The Best Day of My Life!

today is the day i have waited for for nine and a half years. today is the day i held my son for the first time and looked into his beautiful face and fell completely, madly, and irrevocably in love. today is the day i became a mother. i have lots of pics to post, but my iPad and blogger don't seem to get along too well. i can, however, upload a few to facebook, so feel free to look there. in the meantime, i'll give you a brief rundown of the day's events. we met at the hospital at 7am and he was born at 12:47pm. i'm usually very squeamish and was really nervous about being there for the delivery, but it was actually a beautiful experience. it went really fast and he cried as soon as he came out. it was music to my ears! when i saw his face, the tears just flowed. i sobbed as i snapped pics of him getting cleaned up and weighed. i was so overcome by emotion that i could barely see to take the pics! mack weighed in at 6lbs 12oz and measured 19.75". he's a lean little guy with a calm personality. he rarely cries so far - didn't even make a sound when they had to prick his foot twice to test his blood sugar level! he eats like a champ, looks right at you when you talk to him, spends most of his time observing his surroundings, and looks like an angel when he sleeps. he is absolutely perfect in every way! he's in the nursery getting a bath at the moment and i am having withdrawals already! i can't even begin to describe the depth of the love i feel for this perfect little stranger. the moment i laid eyes on him, i experienced a complete paradigm shift, my entire world suddenly revolving around him, like a gravitational pull drew me to him and i'll never escape its grasp...but i don't want to. i love this feeling. i love this new chapter of my life. i love this tiny person who was the one that changed everything...more than words can say.
