The miracle of birth
On 1/2/06 I was able to watch my step-sister give birth to her beautiful new son, Donovan Joseph Cicero. I was so honored that she let me be a part of her delivery. It was amazing to see how Mother Nature had birthing intended; it sure is a much better experience than I went through.
Whitney’s labor was actually quite quick (this was her 2nd child), and with about 6 pushes little DJ came into the world. Hearing his first cry was something that I never got to hear with my little ones, it brought tears to my eyes. The miracle of birth is just that an absolute miracle.
If you would like to see pictures of the little guy, here is Donovan. It’s amazing to me how “big” he is, at 7 pounds, he likes like a giant to me.
Whitney delivered at CPMC, where Kaitlyn is. It was nice having the whole family there to see both babies. Remember that my due date was 2 days after Whitney’s, so our cousins are the same age (even though Kaitlyn was born 3 months earlier). It was nice going
She has been taking some of her bottles lately (not the whole feed, which means she still has to be gavaged), but this is good news at least.
