This sweet boy came into this world on August 2, 2015 at 10:10 a.m. — just two days before my due date. Calvin has stolen our hearts and we still can’t believe he’s here!
I’m working on writing up some form of a birth story to share, but in the meantime, I can say that I’ve never worked so hard in my life as I did during my 32+ hour labor and delivery.
Life with a newborn is exhausting and if I’m being honest, the adjustment hasn’t always felt easy. Breastfeeding has been equal parts the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done, but also one of the hardest and sometimes lonely. But it’s so worth it and I feel lucky that things are going so well so far.
Thanks for all of the well wishes and congratulatory notes! More coming soon!
