    What is the first thought you had when you saw your newborn child for the first time?

    The first moments of seeing your newborn after months of anticipating the birth, what did you think?

    With my first child, all thought fled my mind. I was just dumbstruck by her beauty and the wonderful, indescribable feeling that this is my child. And I cried for about ten minutes, too.

    With the second, he and I both barely escaped dying, and he had to be delivered by c-section. I was just relieved he was ok. And I counted every finger, every toe, every teeny tiny golden hair. And I was then JOYFUL; he was perfect!

    With the third I was just ecstatic, amazed. She was gorgeous, too. And the doctor had said I could never conceive again- well ha, ha doc! I was thinking, what a miracle!

    With my fourth, I was again relieved. He was premature, and looked like a tiny old man. But by golly, he was the biggest, healthiest premie they'd ever had in the ward! I just felt lucky as heck! And I still do.

    When it comes to our newborns I think often we FEEL those precious moments, in a way mortal words simply fail us. And perhaps that is the way it is supposed to be.

    I held my wife's hand and said something to the effect of "Holy cow. We did it. We made that."
    ...and then I cried like a little girl. True story.

    I felt as though I had known her forever.

    "Seriously? I just pushed this kid out of me? What do I do with it now?"

    Beautiful, I know. I was one of those people who took a few hours to really realize that she was MY baby and I made her. The first time I saw her I was just in shock from the labour and very, very overwhelmed.

      Labor and Delivery is hard work and overwhelming.
