All About Welcoming Gradyn Everet Murphy to the World!

***ALL ABOUT BABY – Personal, Pictures and Cuteness Overload – YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED***

HE IS FINALLY here!  And actually 1 week old TODAY!!!

I’m so very excited to introduce:

Gradyn (Grady) Everet Murphy on March 28, 2014 9:49pm 7lbs 10oz, 20 3/4″!

It was a crazy long pregnancy with a lot of up and downs and scary moments, but God saw us all the way to two days past his due date without any troubles in labor at all!  It was a long Friday in many ways, arrived at the hospital around 1:30pm and had no idea what was going to happen.  Fully ready for him, he did not want to engage and around 8:00pm we didn’t even know if he was going to arrive Friday night and thought maybe I’d get some meds for rest and we’d have a baby in the morning – the Doctor was about to be sent home – and my nurse came in just before 9:00pm and checked me because she saw Gradyn show some “signs” of engagement with his heart rate on the monitor.  She ran out of the room kinda quickly and they started prepping the room because Gradyn was READY and they thought it would be awhile – approximately 9 “pushes” later – I had a baby laying on my chest making me bawl, melting and growing my heart beyond measure!

So Friday night we got moved from labor and delivery into a recovery room SUITE and I mean a SWEET Suite!  I haven’t stayed at hotels THIS nice!  Huge deep whirlpool hot tub and huge shower with mood lighting in my own bathroom.  I had a huge queen size hospital bed – can you imagine!?!? seriously it was amazing! I had a huge pull out sofa, a rocking recliner, table and chairs, mini frig and huge flat screen tv.  Some awesome hospital food and just an amazing nursing staff!

He has been SO so SOOOO good!  Three nurses said he just is so happy and the quietest baby in the nursery.  When he was born he did not scream at all – even when they did the heel prick and the vitamin K, not a squeal from him!  SO BLESSED!  He eats fantastically on an awesome schedule, sleeps 3-4 hour stretches at night, (if only I could sleep when he sleeps right away!!!!) and is just all in all melting every ounce of me!!!

Here’s a little gallery of pictures from the past week – IF you want to see more and follow Gradyn’s little life a little closer you can https://www.facebook.com/MeganElizabethsBabyGem

    Well I had to comment b/c March 28th is my anniversary!! I soo should’ve guessed that date for the game to try to figure out when he’d get here!! Annddd…. My little boy had those pjs! (The blue w the puppy dogs.) He’s 9 months old now, n he had those a while back. Crazy how fast they grow!! Made my heart melt a little recognizing those pjs, and thinking about my little Mr bein so little! :-( Congrats and I will be praying for your family! (Also considering ctmh…. Can’t do it as a business at this time but I want a cartridge set anyway so now would be a good time to get that and get to try out some more of their products…gotta convince hubby tho!)
