Wow! We are a family. It still seems quite surreal. I can’t believe that we have been entrusted with this absolutely amazing little man. He is so precious. So far, he has been an extremely content baby. He likes nothing better than to sleep in his mommy or daddy’s arms, along with eating and needing diaper changes nonstop. Trevor is quite a little Houdini, managing to escape even the tightest of swaddled blankets with little effort. He makes the funniest faces, especially his "concerned" face.
He was born last Friday at 4:25 pm via cesarean delivery. We went into the hospital expecting to me to stay awake for the birth. Unfortunately, the anesthesiologist wouldn’t perform a spinal due to complications with my back as a result of a car accident a couple of years ago. So that meant that I would have to be put out under general anesthesia, and we wouldn’t meet him until after the surgery. I was scared, nervous, anxious, and every other feeling you could imagine. Trevor was born with a very concerned look on his face. He was still not quite ready to make an appearance.
I came to in the recovery room with Brian holding Trevor. I had to wait about 30 minutes before my pain medication kicked in and I was lucid enough to keep my eyes open to meet him. Trevor was bright-eyed, and remarkably alert. After a while we were wheeled out to the hallway where met with our families briefly to say hi. We were then whisked down the elevator to our new home for the next few days. The nursing staff at the hospital was amazing. They took great care of us during our weekend stay. It was nice for us to stay together as a family and get to know each other a little better.
It is amazing to see how much he grows and changes daily! Stay tuned for more updates.
