Oh, that takes me RIGHT back! I started crying when I got to the part about you saying "He's staying RIGHT HERE". So sweet! They are really beautiful and I swear to you all the hell you're going through right now is totally worth it.

Thank you SO much for sharing that!!!! Your weeks prior to birth seem to echo what I'm going through- and I can only hope to have a wonderful birth story like yours.

Such cute little boys!
