welcome to life, boho baby...
me and boho baby minutes after birth
the boho dudes a few hours after birth
Cedar Leonard Kroon
Born November 22nd, 2008
8 lbs 7 oz
He came just a few hours after we arrived. He waited for us. One hour after K's water broke, 9 minutes after she started pushing. Boho Boy and I cradling K on each side, arms around her back, hands holding hers. She was enveloped in our arms and we all breathed and pushed together in unison. She was a warrior through the non-medicated pain. He came just after a few intense pushes. My heart took off in flight when I heard his cry. He's beautiful...absolutely perfectly beautiful (with a purple/blue bruised face for coming out so fast...he will be pink in a few days).
We each have our own room here in this gorgeous brand new hospital. Rooms with a view. Sliding wood doors. Spacious. We hung white lights. The birth parents are next door so we can share the love. Cedar is with us in ours right now. Boho Boy is feeding him his third feeding since birth. It is 3:15AM and we cannot stop staring at him or one another. He's so calm and chill and beautiful. I miss him when I leave for a few minutes.
When I re-entered the room, Boho Boy said..."you are so beautiful" and when I watch him feed our child, I get goosebumps down my spine like a giddy crushed out school girl. We are falling more in love with each other and discovering a brand new kind of love for our son...together.
All in just a few hours. This is just the beginning...
