It has been just shy of three months since John Samuel was born. (I’ve really been MIA from blogging) There’s absolutely no way to fully explain the joy of a brand new baby. A baby that is yours in fact. John arrived on October 23 at 5:55 AM. I had prayed that I would be able to have a natural birth and God answered my prayer. It was the worst pain of my life but I knew it was purposeful and that I would not regret choosing to go natural. Hiring a doula gave me great confidence in addition to my husband’s support. She had me up and going during contractions and everything! As crazy at it may seem, I am so glad I was able to feel everything and that I didn’t have to get the needle of an epidural. Our entire experience at Baylor University Medical Center here in Dallas was exceptional. I am just so blessed that the entire birthing process went so well.
John has made our marriage complete. We just love him to pieces. I love watching Jeremiah being a new dad. I’ve never seen this part of him and I am just amazed by him. He is truly going to be #1 Daddy. I never knew I had the capacity to love like this. He is such a sweet-natured boy who I truly believe has great things in store for him. As I write this, I’m pretty exhausted but so thankful for so much. So much has changed yet so much has stayed the same. I’m really looking forward to a full night’s sleep sometime soon, but I hope to be content no matter what the circumstance or how many hours I get.
John Samuel- Welcome to Mommy’s blog. I’m excited to write in the new year of 2009 and give my readers updates about you. You are a gift from above and it would be selfish for me to keep you all to myself so my reader’s are going to get to know you too. I hope you’re having a good nap right now. Sleep sweet my precious boy.
