At last! Late last week (just a little over 41 weeks), our beautiful baby boy was born. As anticipated, it was an incredibly emotional journey for hubby and I, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our beautiful Nukie.
I hope to share my birth story at some point… which in truth, was not what I had hoped for. A friend of mine (who also recently delivered at NYU Langone) had told me earlier last week, over drinks at the Wren, to get ready for “the most intense ride of your life.”
She was not wrong.
Though I will say this, whenever I see my newborn son’s face, I see nothing but sheer love and perfection. All I can recall was the distinct moment when they gave him to me in the delivery room. With that very moment, all of the pains and frustrations instantly dissipates, and what remains is this overwhelming sense of fulfillment, love and joy. We worked extremely hard to get here, and we feel so incredibly lucky to be first-time parents!
