Welcome to this world, Sean!

November 24. Around noon I arrived at Cascais Hospital with painful contractions and made another CTG. The obstetrician said the labor hadn't started, so I went back home... unfortunately the pains went on every ten minutes like clockwork. I managed to have lunch and and be a bit around, but I couldn't finish the bags + pillows I was creating for our wonderful clients and friends. (You know me, even in these intense moments I was still thinking about kittn...)

At night I went back to the hospital, where I stayed until morning. The contractions went on all night, it was terrible. At 9.30 am I was taken to the delivery room. Everyone was professional and cool + they talked to me all the time... I was a bit scared, but I haven't realized when I heard  já está. The radio played Don't stop me now by Queen. Then it took forever until I heard his voice! Actually it was more like a very tender cry, two times and then another eternity until our eyes met for the first time.

It was a unique magic moment that I will never forget. I fell in love at first sight, even if I already loved him. Thank you for existing, Sean!

Later edit: A million thanks you all our friends who give blessings + good vibes here, on our Facebook page and everywhere: we are all connected, we are one big family!

Welcome to the world, Sean! It's a weird place sometimes, but you'll find it fascinating. And by the way, I love your name...very kittenish.
Hugs and congratulations to you two proud parents as well. May Sean fill your lives with joy and happiness.
All the best!
