Hayden Patrick {a birth story}

It's hard to believe my baby is two weeks old...harder still to believe I could still be pregnant with him, had he not come three weeks early. I haven't written his birth story yet, but it was definitely one of the sweetest days of my life...well, in the top eleven :)

In the mean time, here is his birth story in photos ~ which in my opinion is even better than words....

So beautiful! I started tearing up just when I heard the first song. I sat and watched the whole thing while holding my little one, remembering his birth story 5 months ago. Thanks for sharing!

I started crying when your husband was holding you. It was a good cry. You are one lucky and blessed woman. I'm glad you had lots of sweet cuddling afterwards, and your whole family was together.

Just watching this video is a blessing and I pray that my husband and I can have a love like you an yours. We have only been married 4 years and are about to have our baby#3 in just a few weeks. This was so encouraging to watch, I can't wait to have a big family some day. You and your family are an amazing testimony to so many, thank you for sharing. :)

Whoa, he is so perfect he looks fake. His expressions are so cute and he was so alert. Such a beautiful family to welcome him!

That was a PERFECT birth story!!!! What a beautiful video! What a blessing to have all of these sweet memories. Abigail and I were just going through the pictures of James's birth the other day. It seems like yesterday, and I cannot believe he is like 16 weeks now. It goes SO fast. I know you are enjoying every second with him. :) xoxo

You are right the video said it PERFECT. I love video's, well also posts but when you read the story it really doesn't show all the expressions and intense love that this video/pictures have captured. Congratulations to you all.
