Celebrating 5 years of Love
What a special week! I've been dying to post photos for days, but we have been flooded with visits from family and friends and it has been hard to find a few free moments.
Our son, Ryan Thomas was born on April 16th. It was a long, hard labor. I was in labor for 49.5 hours. We had a lot of bumps in the road. I was exhausted, his heart rate kept dropping, and my blood pressure was all over the place. It ended at 11:25pm with a c-section. He was wedged against my pelvis and facing the wrong way (sunny side up). I wasn't excited by the idea of having a c-section, but was so glad that we could put an end to the process. All that matters is everyone is safe. We spent 3 days in the hospital before coming home.
We are all doing great! I've attached a few photos of him. He arrived just in time to celebrate our 5 year anniversary with us. I wanted to do something special, so I took this photo of his little feet with our wedding rings. I love that they make a heart shape.
Thank you all for the wonderful support over the last few months. Ryan is looking forward to meeting you all.
