Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life as a Mom, A Homesteader, A Blogger and A Wife.

The very first moment

I knew that the first moment the girls, the boys and Genna met Jack is was going to be special. After I had the girls and they were whisked to the NICU I was away from them for over 12 hours. I wasn't in great shape from the blood loss and they were not able to be with me. I remember my Dad talking about the look on Genna's face when she met them. He said it was something he will never forget. So I knew that in that single moment that the older kids laid eyes on Jack it was going to be something special.

This is why it was critically important to us that they be the first to meet him. We had planned for them to come early in the day but I struggled with the anesthesia. It wasn't until late afternoon that they got to meet him. I made sure that I was cognizant enough to remember that moment. I can still remember the knock on the door when the girls arrived. I remember my heart jumping, making sure I started the video recorder in my brain.

It was a magical moment and I knew it really mattered. None of them would ever remember the moment they met but I would. One by one I got to see their faces go to a complete state of amazement when they looked at this tiny little person for the first time. It must have been a mirror of my own face when I got to meet him.

They hardly spoke...

All of their questions were answered.

No more "what would he look like" or "how tiny will he be"...

There were no remarkable photos taken... just a few snapshots to mark the moment.

It was as if no one wanted to stop watching these little people all get to know each other.

Just pure magic

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
