A Little Hormonal and a lot Happy,

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!

This is a precious photo! I have found that since becoming a mom, I cry at a lot of things I never used to cry at before. Even now when my babies are 12, 8, and 5. :)

Congrats! Your little Emily is beautiful. Enjoy the journey through the what we have called the "Dead-Ass Tired Club"! And since I have had children, I too cry a lot more too. We are blessed!
