I hope y'all are settling in well and you are getting as much rest as possible. You've done such a wonderful job - you deserve a month on Maui (but I bet you'll be happy with a nap!).

Hi Meredith-
Congratulations on a beautiful little baby boy! He's precious, and I am so glad for the good care you had during your pregnancy that kept both you and your sweet little baby safe. I am trying to be patient, because I know that blogging is probably the last thing on your mind right now, but....I cannot wait to hear all the details on everything!!! Oh, how I hope that you update all of us soon! Since most of us can't come and visit you in person, it's the next best thing!! Congratulations, and sending best wishes and love your way! Welcome Home!! :-)

I hope you and your beautiful son are doing ok now. I have been very worried about the complications you must have experienced that kept you guys in the hospital for a week. When you are up to it, please let us know how you are doing. Everyone has been concerned and are glad you are now home. I hope you feel up to blogging again soon and can share Andrew's and Elise's reactions to their new brother.
