You Were Right...

You're right. You're all right. Every one of you. I thought that there was a massive conspiracy to get women pregnant because misery loves company. I thought the 'it's different when it's your own kid' was a fallacy. I thought that newborns really didn't do much for me, and I wish that kids came out 2 years old.

I was wrong. So very very wrong.

Yesterday we welcomed a new baby into our lives, and it changed everything. I now believe in love at first sight. She is adorable, and such a good baby. Wow. It's completely undescribable, wow.

However, as to all the horror stories about labor- I was prepared for the worst and I was worried about nothing. The easiest part of my entire pregnancy was labor-thanks to the skilled hands at St.Mark's hospital. Seriously, no pain- none, such a fabulous staff and this means a lot coming from a total wuss.

Here's the picture of the beautiful little girl. This blog will not turn into a 'mom blog' (not that there's anything wrong with that)- but mostly I won't be posting any details about this adorable child because there are too many weirdos out there.

Congratulations! I am so glad she is here. Isn't falling in love just simply amazing?

Enjoy your baby-moon.

JustRandi said...

She. Is. SO. Beautiful!

And I'm with you 100%! I'd rather be in labor any day than be pregnant. Oh, being pregnant is hard.
Give that sweet baby some kisses on the back of her neck, which is my favorite kissing place on a baby!!

adam said...

So cool. Honestly it took me a few days to adjust after our baby arrived, so it looks like you're doing great!

Congrats! well not sure if the no pain was due to drugs or just a great natural birth like my friend( says that she feels no pain during her labor) Im glad all is well either way!
welcome to motherhood!

When you are pregnant, you are just "pregnant." But when you have that baby, suddenly you are the only woman in the world who has ever had a baby. Yours is the prettiest, sweetest, most amazing baby in the whole wide world.

Congratulations - you're a "mommy" !

The Bell Fam said...

WAHOO!!! I am so happy that she if finally here. Those last few days are brutal! I hope you are feeling well and feeling the soothing power of those frozen gloves...gotta love it. Relish these moments. Before you know it she will hit the terrible twos...that actually carry on to threes.

love ya!

joanna said...

Congratulations! What a beautiful little girl, and a sassy little thing, too.

I feel really bad for giving you my labor horror story. (I'm sure you don't remember it on your comments section.) But then I am very relieved you didn't have any trouble in your labor (and a little jealous.) People told me my horror story was very rare. Lucky me! I am still traumatized. I need therapy.

Sorry, enough about me. CONGRATULATIONS again. You will be a wonderful mom. I can tell because you're smart. Smart moms are the best. I had one myself.

Cute kid!

Cameron said...

Hurray! Congratulations!

Kaylene Jackson said...

Silvs said...

I'm a little late to jump on this train, but congratulations! So glad to hear it wasn't the awful experience you were afraid it was going to be. She's adorable. High-fives all around.

crazy4danes said...

Congrats!!! Sounds like you had a great anesthesiologist! :D And it is totally different when it's your own, nobody knows that better than my husband who didn't even like being in the same room as a baby, let alone have one! LOL ;P I'm so happy for you!

Della Hill said...

Woo Hoo!
Congratulations.

Linda said...

She is a beautiful.

Kristen said...

Congratulations! She is very precious! I can't believe you are so on top of things as to get a bow plastered to her head when she is only hours old. Wow!

Salt H2O said...

Thanks for all of the kind words and congratulations! I love my blog friends.

Daisy Paige said...

So sweet! Babies are the best. Everyone says it and I'll give a whole-hearted echo...

Enjoy every moment because the time goes by much too quickly.

Hi Kory, so glad to read baby is here and you're both doing well. I can completely relate to your posts. Glad to hear you had an easy labor. Send me all the baby stats or an announcement if you get the chance. She's beautiful. Noel
