All day I have been thinking, “I wonder if Kate will have enough energy to put some pictures up tonight?” Then I thought, “wait a minute! I have a blog too!” I know its been a while since you have heard from me, but that should explain the life of a dad and husband to a pregnant wife. I’ve been busy just trying to survive.
Brutal I tell you. I’m so glad that’s over!
But since I have this little space of my own, and I’m just so darn excited to show her to you, I figured I could give you a few highlights of the last few days/hours/minutes cause I know you just can’t stand it. I don’t blame you either, Gracie girl is C.U.T.E. Now I won’t go into too much detail because I know Kate will want to give you the play by play. But here are some highlights.
This is Gracie and I right when she came out at 6:25pm. I think I look weird in this picture, but I guess its that new daddy look.
That is the look Bean Man had when he first got a look at his little sister. I think he was more nervous about me wearing plastic scrubs then he was about Gracie.
Mom and Gracie getting to know each other while we waited for Kate to be able to move her legs again. It took a long time for that epidural to wear off. It also took a long time for my fingers to recover from the epidural incident. Ouch.
Kate looking so happy to not be pregnant anymore. You can’t see me in this picture, but I was doing a jig as well. I’m so proud of her for making it thru 38 weeks without actually killing me. Love you Gracie’s Mom! By the way you look amazing in this picture, it must be that new mommy look! 🙂
This is when Bean Man really got to meet Gracie. He was so curious, a little nervous, and very gentle.
This is a perfect little moment captured by yours truly. Bean Man was leaving that first night and said “Bye Bye Momma, Bye Bye Baby” It was the sweetest thing I have ever heard.
Sweet little Gracie.
See Bean Man, Gracie has little fingers too!
I’m going to end there… just to keep the suspense. I will say before I go that the second time around is great so far. It was such a wonderful surprise on Friday to get that phone call saying, “sweetie we have to go to the hospital”. I think I have been smiling ever since, except for those few minutes where I thought I was going to lose my fingers. Having a second baby is so fun! You know what to expect, so it feels like a walk in the park! When Bean came we were scared, like any new parents. But with Gracie I know what’s coming. I know how much joy and love came into our lives with Bean Man, and I can’t wait for that to grow even more now that we have a Gracie girl too.
…But two is enough. Haha. Stay tuned.
