sorry it took so long to post! Blake arrived at 4:13 am on friday, july 31, 2009. :D he came out in only four pushes! not too bad. he was actually considered full term when i had him, since that day i was officially 37 weeks.
but omg, i love him so much! i can't even imagine life without him now. when they pulled him out it was like slow motion, they had him by his little legs and took him away when he was first born into the other room to examine him. he's so tiny, but so strong and so beautiful. he breaths just fine, and when i heard his little cries i started tearing up too. he screamed until they let me hold him, at that point i started talking to him and he was quiet, and just stared into my eyes. it was so precious, i don't think i'll ever forget such a beautiful moment. i think that had to be the happiest moment of my entire life. i get teary eyed just thinking about it. :)
i can't believe he's officially 2 weeks old! oh how time flies. oh he looks so much like me. :) it's precious. i got to take him home at four days old. they kept him a little longer because he had jaundice, but it's much better now. it just broke my heart to leave him though. :( so glad that's over with!
tuesday, august 11th, blake's umbilical cord stump fell off. he's an innie!!!
thursday, august 13th, i placed him on his stomach, and he rolled onto his complete side. probably could've rolled onto his back if he really wanted to, but he prefers his side. :D
i'm loving being a mommy even more than i thought i would. :D
