2.5 Days Old

Many thanks to all you guys (you are awesome, by the way!) for the congratulations and heartfelt comments while I was in labour and afterwards, when we were enjoying those first moments with our son.  We have read over each of your words – and were SO touched.  So, thank you!! The birth story is coming, but will be a few days.  This little man seems to have his days and nights mixed up, making his Mamas VERY tired.  Every minute is worth it though; he is a little angel.  I still can’t stop staring at him and help being overcome with emotion.  How this new little person has changed us already.  Wow.  I have so many emotions and thoughts and can’t wait to write about them when I’m able.  But, Lachlan doesn’t give me too much time right now, so this post will be short and sweet (and I know you really came for photos anyway!!).  The unmedicated homebirth was everything we hoped it would be – beautiful and empowering, yet also the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through.  Karli was absolutely AMAZING during it all.  More to come on that too….but, honestly, I could not have made it through without her.  Our little darling was a big boy, and came out with his hand next to his face…..so I have a 2nd degree tear that is trying to heal.  She has been right there every step of the way, helping me with everything that goes along with recovering from childbirth.  My love for her has only gotten stronger, though I never thought it could.  I’ve had several weepy moments….Anyway, that’s about it for now.  Our boy is waking up from a very short nap and is looking hungry.  My milk came in last night and he wants it all the time, or so it seems.  More updates and birth story coming when I can.  Thanks again girls, you guys are the best.  Oh, and pictures….of course…..because that’s really what you want! Our lovely little man…..I still can’t get over that he is finally here after so much waiting….it was so worth the wait………………….and we are more in love then we ever thought we could be……
