5 Days

Today was Liam's due date, and he's been here for 5 days already. I've been just thinking about all of the things I want to write about. This could be a really long post, but I just don't think I have the energy to unload everything in words right now. My heart is so full, this has been the most incredible week of my life. God is so good. Being a parent is so fun. Recovering from giving birth is not as hard for me as I was expecting it to be, in some respects, but much more difficult in others. I love this little boy and my husband more than I ever, ever thought I would. And, I'm so unbelievably humbled by who God is and how amazingly He has blessed us with this little life. In spite of myself, He gave us the most precious gift. I love being a Mom, I just can't stop kissing his little face.

Here is my heart in a little person:

I have so many thoughts (and overwhelming emotions because of hormones!) about labor and delivery, his name, our first few days in the hospital, breast feeding, being a mom, watching Andrew be a Daddy, turning our parents into Grandparents, and our sisters into Aunts (Scott is already an Uncle, but is nonetheless important!), and about 100 other things.

But, I have to go provide nourishment for my son. I promise I'll be back soon.

Thanks for caring for us!

He is so cute. I am so excited for you both. I know exactly what you mean. Its like God pulled out your heart and put it in the form of another human being. It is truly an honor to be a mom and I know you will be an amazing one!
