Meet our sweet BOY!!!!


More to come but some pictures for now. We are all home safe. Now just some rest, sleep and just basking in the miracle of it all. Thanks everyone for all your love, help and prayers for us- we did it!!!


An hour after he was born, the relief and the sheer amount of love you feel after is like no other time in life.







Joe says, "Yes, put that one on, this is exactly how i felt......

GORGEOUS!! I am crying all over again and screaming inside (this time)!! Love Love Love the pics - I think we all have a pic of our husbands after several days of labor - looking much like Joe! I remember our Pediatrician telling Mark "You look like a Zombie Man."
I am so happy for you and sooooo proud of your strength - and Joe's strength!!! I meant to ask you today on the phone what your reaction was when you found out he was a boy - were you shocked or just relieved? That's a big question, I know. Just wondering the general thought!!
I LOVE YOU and can't wait to meet Little Mr. Schroeder!!

Oh, Wendy...he is so beautiful and you all look super happy, how can you not be? Congrats! Looks like you went to the hospital, i am anxious for the labor story when you are ready to tell it! You are so right about the amount of love...people always question if they "have enough love" for more than one ,and as soon as the next baby comes out, it is automatic...you always have enough! Precious...welcome to the world of boys! :) he he, you will love it. look forward to seeing you all, maybe in August!
