birth story- part 3

Click here to catch up on Part 1 and here for Part 2.

I wanted to mention that we weren't supposed to have video cameras on during delivery, but Kirby snuck it in attached to my camera strap.  He just let it roll as the whole thing took place.  That is why the video is sideways during some parts and not the best "motion picture" Kirby has shot. ;)

Anyway... on to the 3rd and final part of Kaden's birth story.

I was all cleaned up and stitched up & then went to recovery while Kirby got to hang out in the nursery with Kaden.  Everyone told me the 2 hours in recovery would go by so quickly and before I knew it I would be reunited with our baby... but it was the longest 2 hours of my life!

While I sat and watched the clock slowly tick by, this is what was happening in the nursery...

getting weighed

warmin' up

getting washed up

hanging out & getting adjusted to the new world

Finally after Kaden and I were ready, we were reunited again.... another emotional time, as you can imagine.

*note the "poop comment" from the nurse... he still poops like that!  I'm sure he'll love this video when he's older with a girlfriend ;)

And from this point on, we enjoyed our little man while staying in the hospital and getting lots of help from all the friendly staff there.  We were big question askers, so it was a big change to leave the hospital and do it all ourselves a few days later.
