The last few days have been nothing short of amazing. Thank goodness I packed my bags when I did, huh? Currently, I'm sleep deprived, but couldn't be happier. I never knew I could love a human being as much as I love Emily and my husband is a close second. When we were married I thought I loved him. I mean, of course I did, but now its a whole different kind of love.
My hormones are also doing all sorts of crazy things. Sometimes I just look at Emily and tear up. I want to cry my eyes out for no apparent reason and it takes a lot of restraint not to. Sometimes when I look at my empty, still swollen belly I want to cry. When I think of how short of time Emily is going to be this amazingly small I want to cry.
And when I take photos like this one I want to cry...
Good lands... my aching heart.
There is so much I am going to post about and I have family coming in from all points of the East Coast over the next few days. Its going to be a busy week, but so far Emily is as content and amazing a baby as I could ever hope for so hopefully I can find some time to write all about my adventures of laboring and delivering on Labor Day!
Also, to end on a funny note...
When I came home from the hospital this afternoon and opened my computer for the first time I noticed my browser was left open. The page was where I had Googled "How to tell if labor is real." Guess I figured it out!
