I had very vivid first thoughts and it is interesting to think of them now that my kids are older. Someone else has a thread about your first thoughts when you went into labor and it made me think about this question. I'm ready for something lighter and not so controversial! What was the very first thing you thought/said when you looked at your newborn? I have 4 and I thought:
First girl: "Is she alive? Is it really a girl? Good, get her away from me and let me sleep!!"
(21 hours of back labor, forceps delivery, huge amount of cutting/tearing, thought I was going to die)
Second girl: "Oh, my gosh! Look at her long fingers! I think she's going to be a pianist!"
(She is, actually, and a violinist too)
Third girl: "Wow. She looks like a really cute BOY."
(she seriously did)
Fourth Child, Boy: "He is so tiny and sweet! Now unstrap me from this stupid table and let me nurse him!"
(he weighed almost a pound less than my previous child and I had a c-section)
How about you?
