Baby On Board

Life is amazing!  I don't understand how anyone with a baby can get anything done EVER!  And I don't mean because they keep you busy with crying and changing diapers and all that stuff people try to say to make you afraid of parenthood.  I mean, I could literally sit all day and stare at his cute face.  He has bewitched me!  I am absolutely obsessed with our new son.


The coming of Baby Trekker was quite the adventure!  He was cozy as could be in mommy's tummy, so we finally decided to induce him after 11 long days of no-shows.  I was most definitely doing the happy dance when the time finally came.



Long, crazy story short:  After a good three hours of pushing with an epidural that pretty much stopped working, we decided his 15" head was NOT going to fit and switched to a completely-knock-me-out C-section.  When I woke up an hour later I was handed a 22" inch long, 10 pound 3 1/2 ounce, healthy baby boy.  And our lives changed forever.


I have so much I want to say about what it's like.  How my heart melts when I watch him with his dad, or the awe and testimony of God's miracles when I feel his warm, little skin, or soaking in his undescribable, sweet baby smell.  But I think the best way to explain how wonderful the last month and a half has been would be through pictures.
