eep! such a treat today! The lovely Naomi from Rockstar Diaries was so sweet to share such a beautiful birth moment with us. Thanks so much Naomi! We love your little E!when i think back to that first week with eleanor, i am filled with so many emotions.
i remember the exact moment about an hour after eleanor arrived when the last nurse left our room and we were finally alone for the first time as a new little family. just me, my husband, and our new baby girl. it was 2-something in the morning and i hadn't slept for the past 36 hours. i was exhausted and still in so much pain. i also remember feeling like i wasn't even inside my own body, rather watching myself and my little family from the ceiling. but i remember that moment so clearly when it was finally just the three of us alone. my husband josh leaned over me as i held and fed our new sleeping baby and he began to cry. we hugged and cried together for a long time as we stared at this new little human being in awe. we offered a prayer of gratitude together to our heavenly father for entrusting us with something so special, so healthy and beautiful, so pure and perfect. it was somewhere during those first few moments as a mother, looking at my husband now as a father, that my faith in God grew. my purpose in life now seemed so clear and this overwhelming new love and responsibility kicked in that i didn't know i had for my new baby girl.
