Your first photo...I feel exactly the same way every day about my own children. How wonderful that you were able to capture that in a photograph. And honestly, there is absolutely nothing like skin-to-skin. May we always hold our children close to our hearts! You are beautiful and so is she!

You are beautiful. What a beautiful image. Congratulations to you and your family on this new addition. She is perfect. I'm anxious to hear about the delivery. Did you opt not to use epidural. I've been playing with the idea if I ever get the priveledge of pregnancy. Hope you're doing well.

Mama Janet said...

Yea! You are a great Mom and even willing to sacrifice your own pleasures as you brought her into the world. Talk about the ultimate delay of gratification even not knowing her sex until birth. It was all worth it!
