The Week Before Liam and His First Week - In Pictures

From the first pain to his entrance into the world...2 hours. Yes, that was fast. Yes, that means no pain meds. That's not what I had in mind but now I can say I had the FULL experience. I officially know what PAIN means indeed.
Liam's a very mellow little guy. My dream came true.
Leila just wants to kiss his head and feet.
Luke smiles at him a lot.
Today Rob took Leila to the zoo and she rode on Becky the elephant.
We've had delicious meals delivered by friends since returning from the hospital.
An outpouring of love and support from family, friends, and neighbors that are also good friends.
We're feeling pretty blessed right now.
God is good.

Gina- I am in awe of you going natural. Liam is just beautiful; I'm so pleased for you. Luke looks so grown-up in his little safari jacket! Leila is so radiant and beautiful. God is great, Memsahib!

I also love your haircut! It looks terrific.

Much love to the Carlins.

Oh my goodness - no pain relief ?!?!? I suppose you didn't have time.

I had another LOOOOOONG labour, like the first, so an epidural was most definitely needed, and probably even then not enough ;)

He is gorgeous, Gina .. as are all your children. Lovely photos :)

Leila and I are SO alike...I just couldn't stay away from Jay's feet when he was born...I had to kiss them over and over again!!!

I love the picture of her sitting next to him on the floor...Like his personal golden-haired angel!!

You look so great pregnant !

I love the Rainforest cafe, I wish we had one here.

I am such a baby when it comes to pain, that must've been quite an experience.
