This is the time where I feel like mush and want to go all soft on you and talk about the 'amazingness' of motherhood and the uncontrollable amount of love I have for my new son, but I will refrain. :)
But don't worry, I won't even begin to start complaining about the lack of sleep or nipple pain either. I love it all so much. Every second of it.
I have been home from the hospital since Sunday and really have been feeling great. Recovering from a c-section is not at all as bad as I would have expected. Hubs is amazing, and I look at him in awe everyday. He's such a good daddy. Such a natural.
And Bradley, oh Bradley. You had me at "Waahh." As we cuddled at home on Tuesday the 9th it was amazing to look down and see our baby boy already in our arms on his due date. I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am for the doctors who put the needs of my baby first, and practiced such amazing medicine. They are unbelievable. For the cord to have been wrapped 3 times around his little neck, and to have him here and so healthy is such a blessing.
Another blessing was our nurse Angela. She was the nurse that started at 7am on Thursday the 4th. It was 7pm that day when she was supposed to be getting off her shift when they decided to take me by c-section. She decided to stay late and be with me all through my surgery so I could have a familiar face. She was so kind, and so sweet.
Today we had a home care visit from another nurse. Bradley left the hospital weighing 6lbs 15oz and today he weighs 7lbs 5oz. Go boobs, go! He is sleeping, peeing and pooping. So he is doing is job. I just look at him and my heart melts. It was worth everything, EVERYTHING. Hubs and I were talking today and it's just so amazing that with every follicle that I grew over the months, and every sperm that was shot up there, Bradley was the one who was created. He was the one who decided to stick it out with us. Thank you little B, you are my hero.
