Finnegan Iya Urban

Our precious son, Finn, was born August 23 at 7:39 am. After two full days (roughly 48 hours of labor), he decided to come by c-section because his heart was not tolerating labor anymore. My kids just don't fit through my body, which is okay. We're just glad he's okay and is here and gorgeous.

Finn weighed 7lbs 4oz and was 19 inches long. We knew that ultrasound doctor was wrong in his assumption that something "was wrong with him" and that he was "too small".  He's such a blessing and is a perfect little gift from Above.

It's amazing how much he looks like Kaia. It takes me back a lot, and I remember how unfair her life was to her. But I hope little Finn can life a full and happy life for her and along side her.

I'm very tired, and they say you should sleep when baby is sleeping. Right now, he's sleeping. So, I'll sign off with a few pics. I have a bunch on my facebook page.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers through the pregnancy and birth of our little love.

judge not

I saw this today on 1 in 100's facebook page and had to share. It's so true, and some people need this advice. Judge not, lest ye be judged yourself. ;)
"Do not judge the bereaved mother. She comes in many forms. She is
breathing, but she is dying. She may look young, but inside she has
become ancient. She smiles, but her heart sobs. She walks, she talks,
she cooks, she cleans, she works, she IS, but she IS NOT, all at once. She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity." Donna Jones

One year of bliss down....50+ to go.

Today is the day I said "I do" to my amazing husband, one year ago. I cannot believe it's been a year already! We have become such a team, we truly have "become one". I thank God every day for Eric. He's my best friend, such a supportive partner, a voice of reason (when my head gets wacky!) and such a positive person to walk this path of life we are on. PLUS, he gave me the two greatest gifts of my daughter and my ? (we'll find out super soon here!).

I feel so blessed to have married someone so perfect for me. And I'm so excited to watch him grow as a father, as my partner and as himself through time.

I have to say, I'm a little depressed we didn't get to spend our 1st anniversary here again:

Going through our photos is so bittersweet. We had an amazing time, but we also had just lost our daughter, one month before. I am truly thankful that I had such a beacon of light in such a dark time though. Thank you, my HUSBAND! And I love you more and more each day!

Your WIFE!!!
