Welcoming Muffin #6...
I was reminded of this time in my life by reading Kristen's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You. Though my trauma came from the fact that this lil' boy was going to leave for college someday. (Thank you raging hormones!)
At the very minute this picture was taken I was in a state of euphoria. We just had a son. He was healthy & content. Even nursed like a champ! (Must be a guy thing!?) Life was goooood.
After 5 girls, we called it quits. But God's plans were different. Thankfully. We found out at 20 weeks that we were having a boy & he was due Christmas day! What a gift. Everyone around us eagerly anticipated the arrival of the Buller Boy! I had an amazing shower, thanks to The Maid. It truly made me feel special & left me speechless.
Though it was not my first child, I experienced a lot of 'firsts'. First time I went into labor without being induced. First time I labored at home with a doula. (Thanks Shannon!) First time I was rushed to the hospital by my husband driving approximately 100 mph! The first time I got to triage and all the nurses scrambled to help me into a room, instead of looking at me as though they already new it was false labor! First time I experienced the 'ring of fire'....OUCH! The first time I was blessed with a son.
And most importantly, the first time that I truly felt God's Grace lavished upon me.
