Emory Chase is here!

Hey there!!! Since my last post, I have had a baby!!! Lol. Mr. Emory Chase was born on Sunday, July 31st at 8:49 am. He was exactly one week early. My labor wasn't easy but it went well. I wanted a natural birth and I am proud to say that I did it without any labor inducing medication or epidural. Now the verdict is still out on if I will ever "go natural" again but I was definitely proud of myself. Having my two besties and my hubby there every step of the way really was my saving grace.

Well, I'm three weeks postpartum and I'm doing well...sleep deprived...but doing well. Newborns are so much work but Emory is such a sweet little guy. It is definitely an adjustment going from one to two children but Jayden is happy to be a big brother (and have someone he can boss around). We are just taking it one day at a time. I salute single mothers because I don't know what I would do without the help and support of my husband. I thank God for my village...

I am so grateful to God for what he has entrusted to me...two princes. I am still trying to process the fact that I have two children! It's exciting and scary all at the same time. Raising two black sons in this generation comes with its own challenges. It is my daily prayer that God would give me the wisdom to raise them well and that he would protect them from the world's vices. God has been so good to my family so I am confident that he will see us through. I will check back in soon and let you know how Emory is doing. Keep us in your prayers! :-)

Here are a couple of pics...
