It was exactly a week ago that Aiden was thrown onto my tummy by the midwife. I took my clothes off so he could lie skin to skin on my chest and all I could see was his skull and all his hair. He started screaming (well not very loud, but making noises) pretty quickly. Jon had to walk around to the other side to see him and take a photo. He was definitely an Aiden.
I was really shocked by all the emotions that comes with this experience. Nothing anyone has ever told me has been close to explaining how it would feel to have your baby here with you. Jon, Aiden and me have had an awesome week and we look forward to days, weeks and years to come.
