We are so happy to introduce our little man.
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.
