When I grabbed the camera to offload Oliver’s outfit photos from yesterday I realized there were photos on the camera from our time at the hospital.
I thought this one in particular was pretty amazing.
My birth process was long. It wasn’t that it was all that difficult or painful. But it was a long process (about 17 hours or so) that involved a lot of waiting and it left us pretty tired. This is fairly early on in our stay before contractions got super strong and clearly spirits are still high. I love how absolutely blissed out I look. I don’t think I have ever seen a photo of myself where I look happier- and honestly, I never have been happier. The genuine joy all over my face is pretty amazing. I did a pretty impressive job of documenting my pregnancy, taking photos nearly everyday, but this one is by far my favorite.
I picked out a few other photos that I thought were really nice and I figured I would share them. Here is a small glimpse into the best day of our life.
Post epidural, munching on some ice chips…so sad. I was so thirsty and so hungry. I had my mother in law pick us up burritos that we inhaled after all was said and done. Of course I did. If I could have a last meal, my guess is- it would be a burrito. Any time we go on vacation etc my first meal back home is a burrito. God forbid I ever have to live in a state or country where they just don’t get burritos. haha.
Starting to look a little tired, but still happy.
Nothing better than seeing your husband become a father. Amazing how your heart can double for a man you already love and adore so much. Look at the way he looks down on his son, so proud and so in love. Such a precious first moment.Proud PaPa running the phones, keeping everyone updated and letting them know our little bundle of joy had arrive.
