Greyson Michael. Birth Day. 11.10.10

We are so happy to introduce our little man.

Greyson Michael…

He was born on Wednesday, 11.10.10 at 2:05 am, weighing in at 10lbs. 6 oz. and 21 inches long…he arrived 10 days early.

I had a beautiful and easy labor ending in the most horrible 15 minutes of pushing. My epidural decided to go on vacation and I struggled intensely with wrapping my head around the sudden onset of pain. I can say with all the honestly and drama that I can muster, that it was the worst 15 minutes of my life…but then they handed me this….

and my heart was so full ….overwhelming gratitude, love beyond measure, pure bliss.

He’s perfectly squishy, pink, and snorts quite a bit.

He has at least three chins, beautiful little lips, and a head full of dark brown hair.

He has stolen our hearts and completed our family.

He was welcomed into the world with his dad and I, the doctor and nurse, and a whole bunch of  family and friends cheering us on from the waiting room party outside our door. It absolutely  meant the world to me to have everyone there supporting us. Our own private cheering section. How amazing is that.

We took our little rocker baby home on Friday. It is now the six of us. Funny how it instantly seems like this is how it’s always been.

The sleep is scarce. The laundry and diapers are plenty. The love and memories being made trump all.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Psalm 139:14

    He is so precious! I love his little round face! Congrats to you and your family!

    Those last 15 minutes might have been the hardest thing you ever did, but it had one of the biggest payouts. And that makes it all worth it!

    congratulations! I love how chunky he is! And I am SOOOOOO sorry your epidural wore off. I am praying that that doesn’t happen to me with Connor. I might not make it if it does 🙂

    […] After our November addition, we have settled back into a routine around here although, I am sure as I am typing this, there is some plan being formulated that will throw this current routine right out the window. For now, a typical day for me has no starting point  because my days and nights have mushed into one 24 hour super day. […]
