2.7.2007 - The day you were born

Thursday, November 05, 2009

For our Day 2 prompt one of our tasks was to share a story about one of the most amazing days of our lives. I've chosen the day Joel was born (2nd July 2007)
So here goes...

I went into labour with Joel around 2:30 on a Monday morning. Your daddy and I were so excited. We tried to get some more sleep but we couldn't believe that this was happening. We had waited such a long time to meet you and soon you would be here. We got to the hospital around 9:00am and after 5 or so more hours (and no drugs) you were born. Our gorgeous little boy. They laid you on my chest and you had your eyes open. You were looking up at me. Big brown eyes and long eyelashes. And there it was. Love like I'd never felt before. You were ours. And we were (and still are) so blessed.
The next couple of hours were some of the best of my life. Just laying there. Snuggling with you. Watching it rain outside. Staying warm and safe together inside.
The 3 of us.
Can't believe that was almost 2 1/2 years ago. You are still the sweetest little thing. And we still love snuggles
Just the 3 of us.

Thanks for letting me share
Till next time

Oh, that made me all teary, Megs. Thanks for sharing.

I am really enjoying the class and the prompts. Wish I could do some of the scrapping too, but there isn't enough hours in the day right now!
