So I am finally home and ready to make contact with the world. Brighton decided he had no more room left in mommy and came about two weeks early. Labor was long and I ended up needing a C-section. I guess my hip bones just weren't big enough. This was actually my first time in the hospital and definitely was an experience. Brighton's Jaundice score jumped on the last day we were there and he had to be put under the "lights". We also have been keeping him on lights while at home, but got him tested this morning and he is doing much better and is able to be off the lights tonight. It was so fun to have him come out with so much hair, we just love it! Grandpa Alan emailed a picture of Chris when he was a baby and they are just identical! My mom laughs when I hold this dark hair, olive skin little boy. He was extremely wiggly when he was in my stomach and this has not changed. He loves to be snuggled in up close. My mom and Chris' mom were both able to make it down for the delivery and it was so nice to have them here throughout the week. Being new parents we were clueless and needed lots of help. Also, since he was early the apartment wasn't ready and Chris and his mom took lots of time to clean and get it ready while my mom was with me in the hospital. Well, that's enough for now, I've got to go and snuggle my new little one!

Being pregnant definitely comes with its highs and lows. Some highs are knowing that soon I will have a little baby in my arms, the closeness it brings Chris and I, feeling him move inside and knowing he will be a little wiggle worm, picking out baby things, the excitement of others and so much more.
Another high is getting my very own parking space!
Baby Showers have been an absolute high, thanks to all those who have helped out!
But then of course some lows are pain when he moves, elephant feet, retaining water, back pain, wanting to diet and work out to get rid of this ridiculous weight, sleepless nights, and LABOR AHHHHH!
It will all be worth it in the end.
