Please excuse the bad photo of me...15 hours of very rough pitocin induced labor, pre eclampsia, and swelling like a beached whale don't make for the best photo op!

It was in this moment that I realized all of the troubles Daddy & I went through to bring you here were completely worth it. All of the braxton hicks contractions, the constant heartburn, my ankles & feet swelling up to a not so pretty size, 15 hours of pitocin induced labor, the pre eclampsia, the constant problems with sciatica...all of it!
The first time they showed me your gorgeous little face, you smiled at me. It was only a brief second because they had to work on you to make sure you were breathing right & take you to NICU to monitor you closely. But you smiled, you smiled as if you had known I was your Mommy. I know that later in life we will bump heads because you will think you're so grown & mature, and I will not want to admit that every day you do grow a little more...and I know that the very smile you first gave me when our eyes met will more than likely be the very smile that I will never be able to say no to...but would I change it for anything within this universe? Not a chance! In this moment I vowed to be the very best Mommy I can be, and I can only hope that to you my Sweet Rayna, that it is up to par. I love you my precious angel!
