A Star is Born!!!!

He is here!!!! FINALLY!!!! On Tuesday May 18th I went into the hospital for a 10am scheduled c-section and Noah Oliver Douglass was born at 11:06am!!!! I was anxious and scared as hell to get that spinal block (which did NOT feel good!!). But once I got it and we got to going I just wanted to see the new man in my life!!! And he was SO worth the LONG wait!!! He came out SCREAMING and pissed off that we took him out of his comfort zone!!! I wanted to get off the operating room table and soothe him so bad, but of course I couldn't!

Everything went smoothly, I got to recovery and was ready to see Noah!!! Of course he was up in the nursery meeting Daddy and Granna. My Mom was ending me pictures via text...yes I had my phone in By the time I got to the room it was almost 2pm!!!! But I was happy on I got there. Noah was beautiful he has this head full of black hair and the juiciest cheeks and lips!!! I was in love from first sight!!!

I can honestly say that I was concerned while I was pregnant. Concerned that I would not love Noah as much as I love Aiden. Aiden is my first born and I could not imagine loving two people as much as I love Aiden. Someone told me that as soon as I saw Noah that concern would go away and they were SO right.

We were in the hospital until Friday afternoon and Saturday we had lots of visitors. I over did it that day because I was HURTING for a coupe days after wards. I should NOT have been going up and down those stairs like I was, but people kept showing Learned my lesion.

Recovery has actually been a little better this time around. Maybe it is because I knew what to expect and knew what I should and should not do. So I have been keeping my butt in bed...well as much as I can take. My responsibility is Noah. Paul takes care of me and Aiden...and he has been doing pretty durn well!!! Hopefully I will get to escape out of the house soon just to do something simple like get a pedicure!!!

So below are some pictures from when we were in the hospital. Aiden stayed with Auntie Lauren and Uncle Travis the first 2 days and stayed with Granna the second 2 nights. He was in hog heaven and was not worried about coming home on Friday night. But he LOVES his little brother!!!! He wakes up asking about "baby" and kisses him first before he goes to bed at night!!! It is a beautiful thing...especially since I know it will be short lived once Noah gets a little older.

I will be doing a post this weekend comparing my experience at Northside to my experience at Crawford Long...and they were TOTALLY different. Enjoy the pictures!!!!
