Oliver James

And so here he is...I know that it has been 2 weeks and no word, but I've been adjusting and enjoying my new son; Oliver James.
Just so you all know, my sons: Jack Henry & Oliver James are NOT named after Thomas the Tank Engine characters- it just so happens that there are engines with those names; although Jack would have to disagree. Another sidenote- you do not have to refer to them by their first and middle name..we do so with Jack due to an uprising in the popularity of his name- which is another rant all of its own!
So here is the newest edition and I shortly after recovery. I must say that I hate "recovery". I can't stand not being in control of my own body. I kept writhing my shoulders thinking that would quicken the process. The spinal took so long to wear off.

Spinals aren't as bad as they sound. I was terrified, but it was a much quicker and easier process that the epidural. I remember when the lovely medicine man was injecting the spinal saying to myself "...but it goes to 11!"
I also must say that I adore the nurses at Bryn Mawr...they were fanny-tastic. I knew I loved them when they injected sweet dilaudid into my IV. I am allergic to percocit- oh well!
Here is a close up of the boy:
Finally, for now I must sing the praises of my older son, who is the best big brother EVER! I was sure that there would be backlash- but no, just love. I am not stupid, I am sure that a sibling war will come upon us sooner or later, but for now- I am lovin' the love here at Team Thompson!

Tune in for more adventures of Jack & Oliver!
