oh my! yeah, the 8 hours was the hardest part. i had quit and checked out mentally and was just trying to sleep through as much of this ordeal as possible... my knees are bruised from getting on them to rock through so many contractions out of deep sleep..... i'm sure i will remember this better in a little while- it is fresh and hard.
he got my nose!!! he wouldn't stop moving for a clean pic (5 min post birth). he's really strong and pushed up off my chest right after birth and has been gazing into my eyes. i think he's the most amazing thing ever!!! so in love!
thanks mamas! praying for you all too as i go to rest and enjoy this new thing.
what a cutie pie! He has a very "manly" look to him :)
