I didn't cry when Henry was born.
Stone did. Mi Madre did. My sister did. Katie Jean did. But I didn't.
Don't get the wrong idea....I was over the moon when I saw that sweet boys face, but I think I was in shock.
1) I just pushed a baby out of my body.....in 18 minutes to boot!
2) Throughout the entire pregnancy when someone would ask me what I thought I was having I would say 'boy'. But really in the back of my mind I just figured the baby would be a girl....I'm a girly girl, so I always pictured myself having a girl. SOOOO, when the baby came out and I saw (forgive my frankness) balls...I.WAS.SHOCKED.
3) I just pushed a baby out of my body....
Fast forward to 2 weeks and 3 days post-birth.
I'm sitting on the couch holding a sleeping Henry, just staring at his face, and it hit me......
Stone and I made him. This tiny little person is made up of pieces (hopefully the best pieces) of the two of us.
....and I cried
