For those of you who are already parents, you'll understand perfectly when I say I haven't had much time to write since the actual induction Sunday morning.
It's was 23 hours and 44 minutes from the time we arrived at the hospital to Holden's debut...
I'm excited to share the amazing spiritual and transcendent experience that labor and delivery was for all of us -- mom, baby and Daddy. But for now, it suffices to say that nothing really worked the way we were expecting; and it was all entirely perfect.
Holden has joined us... made our family complete to this point; and he is a miracle in more than one way.
He was born Sunday evening at 6:46 pm, 7 pounds 10 ounces, 21.5 inches of perfection...
Thank you to those of you who have already left well wishes and congratulations via text, email, phone, facebook, this blog, etc. We appreciate it. (and my apologies for not getting back to you,... we've been a bit preoccupied. ;)
We plan on returning from the hospital on Thursday and I hope to share our amazing birthing story with you all sometime after... but for now, it's time to nurse again and I can hardly stand to be on the other side of the room from him.
My blessing, my miracle, my precious baby Holden.
