I am exhausted. Sore. Cranky. Emotional. Cracked & bleeding (little TMI? hah)....
But more importantly I am in utter amazement at my body and what it was able to go through, thankful for the unbreakable bond I already feel between my husband and my daughter, and mostly - I am completely amazed by how much overwhelming love I have towards this little princess.
I have stared at her for hours. Kissed her sweet mouth a jillion times, and let tears roll down my cheeks while I play with her little fingers and toes. I am beyond thankful I have been trusted with such a miracle, and words cannot express how thankful I am to have been given a healthy, happy, beautiful baby girl.
I am so excited to write down my birth story. Labor was an INCREDIBLE experience, and I am a completely changed person because of it. I cannot wait to share all of the emotions we have experienced these last few days, but for now, I'm catching up on sleep (which I should be doing now but can't help but stare at her and daddy sleeping soundly), so I promise I will work on it shortly.
Thank you for keeping us in your prayers, for following our journey, for endless advice, listening to me complain, rant, rave and everything in between.
