Our Jonathan

Oh my, csections are HORRIBLE. That was my hardest one yet. I have no idea why I have such a hard time, especially considering that I've done this twice before. But after several fainting bouts (apparently because I'm a runner, my blood pressure and pulse are super low which at first freaked out the nurses. I had a pulse of 38 at one point and my avg blood pressure has been 80s over 50s, and made me more prone to fainting), I finally was walking this evening.

Happy to be on the other end of intense pain and fainting, I really have no words at this point to describe the experience. A birth story post might come later. My experience with Valium was pretty humorous.

I also have inadequate words to describe baby Jonathan. I am so in love with him. I forgot how sweet newborns are. The sound of his little, fast breaths, the touch of his tiny, soft hands, and the smell of his beautifully round head. Everything is perfect and wonderful and I'm so insanely blessed.


  1. I've lurked (and liked!) your blog for some time, but could not resist commenting on this post. What a beautiful baby! He is just perfect. And what a beautiful family! Congratulations!
