41 weeks was how long he made her wait.
41 weeks that she spent dreaming… wondering…
41 weeks of longing for this exact moment… the moment when she could hold him in her arms and simply just breathe him in.
41 weeks worth waiting for ♥
You may have taken your good old time, sweet baby Max, but don’t worry – no one’s holding it against you. I know this because I saw it with my own eyes. You weren’t even 24 hours old yet, when I went to the hospital to meet you. I stood in that room and witnessed the outpouring of love that your family has for you. That room at Southwest General Hospital, Max, is the room where you were welcomed with open arms into this family that loves you so deeply. That room is where your big brother, Sammy, got to meet you – and from what I saw – you were instant best friends. That hospital room is where your Daddy got to finally got to run his fingers through your hair and where your Mommy could finally snuggle you in her arms. That room is where all four of your grandparents fell in love at first sight. That room is where you got your first diaper change and your first meal. That room is where your parents learned your cues – they learned that when you put your fingers to your mouth, you were hungry and that if you stayed out of your blanket too long, you got chilly. That room is where, all of a sudden, that 41 week wait didn’t seem so long after all. That room, Max? In those first 48 hours – it was everything.
Welcome to the world, Maxwell ❤️
