24 Hours

This picture was taken almost exactly 24 hours before we met our Jocelyn.
It's kind of amazing all that can change in just 24 hours isn't it:)

In 24 hours you can become a mom.
In 24 hours you can feel terrified. I mean so so terrified.
In 24 hours you can be braver than you thought you were capable.
In 24 hours you can feel so much love that it might just start shooting out of your fingertips.
In 24 hours your hoo has can swell to roughly the size of watermelons....this is for another post entirely. Breast feeding you guys, WOAH.
In 24 hours we met our little girl, and it was just like I thought it would be. I looked at her and she looked at me and we already knew each other and I realized that I needed her just as much as she needed me in that moment.
