I'm in Love

I want to describe what I'm feeling...what I went through. It was a miracle. Delivering my son was the most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed and been a part of. My comprehension of this experience, and my emotions about my baby have come slowly - piece by piece, but I am overwhelmed at the amount of love I feel for this little person.

The time we had in the hospital was a dream. I was so sad to un-wrap the old and worn receiving blanket they had him in and pack him up to go. I just wanted to stay there forever with my perfect and new little baby. But, I'm really happy to be home with him, and snuggle in my own bed.

Every minute I have with him is the most fun I have ever had, and today I had the house all to myself with him, so I took some pictures. I know there are a lot of them, but narrowing it down anymore than this is an impossibility.

He smiles a lot. I know they say he's not really smiling, but I don't believe it.





Words don't describe. I'm completely obsessed, and so is Shane. We are a mess over this kid.

Oh, Lauren! He is so unbelievably cute!
I'm so glad you are making such a good transition and that you adore your new baby so much. Believe it or not, it doesn't happen for everyone.
Dan and I were the same way with Hannah- completely awe struck and utterly in love (I still get emotional just thinking about it). Words truly can't describe...

Congratulations again!
Now you know! It makes me happy for you :)

Oh my goodness you guys he is PERFECT in every way. Seriously, what a good looking little baby. He is so so cute! I am so so happy for you guys- that post was so sweet. I loved reading and knowing about your experience- it gets me so excited to meet my own.

Can I come by and bring you anything? I don't know the rules with this kind of stuff, but I'd love to see you and meet the little guy.

He is the most adorable baby I've ever seen. Wow. And I just can't get over the fact that I have a friend who is a MOM (although, I knew it was just a matter of time)!!!! I know you're going to be an incredible mom. I miss you lots and wish I could be there! Shane, give Lauren a big hug and kiss from me. And kiss that little beautiful boy for me too! xoxoxo
