After prepping me for surgery and minutes ticking, she finally came. Finley Marie Gacon 8 pounds 11 ounces and 21 inches long. I was so tired I could barely smile. I heard her cry and I looked over at my husband and I knew all was okay.
I have so much more to explain on becoming a new mom. I want to explain that it was not a fairy tale. Not at first. That will be another post. I was relieved she was healthy and okay. I felt like an entirely different human being. Now, I love being her mom. I continue to love her more each day. I even love Eric so much more now. We are a family and it makes me cry on how lucky we are.
It really made my day to share this today. Stay tuned for the second part of my journey after we arrived home from the hospital.
