An Actual Birth Day!

Yesterday, the baby's umbilical cord finally fell off. I was sad because it meant that his first little stage of life was over. Yes, I am holding onto every single day with this little guy.

A few days ago, my sister came over with the pictures she had taken on the day Vance was born. I hadn't seen them yet and I love them. Thanks sistah for always making sure I have good pics. Please indulge me a little as we revisit the baby's actual birth day!

Here is Jason and his beautiful mama right before we went in to welcome Vance to the world.

This was the moment when Vance and I first met face to face. This was the first time I have ever had a nurse lay my baby next to me and it was one of the sweetest moments of my life.

I love this picture of my adorable husband looking at his newborn son, just minutes old.

I am grateful for these pictures because these are the moments I missed. I was in recovery. I saw this and marveled at how beautifully he came out. Look- he is sucking his thumb.

This is Vance's entourage who arrived early in the morning to be at his arrival.  Note- my wonderful sister is not pictured, but she is much appreciated as the behind the scenes photographer. My mom is also not pictured as she was standing by my side and the doctors finished up working on me.

And, of course, Ty had to have a hospital costume and daddy was happy to share. So, if you ask Ty what to wear to a hospital, this would be it!
