I'm going to do this in pieces...


I had a revelation the other day: I'd started a play-by-play of Seth's birth day experience while we were still holed up in the hospital (
oh, yeah...we're home, by the way), and I just couldn't seem to get the words out right, or fast enough, or something....which is why it's still not posted.

Well, it dawned on me yesterday that I have not yet processed all of what transpired between noon on Thursday and 6 pm on Friday. And because I hadn't really even allowed the experience to sink in with me, I was in no shape to share it with you.

I've started to process everything (sorry for sounding so hokey...it really
was something I had to process, literally hour by hour). So, I'm going to be posting the story in "chapter" (which means it will require effort on your part if you don't want to read it backwards. ;)

So, that's the plan.....it'll make it easier to caption the pictures, too.

And just because, even though it has nothing to do with this post, here is a cute picture of Seth and (part of) Daddy late last night:

he's just so darn cute!! and yes, you do have to kinda process what happens. i'm looking forward to hearing all about it, regardless of how you go about it! :) i know i had wicked fast labors, and the 2nd time was insane, (but i had done it before) but yeah, the 1st time, i was in a whirlwind of what the heck was going on. it's actually not good to go wicked fast either the doc said. although, i was glad it was! lol i hope that you adjust quickly. i'm SO glad you're home in time for Christmas! enjoy your first Christmas with your cute little boy(s). :)

I love that picture! It'll really give people a perspective on his size, too. :) SO cute! Good luck processing. I've done it twice & I still think of things that didn't make a lot of sense that happened during l & d. So much commotion.

I'm glad you guys are home! Take as much time as you need to process the whole thing. It's an experience unlike any other and it's different for everyone. Post when you feel you have it all straight.
