Before you were born I thought I knew what love was. week 36x6 but after nearly 31 hours of labour and laying eyes on you for the first time I realized this thing called love was completely different thanI had ever experienced or ever knew was possible.  A love completely unmeasured and at times overwhelming.  That night  I should have been exhausted, but I wasn’t, I should have rested, but I couldn’t, instead all my focus was on wanting to see you, be around you, adore you and simple just look at you and love you. You arrived at 9:55pm on August 16th  via what our obstratrician so affectionately called the ‘sun roof’ aka c-section.  As I was whisked away to recovery your amazing dad spent the first hour with you ‘skin to skin’  taking photo after adoring photo and even making a video so that I could feel apart of those first special moments together.  I will never forget being wheeled in and seeing the amazing bond you two had already developed dad & daughter Holding you for the first time,  our eyes meeting, I fell in love immediately.  I remember  just wanting to watch you all night and take in every little detail possible.  It was the most surreal night of my life. tl collage details Going into that night I was scared, nervous, excited and eager.  Things didn’t go exactly as planned and things at times kind of felt out of control but when I met you everything felt right in the world.  The only plan I should have had was that…meeting you. They say you will forget the pain, the long hours and everything that happens in labour, well I haven’t, and I am glad I haven’t as it brought me to you. I thank you baby girl for bearing with me as I learn the in’s and out’s of this crazy experience they call parenting. I love you sweet London
