If there's one thing I love binging on it's birth stories. The good, the bad, and the meconium-covered, I love it all! The miracle of childbirth never ceases to amaze me and learning how precious babies come into the world is such a wonderful blessing.
To me it's such a gift when mother's share their stories so I thought I would share mine here.
...There she was all gooey and adorable. It was without a doubt the most amazing and surreal experience...
All I could say was "Oh my God, oh my God, he's here he's here, thank you God" as I tickled his feet to get a nice solid cry out of him. Once he gave me a few good screams I pulled him across my chest and he instantly latched.
...and finally with a sudden feeling of relief, the best words "Reach down and grab your baby". I sat up, reached my hands down between my legs, and grabbed hold of my squishy, slippery, squirmy, and BIG baby. I pulled the baby to me, looked down at my little miracle, and said "Hi baby" over and over again.
