Our precious baby, Hannah Rose Magee, arrived on October 8, 2014 at 10:38 PM. She is the sweetest, most beautiful baby. Being her mom is even more precious than I imagined. She is truly a gift.
Eric and I had a devastating introduction to parenthood last October. Over the last year, the outpouring of love and support has been astounding. It’s hard to stay stuck in a dark place when you can feel the warm embrace of so many people who love you and want something better for you. It means so much. Hannah is already so loved, by so many. We are thankful to have such amazing people in our lives, who care so much. I wanted to share some of the beautiful gifts Hannah has received because they are just so awesome!
The doctors and nurses that we have met along the way have been nothing short of extraordinary. We have had so much medical attention during this pregnancy that it’s hard not to build relationships with the medical staff that had been treating me. I cannot say enough about the staff at the Atrius Health Women’s Center and the South Shore Hospital. It truly felt like everyone was rooting for us, and hoping for a different outcome this time around.
When we arrived at the birthing unit to deliver Hannah, we were greeted by the same nurse that admitted us when we were pregnant with the twins. She had prepared something special for Hannah, the hat pictured above. She came to visit us in the maternity ward once Hannah had arrived too. Dr. Hamar, the Maternal Fetal Medicine doctor who cared for me during my pregnancy, came to visit me too. And I received a sweet note from Linda, one of the nurses in the Maternal Special Care unit, that cared for me a year ago when I was admitted into the hospital, pregnant with Thomas and James. These people, and so many more, have left such a fond impression in my heart. I am grateful that I was lucky enough to be treated by so many kind people.
Watching Eric with his little princess has been one of the best parts of becoming a parent. He loves her so much, and it makes me love him even more than I already did. We are loving every second of parenthood….even the difficult ones. Being Hannah’s Mom and Dad is the best thing ever. It’s been a tough road to get here, but she is so worth it!
