March 31 at 9:55am our sweet little boy, Henrik Aleksander Klizs, came into this world. Loved, tiny and with a full head of dark wispy hair, Henrik completed our lives in so many ways.
I think hospital time with a fresh new baby has to be some of the sweetest time in any family’s life, at least it feels like that for us. As exhausting as it is waking up to poking and prodding from the nurses, feeling the pain of the delivery after the meds wear off, nursing round the clock as the new baby learns to latch and so on. The time we spend in the hospital is always time I look back on and miss in many ways. I think its that high I’m on as a new mom after meeting one of my greatest loves of all time, that I miss most, but it happens to be in the hospital that I start my bond with my babies while eating ice chips and looking my children over marvelling at the details.
I’m so beyond happy that Nicole was able to come and capture our time with Henrik just around that 24 hour mark. They may not be posed or in the most glamorous of settings but Michael and I, loving on our new baby, tired and badly in need of a shower is just the way I want to remember it all.
