I was happy to receive this picture from my sister this week – she welcomed her first baby 2 weeks early and still over 8lbs. It brought back a flood of emotions as I mentally went through the birth of each of my own kids. When I talked to her on the phone, the first thing she said was, “Why doesn’t anyone tell you how awfully painful it really is??” I chuckled, I think those same thoughts ran through my head on our first child. I reminded her – everyone tells you, you just have no way of comprehending it. It is painful, but the reward is out of this world.
It’s fun to see people you love experience such joy and tenderness. Welcome to the world baby Nixon. Be ready for our snuggles in June!
