boy george is here, people.

silly you, not the hit 80's singer. my new nephew...HELLO!

my sister let me stay through the whole birth and it was incredible. she was a real trooper and did great. after 45 minutes of pushing, ol' george came out.

it was beautiful. not gross, like you might think.

 i was overwhelmed with happiness for her. so many memories flashed through my mind as i watched her deliver. and watched her hold george for the first time. and then learn to breast feed. her world changed in a moment and i was there.

i can't help but remember that overwhelming sense of newness when my kids were born. it's so exciting and scary at the same time.

i don't know...it made me want to have another one. but then i'd have to get pregnant again and that is soooooo ugg. well, you know. it's a freaking sick-fest. and now i have this fear of having another miscarriage. it's a lot to go through. and yet, seeing baby george made it all seem worth it. no, that's crazy talk.what the hell am i even saying? pretend like i didn't admit that.

  10. Yeah babies! You are correct Jami it is worth it. I was totally freaked out the whole first trimester with Caleb after my miscarriage, but it is a true miracle and worth whatever it takes to get those beautiful beings. You can do it, just keep your heart open :)

  12. I had my most recent baby completely naturally (Emily helped push me that direction), and looking back now I loved it. And whenever I think about the experience I want it all over again. and again. and again.

    That moment when you hold your baby for the first time. And these pictures bring back those memories. A LOT.

    Almost to the point where I say who cares if I barf my brains out for nine months, and who cares if I can't walk because I have pubic symphasis.

    And then my kids fighting in the background bring me back to reality. . .

    And let's face it I don't have Duggar stamina here.

    But oh how I wish I had pictures like these to look back and remember with perfect clarity (each and every detail) how amazing the experiences were!

  15. Ok, that tear picture is IN-CRED-IBLE. Seriously. Love it. I'm glad I got to meet this little guy on Sunday. He still looks like he's in the womb, love that. :) Yeah, that overwhelming feeling, is exactly why I want another..its an emotion that just cannot be replicated. And you know they're worth it all. :)
