I am so happy to announce the birth of our son, a healthy and happy new life. He was born a week earlier than anticipated and had to spend a few days getting treated for jaundice, but he is alive and healthy, a two-week old baby that I get to hold and I am so grateful.
started repeating itself when I was 37 weeks pregnant, his kicks were
not as strong and heart rate not as fast, same as it happened with
Amelia. This time, because of Amelia, we had a choice of taking a
different course of action than we did with her, so he was born into
this world screaming.
Thank you my sweet girl. I am so sorry...
protect his privacy for the future (see, he has one...) I decided not
to share his name on this blog, so let's just call him Mr. Wiggles. He
really lived up to his name actually, at two weeks he holds his head,
pushes up and is trying to roll onto his stomach already. He must have
been hitting the gym in the womb every day ;)
We love him so much. It's a different kind of love, full of joy and
hope. I feel so much sadness for Amelia, it's a part of the overwhelming
love I feel for her. My love for my son is a much calmer kind of love, I
really enjoy it. It's so magical when you love someone who you can physically hold,
kiss, hug, instead of loving the twinkle of a star, the flaps of a
little bird's wings, the brush of cool air on your cheek.
And he looks just like her.
