A mother’s new dress and my gorgeous model!!!
Hello everyone, it’s been a while since my last post, I have been busy being a mother and grandmother!!! My daughter had a healthy beautiful baby boy on March 14th 2015. He weighed 8lbs 6 oz. I stayed with her from February 25 to April 7. Brody Andrew was born 1 week later than his due date at the Canmore hospital in Alberta Canada and ended up being born via C-section. His mom had a bit of a hard time with being in labour and not dilating. She ended up trying to have an epidural for over an hour where they stuck a needle in her back at least 20 times while she begged them to stop, where she was told not to move, and this was the best way for her…??? Should of took a picture of the needle marks and bruising on her back. I am sure there was no need of trying THAT many times… After and hour of figuring out it wasn’t working they put her to sleep and took the baby out. I think that borders on torture and they should have never tried that long. I am sure after a few tries they could have figured out that it wasn’t working for her. She was told that because of her short stature and the curve of her spine with her big belly she could not get her back rounded the way she was supposed to be…. But after all that everything was great, he is so adorable you just want to stare at him all day. His dad and I, not dry eyed, got to see him first. It was a special moment to see a new part of your bloodline brought to life and he looked so perfect. Such a blessing and miracle of life!!!
So after all that, I was supposed to go home earlier but we decided that it was best that I stay a while longer to help mama as she wasn’t allowed any heavy lifting or driving for 4 to 6 weeks and daddy was still in school as he is just finishing a course as an electrician which he passed with flying colors!!! Thankfully I was able to change my plane ticket back to NS for a small fee and the difference of the plane ticket when I bought it, to the new date that I would be leaving. It was really sad to leave this but yet it was nice having my own life back. This is the longest I have ever been away from home! I have always been a person who likes to be home but I think I am getting better at it… I missed my husband, my cats, my bed and my friends!!
So during my visit I was going to make myself a dress……but my daughter liked the colors too much and it got turned into her dress lol
Here are the pictures I took two weeks after the baby was born. She is an absolute gorgeous mother and model!!!
“How’d I get so lucky, lucky lucky me” I kept singing this song as I was editing my pics…now I don’t believe in luck because I know where all things come from and I know I am truly blessed with a nice home, husband that thinks I am great, two beautiful children and two beautiful grandchildren.
Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.
