Relaxing Doesn't Make Babies

A little pic

May 22, 2010 — 1:37 pm

Dropping off a pic! Though in our opinion pics don’t really capture her true cuteness.

I’d drop off more than one, but pretty much they all look the same. She sleeps non-stop and blows bubbles. LOL

At what point does this feel real?? Though I woke up from a nap and felt so disoriented and all where’s my belly?! Then I heard her squeak.

Also. Seeing my husband with his daughter? Quite possibly the best feeling ever. He is utterly smitten.

    Hug her, she is yours. It feels so new right now and you went through a lot; the feelings will come soon.
    It has been you Den and Devin’s memory for so long and now there is this new little girl and you do not know her yet.

    Natalie I’ve been following you since you started talking about your journey over on FF and then LP. I felt gutted about what had happened to you and Den, it was surreal, and I was in awe of your strength and courage. I followed your story, lurking and sending thoughts to the universe to let you catch a break. I think I checked your site hourly when you said things were moving along, and now here she is. I’m am so happy for you. I hope you enjoy all the wonderful moments that were so unfairly taken from you. You make an amazing pregnant lady and you are an awesome mom.

    Congratulations to you and Den

    For me, it took a few weeks to feel real. I was at BFing group at the hospital, and I looked at all the other babies with their mommies and thought “those are other people’s babies. This one is MY baby.”
