  8. I like that she's got a sneer already. And you? YOU?

    Well, you're beautiful and your hair is perfect and your makeup flawless and I REFUSE TO BELIEVE YOU JUST GAVE BIRTH.

    Oh, and come see me. The REAL me.

  12. I must tell your readers that for a person who had very little to no chance of conceiving and who had a rough pregnancy with several scares, you handled the actual childbirth like you had been waiting and preparing for it all your life! This photo was a few hours after the birth but DURING and IMMEDIATELY AFTER the birth, you looked wonderful. When your Daddy saw you, two minutes after, he told me, "She looks like she just took a walk in the park!" He and I were so scared and worried for you and Bella, and things could not have been more perfect.

    Bella got a good start with a Mommy who was so ready, willing and able to give her all the love a child could have.

    Happy Mother's Day, my precious daughter! I love you so!

  14. Hey, darlin'. It's Tuesday. I need me some NPL.

    If you don't remember what that stands for then we are soooooo broke up.

  15. It was just...so...easy. Really. Like Mom said, the trials and tribulations that led up to Bella were so immense, that the actual birth was a snap. I didn't break a sweat, and did 20 hours of labor with no painkillers and a VERY supportive, totally in-the-game husband at my side, and a doula who helped when needed and stayed out of the way she not needed.

    And YES, when they said, "It's time to push," I made sure I freshened my lipstick. Hey, this is the South, and among my family are MANY CAMERAS. If you look through that flickr set, you will see the tousled hair and dopey expression of the immediate aftermath of the birth, but it was just such a whirlwind! For the later pictures, after Isabella had been bathed and dressed, I did take the time to put on a fresh, non-hospital gown and brush my hair! I knew these pictures would be following me around for a LONG time, and my Mama didn't raise no fools! ;-) Thank you all for your lovely comments, especially you, Mom.
