Well, here he is. My little man.
August David Nelson was born on 3.8.11 at 5:30 in the morning.
During my difficult pregnancy everyone kept telling me, "It will be worth it." I never knew what to think or feel about those comments. I was just trying to get through the pregnancy that I wasn't really focused on having a baby. There is not a really "nice" way to describe my pregnancy.... I tell people that I was really "sick" and they look at me confused. Me saying I was "sick" is a nice way of saying, " I barfed my brains out for 9 long months" -there you have it in case you were wondering :) Anyways, in the midst of dealing with my "sickness" I didn't know how to respond to, "It will be worth it... you'll see."
So. He's 7 weeks old tomorrow. I'm barely sleeping. Recovering from the pregnancy and delivery. My days are spent cleaning up tons of spit up, changing diapers, and trying to figure out why he screams for hours in the evenings...... and guess what?! IT WAS AND IS WORTH IT.
This little guy has stolen my heart and put it in his back pocket. My husband and I are so in love. Being around this new little life puts my own life in perspective.
You were worth it.... You are so loved and so special. I love you to the moon and back.
Love, Your Mama
