Settling in to Motherhood

Yes we are adjusting to having a new little screaming, spitting, pooping angel in our formerly quite home. This morning I took the time to give some advice to a soon to be mother and former coworker. This is the best way I can describe my feelings right now... Here is my advice to her and all pregnant mothers to be...
Cherish this time right now because believe it or not, you will miss that belly, you will miss that movement deep inside your tummy, you will yearn for that time when your baby was all yours inside you and you didn't have to share him and you could quietly take him wherever you went without any fuss and you could sleep soundly...well as soundly as you can 8 months (or more) pregnant...but still more sound than with a fussy new born! It is so true, it all changes. Your world is upside down. Night is day and day is crazy! The time flys by and you wonder what the hell you did all day! You are tired, sore, tender and emotional but you don't mind so much. It is very real. A lot of new mothers will gush over how you have this instant love and bond with this new human being...bla, bla, bla...but the truth is that I didn't have an overwhelming love and bond with him. I mean I loved him from the beginning, but I felt more of a huge responsibility and need to nurture. I still sort of feel that way. It is kinda of weird and hard to explain. It's a bizarre feeling that nobody really told me about and it sort of surprised me. Ok, I'm done gushing!

So ya want more pictures? Well here is a link were you can see more of little Zane. Enjoy.

He's Here!

Well he made it safe and sound! After a very long and hard labor and delivery filled with complications, our little bundle of joy finally came into this world Friday morning, September 1st at 12:24. He weighed 6 lb 6 oz and was absolutely perfect. We can't even tell you the joy we feel right now. The last few days have been a blur and we are just loving every second with him. I will post more pics later and tell you all about my long and difficult journey through my natural child birth. Yes. I said natural child birth! I'll post again soon. Promise!
