The Arrival of Zane

Hey there!! Long time, no post!  I have been rather busy trying to settle in to a new life and new routine since the arrival of our baby boy!  The next couple posts will give you a glimpse into the past few weeks and my new role as "mommy"

Let me start from day one. I went in the night before to be induced the next day, no medical reason, we were just ready and my doctor believed Zane was too!  The next morning we got the process started around 8:30am, at first I was progressing slowly and my doctor and nurses told me to get rest that this was probably going to last all night.  Then suddenly it started going really fast!! Within 1 hour I was only halfway there to being complete!  It didn't take long at all for Zane to make his appearance and at 6:42pm he was here and weighing in at 6 pounds 11 ounces!!

When I first heard his cry, I cried tears of absolute joy!!!!  May 23, 2011 was THE happiest day of my life (other than my wedding day)!

Giving birth to our son was the most wonderful thing I have ever experienced!! I would do it over and over and over again!!

Our very first moments together were precious!! I will cherish the memories and the rush of feelings I felt forever!!!  As soon as he was laid in my arms he fixed his eyes on mine and did not look away.  We sat there gazing into eachothers eyes and taking eachother in for a good while.  The first thing I noticed is that he has my eyes and dimples.  Most of the rest of him is my husband!  He is the most beautiful baby I have ever laid eyes on!!!  I cannot believe he's mine and every time I look at him I am amazed and know I am looking at a miracle!!
Welcome to the world baby boy!  We love you so very much!!!!
