I’m sure you all have been wondering where I’ve been the last few days. At least I like to think that you might have noticed…
I’ve actually been on vacation the last few days and while I had some posts prepped, my plans got a little derailed on Sunday.
Because I was a little busy.
Assisting in the arrival of this little guy.
My cousin had planned on a natural birth and had asked me to be there to help her through the process. Since neither of us had any first hand experience with natural labor, we didn’t know quite what to expect. And no matter how much research you do, nothing can quite prepare you for the real thing.
And let me tell you. After 36 hours of contractions and zero sleep you are definitely ready to meet that little baby. Momma was absolutely amazing. She had a tough labor, but managed to push through the pain and deliver Henry without an epidural. I couldn’t be more proud of her and his incredible papa.
And this guy?
He’s pretty amazing, too.
