1 Week Later

It has been 1 week since we welcomed our little boy into this world. It's been the FASTEST week of my entire life. I can't believe we are here already. It's also my due date today. I have looked forward to this day for so long, and now here it is. And I now have that very special someone that I have been waiting on too!!

Being a mom is the most unexplainable feeling in the world. How cliche is that statement, right?? People used to always say that to me, and I would wonder what that really meant. Now, I know. I look down at Charlie's sweet cheeks, and his perfect nose, and his beautiful little body, and I am in awe. Is he seriously ours forever?? And the fact that we were responsible for making him in all his perfectness is pretty awesome too. There is nothing more special in this lifetime. I know that for sure.

It's been a whirlwind of a week and I feel like we have a real handle on this whole thing. Much more so than I ever expected us to. I was so anxious and nervous about how we were going to handle this parenting thing. I am impressed with our confidence as parents, even though we really have no idea what in the world we are doing. We work together as a team, and it's kind of fun. I told my Dad that I felt really good about how I was feeling, and he said that's because it's instinctual. It just kicks in, and we just do it. Right on, Dad. I agree.

I am so blessed today. And I am so thankful too. Life is good.

It is really instinctual, you just KNOW what to do. Maybe you should listen to your dad more ;)

So sweet and so true. You'll hear every little sound he makes and respond to everything he does/needs like you've been doing it forever.

It's amazing how much love you can have for such a little peron, isn't it?

How awesome Emily! I'm glad everything is settling in for you guys. It's hard to imagine he wasn't there before isn't it? That is how I feel about Dex. We have to meet up sometime soon!

I'm glad to hear your first week as parents went smoothly, and you've been at it for almost two weeks now! I can't wait to experience the feelings you wrote about. Congrats again, King family!
