1st Moments

It took me about 2 weeks to get this layout done, but I finally finished it!

These photo’s were taken right after I nursed Harper for the first time, which means that he was only about an hour old when we took them. I can still remember this so vividly, like it was yesterday, not already over 2 months ago.

The journaling reads:

Although you delivery into this world was rather speedy, it was still long (and painful) enough that I was glad that part of the process was over. After the nurse made sure that your airway was clear, she promptly wrapped you in a blanket, put a newborn hat on you, and handed you to me. Your dad and I just stared at you for the longest time, taking in all of your features, silently congratulating ourselves for bringing a new, healthy baby into our world. I nursed you a little as we waited for all the paperwork to be filled out and while they figured out which hospital room we would spend the next 24 hours in. I was really surprised that they didn’t take you away from me right away as they had with your sister and brother. They let me and your dad hold you for the longest time, never rushing us; letting us bond with you and give you the love we were bursting to share. Just as your sister and brother before you, you are a dream come true, and I am forever grateful to have you in my life.
