It’s a . . . . BOY! (Maternity Leave Note)

By |

Little Vinnie Dean arrived on Sunday, September 23rd, 8 days early. I’ll write about my entire birth at a later date. But, I will tell you he panicked me. I had big plans for those last 8 days – a life of leisure on the couch and running last minute errands, moments to myself before giving 18+ years to someone else….. But Vinnie was ready and my water broke at 4 am on Sept 23rd. I tried to hold him in for a few hours – seriously. I thought maybe I could will labor to stop. No such luck.

Over a week later I am so happy I have had this extra time with my little man. What a gift these 8 days have been. Not that they have been easy. WOW. Not easy at all. But awesome in every way – even in the roughest moments (like many of the moments between his birth and the 9 DAYS it took my milk to come in…)

Here is our first family photo:

I probably won’t be posting much, if any, in the next few weeks. As I will be spending as much time as possible looking at this face:

If you have any questions for me, feel free to email me at Sara@FitHealthyMoms.com. Just know it may take me a couple days to get back to you. It’s hard juggling a baby and a laptop!!

Thank you for all your support and patience during this amazing time. I can’t wait to share more of my journey with you!

Hi Sara,
Congratulations from Australia!!! And welcome little Vinnie Dean. What a lucky little boy to have such a lovely and inspiring mum. I’ve been doing your workouts since I had my baby girl in Feb and feel so much better for it. You just inspire me to get out there. I even had my 10year old nephew and 8year old niece join in the other day!!!
I hope you enjoy this magical journey and new love affair with your newest man :-)
Best wishes,
Linda
Ps the really tough bit goes faster than you think it will :-)
