|280 days of anticipation and 24 hours of labor later, our precious little boy is finally here. Alexander Joseph McCauley entered into this beautiful world on May 26th at 7:55 p.m. He was 8 lbs 4 ounces and 22 1/2 inches long. The little guy has quite the set of legs on him. :)
The entire experience has overwhelmed me with love and finding the words to describe it is impossible. Although we had 9 months to prepare for this day - reading books, talking to other mothers, going to child birth classes, etc...nothing truly prepared me for what is now my life. I had plenty of time to dream about what his birthday would look like, but the intensity of labor surprised me (to say the least) yet transformed me as the hours passed by into this person who would do absolutely anything for this little guy who is propped in my arms as I type. My heart is overflowing and my eyes are rarely on anything but him. My life has completely changed...and I'm convinced it doesn't get any better than this.
(there are more photos to come but I have a little guy calling for me) :)
