My little man is here and he is such an amazing little boy. His name is Julian Joseph. He arrived on November 8th at 4:15pm via c-section. The experience of having a baby via c-section was totally different then the experience that I had delivering Isabella. I brought a picture of Isabella to the hospital with me. I needed to have her there with me just as she would have been if she was here. My recovery is proving to be quite different as well. My husband has really stepped up to the plate by taking care of alot of the household duties (laundry, dishes, meals) as well as,asking sure that I always have a full glass of water and have taken my medication. Being that I could not bend in the first week he also was responsible for diaper duty and I was his assistant. Thank goodness for Frank. Julian is such an amazing little guy. He is a big boy who was born at pounds 8 pounds 13. At his Dr. Apt. today he weighed in at 9 pounds 1. I have heard from so many moms of boys to watch out for their spray when yu are changing them. Today Julian proved them right. While changing him today he showered himself and me with a nice urine shower. Being a mom to a little boy is a whole new experience to me. I would not change it for anything. I have caught myself many times calling Julian Bella. While I am holding him I could convince myself that he is her. He looks like her and reminds me so much of her. I often see him looking out at "nothing" and concentrating so intently. I just know that he is looking at her. She would not miss her little brothers presence for anything. Bella, I miss you so much but I know that you are here with us always. You will alwaysbe my girl. I love you and know that you're going to be the best big sister ever. u

Oh Marisa, I am so happy for you. As I was reading your blog I could just picture it all in my mind, you holding your little guy. You are such an amazing mommy and for sure your Bella is always with you. Keep her memory alive and know that Julian will come to know his big sister well. Congrats to you, Frank and Bella. I can't wait to meet your little man. xoxoxoxoxoxo

It's been such a pleasure to have a little nephew and to have fallen in love with him instantly.
He is a charmer, just like Isabella!
Isabella will always be your first born, the big sis, my awesome and only niece and God daughter.
Her presence is and always will be so strong with all of your family and friends who love her so much.
