10 Days Old

My Son Edward WillaimMy son Edward William was born January 20th at 4:04 AM. He weighed 9 pounds 6 ounces and was 22 1/4 in length. The story of his birth is dramatic and I’m still processing the event. Simply put, it was dreadful. Perhaps at some point I will share the whole story. Luckily time heals and as it turns out, so does holding a newborn baby. His sweet temperament and calm demeanor has made these first days incredibly special. I took these photos when Edward was 10 days old. In the time that has passed he already seems to have changed so much.

    Hi Katie, I have enjoyed reading your blog(s) for years – congratulations on your son’s birth! He is so handsome. I work in obstetrics as a neonatal nurse. I am present at all deliveries in the operating room or labor room to care for babies immediately following delivery. I know all too well how circumstances surrounding a delivery can turn on a dime. A baby with his stats can make a labor and delivery rough on a first time mother! I’m so sorry your experience was traumatic. I’m glad the outcome was a healthy baby and healthy mom. I can’t imagine the first days afterward were easy for you. Here’s to continued healing of your mind and body over the coming weeks.
