My labor & delivery were far from perfect, but it brought this little angel babe to us & he is absolutely perfect. My sister @___kaybaybay made us a video documenting the minute we walked into the hospital on Friday to the minute we walked out on Tuesday with our baby in tow. It’s a personal & intimate look into our lives & it was the sweetest gift!

You were a pea, then a lemon, then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read twelve books. I quit coffee. Could you tell I was scared? I talked to you, sang to you… I wasn’t ready. But then you were here. Ten fingers. Ten toes. 7 pounds. Love. BIG FAT LOVE!
