Oswald Jonathan Chase

After 3 months,... I think it's about time I finally introduced you all to our newest addition! Meet Oswald Jonathan Chase!! Born 20th of October 2010, at 11:32am, weighing 7.6lbs and measuring 19in long. He has filled our house with much joy and it's hard to remember what life was like before him. That might just be because of the sleep deprivation and complete fatigue :) I'm sure it was a little less hectic, but we wouldn't have it any other way. We adore this little boy SOOO much. What a precious gift we have in him.
I had to spend eight days at the hospital with Os after he was born. I was so worried about being away from home for that long, but it really was such a restful and quiet time to recover and bond with my newest little boy. Matthew did a wonderful job taking care of liam and Hudson, and they came to visit us almost daily. (even if they only lasted for 15 minutes sometimes :) too many nifty things to get into at the hospital! My favorite part about them visiting was when they first walked into my room, they would be straining their necks trying to find Os. We had a lot of fun moments introducing them to their baby brother.
It was my first time to have a baby in Japan, and I can honestly say that I had a great experience. I loved all the nurses, and the traditional Japanese food that I got to eat (once they finally allowed me to eat again after my c-section... I didn't eat for 2 whole days!!) was SO yummy.
Here's Os moments after he was born! Matthew was able to stay with him like this while I was still in surgery.
Finally home with his brothers!! I think Os was wondering why his world got so noisy all of a sudden!
I am not exaggerating when I say that Os must be the most kissed baby around!! He is kissed CONSTANTLY, especially by Hudson. He is forever covered in slobber :)
Liam has also taken to Os beautifully and he will sit holding his baby brother for good chunks of time, 20-30 minutes at a time! (and if you know Liam, sitting still for any amount of time is quite an accomplishment!)
It's hard to believe that Os is already 3 months old! He has really started to interact with us lately with lots of smiles, and talking too! and for the most part we think he has a very laid back easy going nature. Sometimes I'm sad that I don't get to spend as much time as I'd like with him... I'm busy running after the older two. So take the moments that I can, and have been thankful that I am forced to sit down and be with him every 3-4 hours. I think God knew what he was doing when He made babies :) Even though these last 3 months have by no means been easy, they've been really really hard, adjusting to three has been more difficult than I though it would be! I'm already looking back and remembering fondly...

Carly, he is very handsome! What cute little boys you have! I can't imagine not eating for 2 whole days and nursing! You are wonder woman! At least they served Japanese food once you did start eating! One of the perks to having a baby in Japan! :) Praising God with you on little Os!
