The little things in life

I can admit now that during this couple of days sleep has been almost absent. It does not matter if its morning or night, I feel just as tired. Who could have thought that such a small boy with a very tiny digestive system could go through so many diapers in a day. I have to admit that it makes me VERY happy when I know that he has a dirty diaper, because this means that he is eating!!! Little Gabriel has been struggling a little bit with breast feeding. It is because of this, that when he gets a dirty diaper, I know that he is getting some food.

It is the little things in life that mean the most. He will eventually not struggle eating, and eventually will be able to sleep a whole night without waking up, someday he will be able to go to potty by himself. Until then Erin and I will enjoy the blessing that it is to be a parent, waking up about every 2 hours , and not remembering if its day or night, or when was the last time we had something to eat, wondering if the last time he woke up was 1 minute ago or 1 hour ago.

I say it again, I admire parents and the sacrifices they make, especially mothers. I cannot believe the kind of energy and patience that Erin has and the love that she shows little Gabriel. No matter how loud he cries and how much attention he needs, Erin just calms him down. Love you Erin ;)

(Our little boy is 3 days old)

Our little BIG guy

Today we left the hospital. Up until now little Gabriel has been wearing the little shirts that the hospital gave us. Since he peed on two of them when we were changing him, we changed him into something of ours. As you can see he could not quite fill it in. He looks just adorable. We know it wont be long until he fills them. So we will enjoy the fact that he just looks so cute in his new clothes.

LIttle Gabriel is here!!!

Little Gabriel Lucas Guerrero. He arrived at 12:04 AM October 21st, the day of our second wedding anniversary. He weighed 7lbs & 8oz and measured 20 1/2 inches. We adore him and love him so very much. It is hard to explain, but all of you parents out there know what I am talking about.
Erin is doing great! She was able to do it naturally and without any drugs!!!

We were hoping he would come the 20th or earlier, but I think he knew what he was doing and waited four extra minutes to give us the best anniversary present.

He is healthy and there seems to be no problems. I have so many pictures but I can only post this phone picture until we have more time.

Thanks to everyone for their support and love. This is by far the best experience of our lives!

The Latest Picture Update

This is the most recent picture of Erin's belly. I bet little Gabriel is having a pretty good time in there. It is warm and cozy...I think :)

Maybe he will be here this weekend, maybe not! It is so exciting! Every time I receive a text message or a call when I am away ,my stomach turns and my heart starts going so fast with the anticipation that he might be coming!

The Time is Near

The time is near. Little Gabriel could be here any minute now. Although he most likely will wait until his due date, we cannot stop thinking that he might be here earlier. We are under two weeks to go. When I say we, I mean Erin. There has been small contractions and some soreness. It has become a bit difficult to sit or stand for long periods of time. Even with all the change that Erin has experienced, she is just excited and grateful for this blessing and experience, and so am I!

Here are some pictures of Erin and the baby. We have not been really good at taking pictures of her belly, but here are some.

There are some pictures that I still have to add, but I figured I better post the ones I have just in case little Gabe decides to surprise us.
