There is soooo much to say and write about, but we wanted to post just a few pictures right away for those of you who are far, far away.
I am hoping to write about and post his birthing story very soon, but for those of you who haven’t heard any details, at the very last minute it became necessary to deliver Elliott with an Emergency C-Section. Which, to say the least, was a very difficult word to hear when everything had been right on track and going smoothly all day. Like I said, the story will come later, but for now, all that matters is that we have our baby!!! So here are a few pictures of our beautiful, precious, healthy baby boy!!!!
Right after Elliott was delivered:
|Just minutes old!|
|10 day overdue wrinkly feet 🙂|
|Me, finally getting to hold my baby for the first time|
|First family photo…Um, I’m exhausted 🙂|
My parents and Brian’s family waited all day in the hospital, bless their hearts. By the time I got to see Elliott after surgery, feed him for the first time and take a minute to breathe, it was already 8pm. But we were able to get all of our family in to meet him before visiting hours were over!
We were all utterly exhausted by the end of the day…it has been a crazy, long, hard, emotional week.
Here is a picture from today, after we’ve all had either sponge baths or showers :). A tiny bit more rested, and a lot more in love with our baby boy.
|The Moberg 3!|
It is standard to stay in the hospital 2 nights when you’ve had a C-Section. I seem to be recovering well so if all goes according to plan, we will get to be discharged tomorrow. It’s been great to be in the hospital (thank God for drugs!!!!) but we are so excited to go home with our baby Elliott!!!
Thank you to everyone who was praying for us! We praise God for our healthy baby boy!!!
Many, many congratulations on your perfect Baby Elliot. I can't wait to read your birth story and I'm SO GLAD YOU'RE NOT PREGNANT ANYMORE!!!
Well done and welcome Baby Elliot.
And, see? You really weren't going to be pregnant forever….
There are not enough exclamation points in the world for how excited I am about my beautiful nephew. Elliott has the best Mommy and Daddy in the world over. Love you so much!!!
OH MY GOODNESS!! What a handsome little guy! It is so fun to see you three together, can't wait to meet Elliott in person someday soon! Love Mrs. Bee
Susanne – I came across this blog by waay of Melanie's, so I thought I'd stop in and say: CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your wee man is adorable, and very handsome. Certainly Daddy's boy, though I see some of you, too. As someone whose homebirth turned into an emergency Cesarean, I think I can sympathise with what you've been through, and it's quite a bit to process… but from this point on I can tell you that you think of it very rarely, if ever – because you're far too busy loving your little man. 🙂
