Drew…MY Newborn! {Indianapolis Newborn Photographer}

Our family has expanded from three to four!  We welcomed Andrew (Drew) Joseph Stacy on February 6th at 9:05pm.  He weighed 5 lbs, 11 oz and was 19 3/4 inches long.

My pregnancy wasn’t the easiest.  I had some itching off and on, most likely due to cholestasis, a condition that I dealt with during Ava’s pregnancy as well.  I also experienced pre-term labor and was put on modified bed rest for a few weeks.  At 37 weeks, 3 days, I began itching again and due to the dangers of cholestasis to the baby around 37-38 weeks, my doctor decided to induce me.  Drew was having a lot of heart decelerations with my contractions and I had to keep an oxygen mask on for much of my labor.  Thankfully after just 8 pushes, he was born completely healthy!

He is eating like a champ and gained almost a full pound this past week!  While Ava was a petite little baby, I am guessing that Drew will end up being a chubby guy…and I honestly can’t WAIT for all those rolls to appear on his arms and legs. ♥

Ava is thrilled with her baby brother.  I cannot wait to watch these two grow up together!

So happy for you! He is so adorable, and I’m glad he was born healthy. Ava is going to be such a sweet big sister. 🙂

They are all so cute, but the one with him on the blue blanket is my fave!!!
