Tennyson's Beautiful Birth

I have so much I want to tell you about
Tennyson's birth.

So. Much.
It was beautiful,
and special,
and everything I had dreamed it would be
for 5 long years while we waited.
Mixed with a few surprises (and sort of scary ones at that).

There is so much I want to say,
but I am exhausted, and sore,
and sort of lost in a happy la la land
where I just want to stare at
this yummy little boy
all the live long day.

And, if I'm being honest,
I'm still trying to gather my thoughts.
So, more details will come.
In fact, I look forward to reliving it.

All I can say for now is,
thank heaven for pictures that paint thousands of words.
And thank heaven for amazingly talented sister in laws
who know how to turn those pictures into birth videos
complete with music and images that have me literally bawling
in 2.2 seconds flat.

And thank heaven for Big Brothers like Kortland.
I am a lucky girl indeed.
