My heart has never been more full. I will do a whole post all about our delivery, Cooper’s first few days, & our hospital stay, but I want to wait and write it when we aren’t so sleepy. Ha! First, I just want to thank everyone for all the prayers and well wishes. We are so SO blessed. This baby has changed our lives in the best possible way and I still cannot believe I get to be his Mom. It’s hands down the best thing I will ever do. We are all doing great, just trying to figure out postpartum and life with a newborn. <3
Here I am last Wednesday all prepped for our C-section! I was nervous.
Our guy came into the world at 12:25pm on 2/16/22 weighing 7 pounds 10 ounces, 21 inches long. He. Is. Perfect.
Our first photo as a family of three. I will cry as I type this, but I don’t know how I got so blessed to have Jake as my husband and partner through all of this. He has been my rock and taken care of every single thing. I have yet to change a diaper. I’m not joking. He lets me rest and recover and is just the absolute best dad.
Everything went really smoothly and before I knew it, I was in the recovery room nursing Cooper. I don’t think I stopped smiling.
After about two hours, we were taken to our room, which was so nice. I laid in bed and cuddled our sweet baby. He is beautiful.
Fast forward to Friday – we headed home! I was nervous leaving the hospital 48 hours after my C-section, but once we got home, I was SO thankful. I was (and still am) healing really well and I feel good most of the time. Plus, this kid is all mine – I could stare at him all day.
Absolute perfection. Cooper is so cuddly. He sleeps best in our arms and is always making the sweetest faces at us. We are obsessed.
So far, postpartum is going pretty well. I’m still sore, but healing really well. I’m living in sweats, nursing tanks, and mesh underwear. Cooper is amazing at nursing, so we are figuring out that journey as well. Here’s our first day home from the hospital. I am still really swollen, but I’m improving every day. I feel extra blessed to be healing as quickly as I am. I cry a lot, but everyone tells me they did too for the first two weeks. They’re mostly happy tears, sometimes from anxiety.
Jake is the absolute best dad. I knew he would be, but man, he makes me love him more every single day.
Our hearts have never been more full!
We have our first pediatrician appointment today, so I’m excited to see how Cooper has grown.
Happy Monday, friends!
