He’s healthy and content, and I am so thankful.
My first baby’s birth was long, difficult, and dramatic, but this labor was quite different, happening mostly in the twenty minute car ride to the hospital. The doctor declared we would have a baby within the hour, which meant I only had a couple of minutes to transition between relief, fear, and freaking out before determining that I could do this. Six pushes later, we had our baby boy.
Now we are in those quiet few days where I get to stay in bed and relax and listen to those chirps and coos that only newborns make.
It will be quiet here for a few days too, and then I’ll begin sharing the posts I’ve been saving up. I’ve got quite a bit in store for you, because I want you to have good stuff to read while I take a little vacation with this sweetheart.
