Baby Jackson

Jackson Jeffrey Schramm was born on Monday, February 15th at 2:36 pm. He weighed 9 lbs even and was 21.5" long. I went in at 7 am to be induced and things progressed very quickly. The delivery went pretty well except that it took a while to get my pain managed so I was seriously uncomfortable (I admire all the women that can do childbirth naturally because it's freakin' painful). We left the hospital about 24 hours after he was born and have been adjusting to life at home. Unfortunately I've been suffering from postpartum depression, but seem to be pulling out of it thanks to the support of my husband, mom, and a wonderful psychiatrist. I'm so grateful to have a healthy beautiful boy and can't wait to watch his personality develop. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers on my behalf. I'll try to keep the pictures coming.

Snow in Dallas

Yesterday morning we woke up to several inches of snow, a rarity in Dallas. Lexi and Jeff wasted no time getting outside and building a snowman. It's probably only the third time Lexi has ever seen snow so it was fun that she was able to get some play time in. I was convinced that I was going to go into labor because everything was closed and the roads were a mess, but apparently record snowfall won't persuade this kid to come out. I'm actually going in on Monday to be induced so check back in a few days for pictures of our little boy.
