So a few hours after I wrote this last Monday, I went to the doctor for a check-up. Still no contractions, but there was labor progress. Fast forward a few more hours and contractions started steadily at 3 pm.... and well, I had a baby. On Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 9:53 I gave birth to my daughter - Georgia Grace Lopatka, 8 lbs. 4 oz. Best day of my life.
As you can imagine exhaustion is here but so is joy. So much joy. And gratitude. How do I get to be a mom to this perfect little gift? I'm still in awe. I haven't gone through my camera pictures yet but here are a few IPhone photos for your Monday.
PS - Later this week, Kari will be here talking about her travels afar!
