he's here. he's here.

meet cohen.
the most perfect baby boy in the whole wide world [not that i'm biased or anything]

he arrived into the world on sunday, march 13th after 27 hours of labor, an hour of pushing, and zero drugs. the labor process was arduous and completely exhausting [i'll save the birth story for a later post], but the minute the nurses placed him on my chest all of the pain went away. he was here, we were now parents, and he was worth every single minute of labor. god has blessed chris and i immensely.

we are back home now and excited for every little minute with cohen.
i'll post more pictures and get back to regular blogging after we get into some kind of a routine.

i just can't believe i'm a mommy!

have a great week everyone!
happy thursday! {monica}

  9. Yeah Cohen! You and Chris are going to be wonderful parents. We read the book Babywise and Piper now sleeps 8 hours a night. It's worth reading if you haven't already. Ask Zoe about it. God Bless!
