Introducing The Newest Hartman

My I present to you (very late!) the newest Hartman.  Gage Wesley Hartman joined us at 1:04 on Tuesday, March 8, 2016.
I went in on that Monday at 40 weeks and 5 days.  I had wanted to go into labor but when our Dr. offered induction I said YES. ;)  I had taken Shane with me to that appointment to have him help and tell the Dr. we wanted to wait it out but I didn't even give him the chance. Ha!

The induction took ALL day.  I thought I was never going to progress!  I had little problems though and it was peaceful.  

Gage weighed 8lbs 7 oz and was 21 inches long.   I have shared on here before how I didn't get to see Ella's feet.  I'll never take these little tootsies for granted. 

We delivered Gage, celebrated him, and then I ate!  I WAS SO hungry.  Ha!  Then we all got to sleep.  Since we didn't tell anyone that he was a boy we wanted to tell the kids first.  So family all just got a "baby is here and all is good" text. 

Visiting hours weren't till 10 am so people had to wait a long time!  The kids were so excited!  It was sweet to see them hold Gage. 

My heart grew for another little one that day.  We didn't really plan on having Gage but the Lord had other plans.  I was holding him and burst into tears.  I didn't even know I needed him in my life that much until I was looking at his sweet little face. 
Clearly, he looks like his brothers!  Gracie and Ella had lighter hair and the boys all had this dark hair.  Gavin had more but Graham had about this amount. 

We are so blessed to have this little one.  It makes life crazier but I wouldn't have it any other way.
