thankful. My nurse in postpartum went to high school with Andy...small world. She was amazing. On Sunday morning while all of my family was at church, she came in and sat with me for about 20 min and just chatted about "our story" as people continue to call it. It was a great chat and I am glad we had the opportunity.

We had visitors out the ears...which I LOVED. I am such a people person. (I am sorry to all those who had to hug an unshowered Cari...y'all just kept coming and I had no time...) There were also 2 other ladies from our church who delivered the day after me and the day after that...so we were all on the same floor together...It was fun...and weird!

Thanks for all the prayer you have been lifting up for my family and me...I know this weekend was so wonderful because of you and how wonderful our God is! The captain had a wonderful father's day...

God is good.

And now..more pics for your viewing pleasure...remember to pause the music at the bottom so you can hear the video.

Hey Cari, I just wanted to let you know that we prayed for Rigg today in Hebrews class. Mike Smith said that he wanted to hear about Rigg every week because Rigg was such a great name. I'll show him the video here tonight. . .

Cari,
I started following your blog just before the Captain's tumor was found. I have laughed, cried, and rejoiced with you. I prayed for your labor and the health of baby Rigg. I have been so blessed by your words and your faith. Thank you so much for sharing. I will continue to lift up the three of you in my prayers. Congratulations!!!
