It's a boy.
Our little bundle was born July 26.
If you've clicked on this post to hear the story of how our hypnobirth went, keep clicking friends. Keep clicking. You will find no such story here. After months of preparing, practicing and praying for that smooth, natural birth, nothing went as planned. The only thing that happened on my birth plan was that a healthy baby was the result at the end. That's it.
There are certain events in your life that make you realize things you've never dreamed of.
For example, who knew I could fall into a dead, deep sleep so quickly with a giant ice pack between my legs? Who knew?
And who knew how big a mother's heart can grow? Just when I think it's near bursting with three toddling little ones in my life, I think, that's it. My heart is not capable of feeling any more love and beautiful emotion. If it does, it will surely break in a million pieces.
Then, another little one comes along. And my heart doesn't break, but grows and beats faster and stronger.
Stay tuned for how our near 24 hour adventure of laboring and delivering played out. I'm not trying to be cliff hangy, really. My upcoming posts will be indicative of my time and energy levels. Both short and sweet.
Thanks for all the well wishes and congrats I've received so far. Our family is blessed beyond measure.
PS - we named our little bear Spencer.
