Falling In Love

September 8, 2012

Matt and I have spent the day getting to know Maze – we took a bajillion photographs, worked on a video, re-counted the entire birth together (most of which I barely remember!) so I can recall the details when I write my birth story, practiced breastfeeding, and did some skin-to-furr bonding.

Here are some of our favorite photos!!

33 Susan E September 8, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Congratulations and I can’t wait to hear your full birth story. :-) Seeeeee, didn’t we tell you to be patient and it’ll be worth the wait? My first was about 40 weeks, 6 days and my 2nd child was about 39 weeks, 6 days counting from when we conceived. Of course because we were trying for several years & had some miscarriages, I always marked everything down so it was just our good estimate. ;-) God knows the exact date and time the baby wants to come out and I felt at peace in the last weeks and just try to stay close to home. Thankfully my water broke at home for both children where I was close to bathtowels and my bathroom. Enjoy the bonding. Please don’t feel obligated to blog until you got everything in the “Mommy” department finished because the readers can wait. :) The time goes fast from now on. I love the sentence that you said “you could do it all over again even with the pain and temporary discomfort” when you meet and hold your precious child that lived inside of you for nine months. It truly is a miracle.

Isn’t it awesome to fall in love with your new baby?! He is just perfect! So happy everyone is doing well! (is it weird to say that I started a twitter account just so I could follow your labor? I’m not a weirdo or anything ;) enjoy all the new baby snuggles! So happy to hear that breastfeeding is off to a good start, too!

He is just undeniably, unquestionably beautiful. Matt looks happy and you are glowing and look as peaceful and content as the new man in your life.

Was the surge of hormones directly after birth as awesome as everyone says they are?

You should definitely zoom in on the first picture of Matt & Mazen, & frame it — sooo cute!

I do not remember much about labor & delivery either, but I was medicated.

I have never seen a baby smile so much as Mazen does. He is such a cutie!

What a beautiful family. I am crazy for your blog more than ever right now. I feel like Maze is part of my life. I’m just yearning to hear how much you LOVE him. I’m also wanting to hear how you feel now looking back on your healthy pregnancy ( you worked hard to always do what would be best for Mazen) and how you feel now minus the protuberance! I totally look forward to you wonder filled posts, Kath! Many more blessings and joys await you! Bravo!

When my son was born, I not only fell in love with him, I fell in love with my husband all over again… seeing him interact with the baby, and all of the UNBELIEVABLE support he gave to me. Based on these pics, I’m sure you’re on the same road :) Enjoy every second!

Hey Kath, I’m a long-time fan of your blog hailing from Downunder. I don’t usually post but Mazen is so gorgeous I couldn’t resist not saying anything. Congratulations to you and Matt on the little addition to your family. Posts with- and of- the bub are welcomed just as much as posts about your delish overnight oats :p

Hey Kath,

I’ve been following you since 2007… Amazing to see you become a mother now! I am so happy for you, Matt, and your entire family. I had a baby boy back in December 2010 and life has never been the same. Boys are so sweet and I know people tell you this all the time, but they grow so fast! Treasure every single newborn second (sounds like you are!) because he will be running circles around you before you know it. He is so beautiful and I wish you nothing but the best!! xoxo

Oh Kath, the first few weeks are so precious (well ALL the weeks are precious, but still)…..soak up every single itty bitty moment! The way the newborn baby still curls up in a ball on your shoulder….the tiny mouse squeaks….the adorable newborn grunts. Ooooooh how I remember those sweet moments. They grow so quickly but the good news is that you continue to discover and fall in love with new things every single day. Parenthood is the BEST! Enjoy!

Kath- these are all so good :) The one where Matt is bending down to kiss the side of Maze’s cheek/face is AWESOME. You can totally see the baby responding to his Dad!! So lovely and just amazing! When you actually stop to think about the entire process of trying to get pregnant, to growing a baby inside of you and then birthing baby, getting to know him, and realizing baby already knows you guys (!!!)…its simply amazing, isnt it? Crazy. Just crazy.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful moments with all of us. If I didn’t have 4 kids already, these pics make me want more…and really still kinda do :)

Cheers!

I love the name! I love how it breaks down ethnic/ cultural differences. Perhaps a sign that things between the middle east and the U.S. are getting better? I told my friend Mazen about you naming your son this name and he thought it was really cool and it actually made him feel really good because he faces a lot of stereotypes in our town ( small college beach town) ( he is Muslim from I believe Libya). Such a great honor to the middle east. Praise Allah!

Don’t know if you follow Molly Wisenberg’s Orangette blog, but she was pregnant with nearly the same date as you (9/4 for her) and had her baby this morning: “Our daughter June was born at 6:29 this morning. Nine pounds. 20.5 inches. And a full head of wavy, almost-black hair! ” Is there something in the blogesphere? :) My great-neice is pg with #3, due 9/30 (girl) – they’re everywhere.

Mazen is such a doll! I thought he looked like Karen in his birth photos, now, more like himself. Enjoy!

Been following you and Matt’s adventure for these last 9 months. It’s strange how you can be so happy for people you’ve never met. :) Congrats and best of luck! You are both going to be great parents! Maze is a lucky little dude! :)

Congrats to you and Matt on your little one! Maze is absolutely precious!

Also, I wanted to tell you I visited Charlottesville for the first time this weekend, and thanks to your blog we enjoyed some amazing food! We went to Eppie’s, Fry’s Spring Station, and Arch’s, and loved everything we ate :)

He’s beautiful! Love his name, too! Congrats! And I’m so so so so proud of you for doing it natural. You’re pictures actually made me cry, because we’re done having babies, but your pics made me want to do it again! ;)
