Grae Elizabeth's Birth story | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Grae Elizabeth's Birth story

I've been trying to find the words to type up her birth story for weeks but I decided to post this marco polo I sent to 2 of my best friends because it tells the story and if I type it up, it will be 100 pages long. This first video was made a day after we got home from the hospital and the second video was made 8.5 weeks after Grae's birth. The second video is just an update on how we are all doing and more details that my doctor had told us about. Videos have been removed for some privacy but here is a much shorter version below.

Overall, I am so so SO grateful that Grae is safe and here and perfect. We love her SO much!!!! We are forever bonded through her birth and I will never take her for granted because she is 100% a miracle and a blessing for our family. We all are completely in love with our little Grae baby. Her middle name is Elizabeth because that is my middle name and it fit perfectly with her first name. We are all forever changed from this experience but in the best way. We hold life even more close than we ever did before and it just makes us so so soooo much more grateful to have our 2 perfect little girls to love on forever and ever. These pictures are some of my favorite from my birth. They hold so much emotion and memory of that night. Darian gave us so many photos that I will cherish forever because they are memories of our miracle, but I am keeping most of them to myself because they really are so so so special to me.

That night they called a code crimson because I needed so much blood for a transfusion. Every little detail (especially the details where Grae and my lives were saved) I am grateful for. It would be so easy for me to forever be sad about what happened, but I want to be grateful for the miracles. I know God didn't cause this to happen, but he let it happen. He also blessed us to have all the staff that we needed that night to preform everything perfectly for us. I feel like we are especially supposed to be here, and we have a deeper purpose that God will help us figure out as time goes on. I am a little numb to everything, I don't like to think too much about it and I don't know if I've let myself fully feel everything emotionally, but right now I am doing pretty good. Just mostly trying to focus all of my energy towards my girls and Jason, because they are the most important things to me. Since I am still recovering from the hernia repair, I haven't been able to fully do all the things I can't wait to do (like carrying BOTH my girls, going places more often, working out and gaining strength again, etc) but that time will soon come to be normal again. Right now I am trying hard to focus and soak in all of these first months of Grae's life and all the adorable little details about her and her growing personality.
