Nate cut the cord, and we got myself moved back to my bed, where our little boy caught on to nursing quickly, and Nate and I got to sit and just soak in the birth of our child. It never ceases to amaze me the miracle of birth, and just how the whole process never grows old. Although I must admit, I was so glad it was over! It is one of the hardest things I have ever done, and probably will ever do. At least physically.
After a half hour or so of resting, my midwives ran an herbal bath for me and Landon, which we soaked in for a while. This is one of my favorite parts. The bath smells so good, and it is so healing. They use sea salt in it, which helps the healing process tremendously.
and here is one of Grandma with her first grandson,
This last week has been a lot of fun, and very tiring! I forgot how much I love my sleep. Being interrupted every two to three hours has taken some getting used to. But I also forgot how soft newborn skin is, how silky their hair is, and how sweet they smell after a bath. I know I will have some crazy days ahead, but we are just so thrilled that Landon is here and a part of our family. We love you Landon Ray, and look forward to all you will bring to our family.
