how wonderful life is when you're in the world

Robert Sawyer Carmack IV
Born Feb 23 at 8:40 pm.
8 pounds.
20 3/4 inches.

i don't really know
how to tell you
how incredibly
hard, terrifying,
amazing, exhausting
and wonderful
the last few days have been.
if you've become a parent,
then you know.

but i am so
blessed beyond
what i can ever hope
to understand.
my little family
is healthy and home
and i'm so grateful
for all the family and friends
who have showered us with
love and generosity since
sawyer's arrival.

i am a very lucky girl
