catching up

turns out when you have a newborn, time flies. i literally look at the clock for the first time, and it's 2pm. here are some pics to of the past month.

40 weeks and about to pop
40 weeks

i was scheduled to be induced at 7am, but my sweetie listened to her momma and started the labor on her own the night before.
16hr labor, 3.5 hours of pushing,lots of stitches, and she finally arrived.
turns out when you are completely numb, pushing doesn't come so easy. so they turned off my epidural, so i could pretty much feel everything by the time she finally came out. did i mention lots of stiches? i was convinced she wasn't coming out, so when she did, i couldn't quit blubbering with pure joy. most amazing moment of my life. mr dave who was nervous about passing out the whole 9 months, took it like a champ! cord cutting and all!
happy family

it's amazing what the human body is capable of. now that a few weeks have passed, it seems like a dream what went down in that delivery room.

p.s. i love being a mom
