Oh the ending…. That is what I want to share with everyone. The moment that I wish I could relive over and over, when they placed that amazing little baby on my chest. I wish that I could describe the feeling. I suppose other mothers know. They must, because when they were trying to tell me what it would be like beforehand they would stop talking and just say, “you will know when you experience it”. So true.I never thought I would want a camera in the room when I was having a baby. I never thought I would want to see pictures of my exhausted self right after the fact. I am just so thankful that my mother knew better. The pictures she captured are the most memorable pictures I have. It is the closest thing I can get to reliving that moment when I first saw my baby… and when he first saw me.
Levi was alert from the moment he came out…. They placed him on my chest and he just stared at me for a full twenty minutes. He did not cry, he just looked at me as if recognizing my heartbeat and my voice. He knew I was his mommy and we looked at each other and bonded. Such a special moment.
