I woke up completely on the right side of the bed today! I was in much less pain than the day before & was so happy I was able to move enough to take a shower. In the afternoon, Levi was able to come to my room!!!!! I was so very happy. He had to stay on a biliblanket for his jaundice, but at least he was close & I could hold him as much as I wanted. It was also the big day Kendall & Levi met.
There are moments in your lifetime that touch your heart the most & that seem to go by too quick. My wedding & births of my children are certainly included in this list. But the first time looking at our little family of four, knowing this is it- this is all of us, forever, will be unforgettable. Watching Kendall meet her little brother & seeing the smile on her face melted my heart. I felt both a sense of completion & a bit of sadness knowing that we won’t ever add another child into our lives. But no matter how sad I feel, the feeling of knowing how blessed we truly are for these two beautiful babies trumps it all. I don’t want these moments to end, because they have been the happiest moments in my life.
Daddy is staying the night with Levi & I. It’s pretty crazy going through the newborn phase again when it seems like it was just yesterday with Kendall!
