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.
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.
