Michael Brayden Kolb

Our beautiful little boy!!!

9 months 4 weeks...hours before Michael was born

Michael Brayden Kolb has arrived, he was born January 8, 2010 at 10:36 am. He weighed 7lbs. 12oz. and is absolutely perfect! The C-section went very well and was surprisingly quick.

Recovery has been quick and easy as well, it seems that the second time around you really don't have too much time to relax with a 3yr old so I've quickly adapted and to be honest feel great! I am very thankful for that, in addition to being thankful for all the help that our families offered. Our gratitude is never ending for all that they have done, we are SO lucky to have such incredible families.

Blake has really taken to his role as "big brother" he is so in love with Michael and wants to hug and kiss him all the time. When Michael cries Blake comes running and rubs his head saying "it will be okay baby Michael." I am very relieved, I thought that there would be more jealously but surprisingly there is barely any at all.

Life with a toddler and an infant is not a walk in the park, that's for sure however; I am managing and to be honest loving it. I can't lie and say that there aren't moments that I fantasize about being on the beach in Hawaii sipping a Mai Tai when Blake is running around like Dennis the Menace and Michael has completely pooped his diaper and its up his back....but I wouldn't have it any other way. I know Adam thinks I am crazy but I am 100% certain that I want another one of these little miracles...even two more!! Children are such a blessing and they grow so fast that I am trying to soak up every moment with them despite my lack of sleep, haha.

Overall life is good and we are feeling very very blessed...
