Are you serious?! There is nothing as conceptually outlandish yet so unexplainably glorious and perfect as childbirth!! That came from where?? We are LOVING life. What a fantastic experience its been as we bond with Elizabeth here at the hospital, and I think that my 2 days sleeping on the most uncomfortable pull out chair ever will certainly have me supremely thankful for any moments of sleep I get during the next few weeks on a real bed. As we imagine all the things that could have possibly gone wrong, its seems incomprehensible that things have gone so smoothly.
This evening, as I sat in cafeteria with my eyes drooping shut with fatigue waiting for my cheeseburger, I couldn't wipe a smile off my face. With the woman I love more than my life we have created a perfect, pure and beautiful being to teach and cherish and protect and love. A week ago parenthood seemed like such an unfathomable proposition, but now it feels so right. We have been greatly blessed, and I feel so thankful... My heart is full. Thank you for sharing these moments with us.
