Well, of course he is here. He was born on the eight in a C section. While I can not say that a C section is fun, I can say that everything went well and that I am healing better than I expected.
Michael Damian Hauk looks so much like his big brother, but he has a much different character. He seems much more mellow and sleeps at least a bit better, which I hope will translate in sleeping a LOT better in a few more weeks. (hopefully in two more weeks because after that my mom needs to go home and then my days of day naps will be over!).
I have had a lovely time recovering with the help of my mother in law, my mother and my best friend. And I have done very little, except take care of Michael and heap love on Joseph who adores his little brother and is not jealous as I had feared. Of course it is exhausting to keep my wild boy in check when HE wants to heap love on Michael by heaping himself on him in one rambunctuous jump, or if he wants to climb into the stroller. But it is lovely to see him give his baby brother kisses, help changing diaper, and ask about "the Michael". I must have done something well, right?
Michael Damian was born on the eight, had his first official portrait session on the 19th and was baptized on the 21st. Here follows a BUNCH of pictures!
