I like to use the term "cesarean birth" because that is what it is. I have felt like saying "C-Section" can undermine the fact that I am, indeed, giving birth! It is more than just a major abdominal surgery, it a wonderful, miraculous birth!!
It is hard to put my feelings into words before the birth though. Knowing that I am going in to be laid upon a table, my body operated on, and then meeting our precious babe is such a surreal thought.
It is here! Finally! The waiting is over and we get to see the beautiful face that God has molded inside me for 9 long months!
Oh baby Aspen, you have no idea how excited we are to be able to hold you and cuddle you in our arms! I just know that you will be so beautiful, and have that intoxicating newborn scent! I am looking forward to kissing the top of your head and caressing your delicate skin! I only hope that your brothers will be gentle and loving to you! They can get a little rowdy and obnoxious sometimes, but I know you will be just a tough and strong-willed as they are.
We love you already precious babe.
