I am SO HAPPY to announce my little man is FINALLY here!

Corbin Bruner Collie.

Born naturally on February 9, 2018 at 1:55 p.m.

Eight days past our due date.

After a twelve hour labor at the birthing center, with seven hours of contractions going on at home before that.

Over ninety minutes of push time.

Weighing nine pounds exact, being twenty inches long.

My heart has never felt so full before in my life.

Of course people said becoming a mom is incredible and the love you have for your child is one like no other, but those words sound small compared to how great of a feeling it truly is.

To go through so much pain to gain one of God’s greatest gifts, it makes my heart feel like it is going to explode out of my chest. 

It is indescribable.

Something you have to experience for yourself to fully grasp it.

That being said, we are doing wonderful at home.

We were released from the birthing center around nine later that night and made it home by ten to spend our first night with our baby at home.

I am planning to sit down sometime in the near future to share my full birth story with all who would like to read it, it just may be another week or so.

We have enjoyed our first two weeks of life together to the fullest.

We spend our time with lots of snuggles and many of forehead kisses, so I appreciate you all keeping up with us and giving us space to just enjoy this new chapter in our lives.

Thank you all for the love, support, and prayers you have given us.
