{Introducing Gunnar Dean Patino...!}

Gunnar has finally arrived....on Mar. 23. He is the most {adorable }thing ever and he is such a good baby..!! He nurses around the clock but I think he just wants to be held by me and luckily Bells is not a jealous toddler..she just does her own thing and doesn't even acknowledge him unless he is wailing and then she points to him and says "he's sad"!! cute..! My labor went good, I actually had an hour and half labor by the time I got to the hospital..which was crazy, that's never happened, but I wanted to wait it out because I knew I wouldn't see the younger kids for a couple days once I got in there. ( because of the H1N1 flu season). Luckily I was given an epidural and as soon as that kicked in I had to start pushing....that took a little bit because his shoulders got stuck, but then he finally came out and WHOA he was big...a whoppin 8 pounds 13 ounces....crazy. I am soo glad I was only 1 day overdue....he would have been huge if I went longer..geesh!! Everything went perfect and the hospital (Gilbert Mercy) staff was awesome to us! The only sad thing was that my labor was so fast we didn't get a chance to get our cameras for the birth..owell...Here are some pics of Gunnar....next week my friend Holly is taking his newborn pics...can't wait...check out her amazing talent at bloggingwithholly.blogspot.com
Here is me the night before I went into labor....I am huge...lol



I am soo in love with this little man.....
