Eli’s Birth Story

Today I have the honor of guest posting over at The Grant Life. Kelley is running a Labor of Love series on Wednesdays featuring labor and delivery stories. Today it is all about Eli’s grand entrance into this world just a little over two years ago!

It’s a good thing I got it written now as so much of that long day is now quite a murky haze in my memory. Luckily my husband is a writer who takes detailed notes on just about everything, especially the birth of his first child. (He said it seemed like he made people attending the birth a bit nervous when he would pick up his journal and jot stuff down from time to time. Sorry about that, but I’m still glad he did it!) But now it’s all written down with many photographs (don’t worry- nothing that would make the squeamish squirm or the modest blush) so Eli will always have his story regardless of the state of my recall as the years progress.

Please follow the link to meet up with us there.
