One of my very good friends is about to deliver baby girl #2 in a couple days and I can't help but remember those days leading up to the birth of my little angels! It truly is a miracle when you think about it. I remember how "unreal" it seemed the entire 41 weeks with Adrianna (lovely)and then being pregnant with Christopher, well that pregnancy totally flew since I of course had a 3 year old I was constantly after and worked part time waiting on tables till the end. I'm remembering two days before I got induced with Christopher I was walking around Walmart, very swollen feet and all, with my GIANT aching belly making sure I wasn't forgetting something. I walked aimlessly (well I should say "waddled aimlessly"), basically to probably keep busy and to find an "It's a boy" newborn cap. I couldn't find one ANYWHERE and it was one of those silly little things I forgot but COMPLETELY NEEDED,lol!

Here are some pics of that first day with both of them. My Cesarean experience was an emergency and a total nightmare after 16hours of hard labor with Adrianna. But my Cesarean with Christopher was literally a dream, the entire day couldn't have been more perfect or amazing! Something very strange about feeling tugging but no pain and seeing a baby being lifted over a sheet crying, gosh I get the chills just thinking about it . . . That is a moment I will remember the rest of my life! PURE JOY!


ADRIANNA BEFORE I EVEN SAW HERE (I was under General Anesth.and didn't experience/remember any of those first 2 hours post c-section)

ADRIANNA RIGHT AFTER HER BATH (still hadn't seen her yet, only daddy had the privelige of being by her side the entire time, you know he didn't leave her for a second!)


MY WONDERFUL DR. PULLING CHRISTOPHER OUT, WHICH BY THE WAY WAS QUITE AMAZING THE SECOND TIME AROUND SINCE I WAS AWAKE FOR THIS CSECTION!


CHRISTOPHER RIGHT AFTER THEY TOOK HIM OUT AND WIPED HIM OFF
