sharing this prenancy journey with Heather has been something that i will cherish the rest of my life. the memories that we have shared have created this bond between us that i can't describe. so meeting the little one that was in her belly this whole time was such an awesome moment.
i was working nights the whole weekend that she was in the hospital so i didn't get to be with her as much as i wanted to, but the moments that i did get couldn't have been sweeter.
i was driving to work when she was in labor. from Christian's last text, i knew she was probably pushing. not the best time to visit :) but something in me said to just stop by the hospital and at least say hi to all the family that was waiting in the waiting room. after hanging out with them for about 30 mins, i was about ready to leave to get to work. just then, the lullabye chimes sounded overhead (which means a baby is born) and out jumps Christian from the hallway! he announced that it was a boy! and that his name was Henry James and that everyone was happy and healthy.
it was the sweetest moment. i am so glad that i was able to be there!
the next day before work, Aaron and I went in to meet Henry.
welcome to the sweetest little baby boy!
over the last couple weeks it has been such a joy to get to know this new little person. he is so sweet and snuggly and has such a personality. i can't wait to see him grow... but i don't want him to get any bigger!
here are a few pictures from the night he came home from the hospital
|Henry and his new little friend in my belly!|
i'm so excited for all of the years to come with these two boys. there will be many more pictures of them together! :)
congrats again Heather and Christian! you are already such wonderful parents and Henry is so blessed to have you!
