Meet Bunjamin!

We welcomed our newest son into our family on Monday. Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a week already!

After spending the weekend with my parents (just in case I went into labor), while Peter spent some time with his best friends, we had an exciting end to our weekend.
On Sunday night, after the boys were in bed, but before Peter made it home from the Wild game, my water broke while attempting to climb into the bathtub.
Luckily Peter was on his way home when I called, and with a little help from my dad and from our neighbors, we were able to make it safely to the hospital in plenty of time.

I arrived at the hospital at 9:15pm and we had a happy and healthy baby boy by 2:47am. This was my shortest labor yet--down from 10 hrs. with Brady and 7 1/2 hrs. with Logan. This was also my easiest and most pain-free delivery yet!

Marshall Allen Kuznia was born on Monday March 15, 2010 @ 2:47am (I know, I already mentioned that).
He weighed 7 lbs. 0 oz. (the exact same as Logan did--at nearly the same week along-Logan was born at exactly 38 wks. and Marshall at 37 6/7 wks). He was 20 inches long too.
What a little peanut he is!!

After a brief issue in the hospital with jaundice, and some time on the light bed, Marshall was given a thumbs up at his appointment on Friday.
He is doing very well and he's almost back up to his birth weight already!
Now, if only someone could teach him that he's suppose to sleep during the hours of 10pm and 4am :).

Ok, you've read enough.
Here are the pictures.

Just born.

A little more awake!

I've been a little MIA on my blog lately and I would imagine that might continue for awhile. Sorry about that :). With 3 little boys at home now and one of those being a needy newborn, I don't imagine I'll have a lot of time for blogging, but who knows. I'll do my best to keep the pictures coming.

Peter has been home on paternity leave for a week now and he'll be heading back to work tomorrow. Wish me luck as tomorrow is also a preschool day for Brady (this could be interesting--and we might have to consider taking up the offer we received from another parent to bring Brady to school sometimes).

Life as a new mommy has so many new challenges, but I am having a great time and trying my best to enjoy every minute of it!
