better late than never!


Our precious son, Israel Cash Hagler, arrived September 30, at 11 pm.
It was the best day of my husband and I's life!
After a wonderful birth, we slept blissfully until the next morning.
The next 5 days, though, were some of the hardest days we've seen.
We spent those 5 days in the NICU, watching our son through a plastic box, only holding him during feedings. Every couple hours, my husband and I would dress in protective gowns, masks and gloves so that we could visit our newly born son.
Monday morning, which couldn't have come soon enough, we brought little Israel home!
Life has been full of sleepless nights, very little time to eat, forgetting to put on deodorant and definitely no time for make-up!
Every second has been worth it.
Our sweet baby boy is a miracle and we love him dearly!

Needless to say, my blogging may be sporatic at best, at least for the next few weeks.

  3. Oh, congratulations! It can be a little hard the first several weeks, baby and parents getting use to each other and the way things work. But, it all levels out very soon. Just take good care of each other, rest, and laugh a lot!

  33. Congrats!Don't forget the ol'trick of scrumpling a plastic grocery bag...(apparently it sounds similar to the noise from inside the womb)...that's calms them when they're crying/screaming and nothing seems to work... :-)
    They grow up so quickly..our green giant is 2 now..but seeing your Israel's pix takes me right back to that sweetie flakey skin first few weeks...enjoy
