I don’t remember much detail immediately following Elijah’s birth because of all the pain meds I was on. I do remember taking our first family photo in the OR, and trying to nurse him later in my hospital room. I think I might have waved at my brother-in-law when he came to see Elijah, but for the most part I just slept. I had a faint thought that I might not remember what Elijah looked like in the morning, but I trusted Mike would.
Elijah’s Birth Story
I woke up January 7th very excited to enjoy my new son. He was perfect in every way I could imagine . . . and he hasn’t changed a bit.
