The First Time, Ever I Saw Your Face

March 18, 2011

After getting very little sleep the previous night, we headed to the hospital, leaving the house around 4:45 in the morning to be at St. Luke's Hospital by 5:30. I was filled with excitement, anxiety with a twinge of sadness having to be away from my other babies for several days.

After being checked into the hospital and finding out the my anaesthetist was the lady who had preformed my first one, I was filled with relief knowing what a great job she had done when Sissyboo was born. Sure enough, no pain with this epidural!

At 7:46 this little angel was held over the curtain and presented to me:

I was full of joy! She was so tiny and had these tiny little features. Even though she weighed in at a hefty 8 pounds, 3 ounces.

I often think about the first time I ever saw my children. What my first thoughts were, what was going on in my head when I first layed eyes on them. How was I feeling at the time of their births.

With Sissyboo it was love at first sight. I had waited my whole life to see her and my first thought was so that I was so blessed and full of joy. I often regret not giving her the middle name of Joy because she has filled my life so full of it.

With Double D, I remember my first thought upon seeing his little face was, I am so in love with him and then thinking, oh my word, he looks just like his Grandpa Larry!

With Missymoo my first thoughts were she was perfect and tiny. Then I basically passed out because they gave me Benedryl because I have allergic reactions to the anesthesia.

We are home relaxing now, and finding our way back to our daily routine. I am looking forward to getting back to blogging once again.

Thank you friends and family for all your thoughts and prayers.
