What a week — The Bump
Snarky and T-TTC

What a week

I think everyone I'm friends with on FB knows, but for everyone else I "know" here's the latest. Bennett Miles arrived on his own on Sunday via an amazingly successful vbac. He was 8 lbs, 1 oz and 20.75" long. It was awesome, incredible, etc. I will get a full birth story posted in my blog sometime soon. We are doing great, with the exception of awful hemmies and little B had elevated bilirubin levels so we had to stay an extra day at the hospital and didn't get home until late this afternoon. My parents had been staying at our house taking care of S and called this morning to tell us our middle fur baby collapsed and died. She had been not eating much the past week or so and I was in hopes that as soon as we got discharged, DH could take her to the vet. Apparently she couldn't hang on that long. We didn't get to say goodbye and I'm a wreck. I feel like the worlds worst dog mommy--too busy with myself and the kids to do something. So we gained and lost a family member this week.
