♥ Here He is! Our NEW addition to the Family ♥

Hi Everyone! I am so sorry I have been missing for soo long! Well, we have our new addition to the family! His name is Santino and was born on August 28th at 9:33 in the morning! He weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and was 22 inches long! He is a very happy and healthy little boy who has melted our hearts!
My C-section was originally scheduled for the 26th, as many of you may remember. On the 25th my hubby went to the emergency room after being sick all night long. Well, long story short, he had food poisoning from some Crab legs he ate a few days before. At first they thought it was C-Diff, which is a very contagious and a dangerous disease. It is transferred from people not washing their hands and then cooking your food! Yuck! I don't think we will be going out to dinner anytime soon! So they had him in isolation and he wasn't released from the hospital until Friday the 27th after he was cleared!! So my C-section was postponed until that Saturday the 28th! Crazy! Nothing ever goes as planned! But thankfully, my hubby and son's are all perfectly healthy!I thank God every day!
I was released a day early from the hospital, so that was a good thing! I am feeling great and doing good. Antonio is loving being a BIG brother and he just started Pre-School on the 8th. He loves school! He wants to go ALL the time!! Here he is on his first day!
Well, I just wanted to stop in to say hi and share some pics with you! I hope all is well with all of you and your families! God Bless you all!! I'll be back soon!

Hugs....
