At 9:30am on Wednesday, July 8th, we found ourselves at the hospital about to have our 2nd baby girl. Being that this was a planned c-section, I was quite comfortable and at ease knowing what to expect. (We had an emergency c-section with Natalie). Because Nathan is in Med school, our doctor allowed him to dress in scrubs, watch the entire procedure, take plenty of GROSS pictures of the surgery, and participate a lot more than he was allowed to with Natalie.
I am sorry that I will not be posting any of the pictures from the actual c-section, but take my word for it - there are a lot of organs showing, some muscle exposed, lots of tools, lots of nurses, the doctor, Nathan, and of course . . . a lot of blood!
But, regardless of how gross and somewhat nauseating the pictures are, we were BLESSED with a healthy, strong, active, and adorable little girl.
Here's my little family . . .
Nathan is such a proud father - and a very good one at that! I am constantly amazed at how much he does for our family, always striving to take care of us, make us laugh, and spend extra time with us even though he is so busy with school. Here, you can obviously see that he is admiring his new baby girl, who looks an awful lot like her daddy!
Natalie is such a good Big Sis! She loves her baby Maejae and always tells me when I need to feed the baby, hold her, or change her diaper. She is honestly a little mommy in training! It has been so much fun to see my girls together, and they bring so much joy into my life every day.
