On November 2, 2011 at 7:29am, in a small town in Indiana,
I held and looked at my third child that I pushed out into this world.

My heart stopped as she passed him up to me. Overcome, I couldn't even cry.
He was too beautiful.

I am pleased to officially say his name
Mr. Justin Alan

(from here on out Mr. J)

8 pounds, 20 inches
my second baby born naturally.
(yes, I totally begged for an epidural about an hour before he was born)

Things are settling down in the Crooked house.
Big Brother JC is an old pro at this...

Miss E is slowly getting used to mom's arms
being full, but can give one heck of a
head kiss to the baby.
(and head smacks...she is working on it)

as for the main man, Mr. J?
He's a good napper.
