Connor's Birth Story Part Two

After Johnny left the operating room with the baby I was still laying on the table while they sewed me back up and all the nurses said congratulations to me. I was so full of excitement and was looking forward to holding my little man for the first time very soon.

Johnny stayed with Connor while he got weighed and measured and my parents got to see him for the first time!

They transferred me to a rolling bed and brought me into the recovery room where I had to stay for a while so they could monitor me and make sure that I was doing well. While I was there Johnny brought Connor in and I got to hold him for the very first time. It was such an amazing feeling and it finally all made sense and I really felt like he was mine.

It was such a beautiful moment of our little family being together for the first time. We took lots of pictures and enjoyed our new little miracle.

Next I had to be brought to my hospital room and Connor went for a blood test while I was wheeled upstairs. I waited with some family until Connor and Johnny came back and then I held my boy again.

We only spent two days at the hospital because I made a pretty quick recovery and Connor was doing great. Even though I was in pain during the stay I enjoyed those first two days his life so much. They were so special. We had lots of visitors but also had lots of alone time as the three of us, which is so amazing in itself.

We love this little guy so much!

  1. nothing makes me tear up more than seeing the look of over whelming love and happiness on a new dad's face :) and mommy too, of course ;)

  2. The photos are beautiful! They truly capture the moments! I can't believe how they keep you waiting after the c-section. After I delivered Logan he wasn't breathing so they never put him on my chest. He was immediately rushed to medical team. I didn't get to hold him for 10 minutes - which seemed like forever! I can't imagine your anticipation! I hope your recovery has been easy!

  3. Thanks! Ya I really wish I could have had more time with him right after. :( I'm doing great. Hope you are too! :)
