We had a wonderful birth experience with Spencer. My labor was MUCH shorter but not that much more intense than with Adaline so I feel like it was a piece of cake! We asked for no visitors while we were in the hospital so we could have some private time with Spencer. We also wanted Adaline to be the first to meet her little brother, and it was so special. She walked in, quietly stared at Spencer and said, "Hi, Baby Brother."
Within the first two weeks, Spencer was able to meet both sets of grandparents, both aunts and his wonderful cousins. In my sleep-deprived state I forgot to pull out the camera when the aunts came to visit- such a bummer.
(Note that Laura's favorite horse was with her to meet Spencer!)
