Our Valentine

With love, we welcomed our new son on Valentine's Day.

Photobucket

Dashel Omar Hampton

We call him Dash.
*Omar is after Dash's grandpa (Brian Omar) and Brett's Great Grandpa Omar

A hearty 8 lb. 6 oz. and 21 inches long

I am a mess of exhaustion and post birth emotions--completely in love and feeling grateful and ultra aware of how sweet this gift is...welcoming life.  I'm not very good with words right now.  So I'll wait.

I want to go back and relive the last few days again and again.  And since I can't do that, I will savor the seconds of the present.  His chubby cheeks; his baby-hogging sisters who gently nurture him and ask to hold him every second of every day; his daddy's love gazes; middle-of-the-night feedings where even through exhaustion, my soul intertwines with his; saying "my son"; kissing his cold nose; melding my love for each of my children and each of their birth stories; knowing that these first days are precious and fleeting and that someday I will be far removed from newborns and *pinch myself* moments of mamahood bliss.  But right now it's here.  And I feel so grateful for this gift.


We're busy stockpiling love.

Shannon Dew said...

Congratulations! What a sweet lil guy.

Vicki said...

So excited to check the blog this morning to see the news! He is such a baby doll! The love comes through in each and every picture. Congratulations Hampton Family!

Jessica Lawson said...

Congrats Kelle! (And family!) As I gave birth to my son 3 months ago my mind replayed the births of my other children too and realized the same sentiment you did; how we will once be far removed. It's bittersweet especially for me knowing it was definitely my last. Enjoy these days, I know you know this, they go so quick. He is adorable and I love that name. Your girls are going to be one of the best parts to watch. My older four (2 girls and 2 boys, in that order) are 9,7 ,6 and 5 and I STILL have to fight for time with the baby! The older girls practically fight me to take care of him. It's been a blessing breast feeding because that's the time I get him back!! Haha enjoy enjoy!! Love to you all from a long time reader! Jessica

You can't have too many congratulations, right? Super-photocredit goes to the person who captured that first tearful kiss. Priceless!

The moment when Dashel first years the Rudolph song, and thinks that he is a reindeer.. that's going to be awesome. :) Lovely name.

Lisa M. said...

{Jessica} said...

Kelle and family: Congratulations on a perfect little Valentine's baby! I was so thrilled to get on the blog this morning and see that Dash had arrived safe and sound. My new favorite picture of yours, hands-down, is the one of you holding your son with the tear streaming down your cheek. That picture is truly worth 1,000 words. Enjoy these next few weeks! Can't wait to follow along in this new journey with you and the rest of your family:)

Brooke Penny said...

thatmoxiegirl said...

Congratulations, Hampton Family! What a handsome little man you have there. I adore his name. I know you are tired, but make sure to write his birth story and immortalize it on the internet. He may now be your first, and he may not be your special Nella's birth, but he is unique and needs to feel special too. Enjoy the snuggles!

Jennifer Good said...

I know you probably will not see/read this because you have so many beautiful children to tend to, but I just wanted to say I adore you and your children. I picked up your book when it came out and I adored it. I adore reading your blog and seeing your photos and I just wanted to say your kids are just so freaking great. Seeing your posts gives me hope about if I someday have children myself.

Jacki said...

Janita said...

Congratulations, Hamptom family! We're over the moon for you! Give that precious boy a squeeze from us, will ya? My friend shared this poem with us after our first son was born. There's just something about a boy, isn't there? Thought you'd enjoy. xo

BECOMING A BOY

"Remembrance finds a Sunday when
the late afternoon sun continually dissolves in cloud and reappears
east of one o’clock. He is doing nothing. On his belly watching red
ants scurry. On his back to see a hawk disappear in the sun. At the creek to scoop and drop handfuls of minnows. Not aware his new clothes are hand-me-downs. Not aware he is alone. Not thinking anything. This is the afternoon the fox steps from tall grass, gazes at him, then prances off.
And the bluegreen dragonflies helicopter in the bulrushes while the Vs from two slow muskrats touch and lazily overlap. All the trivial sensations sliding down the sides of memory into this day. A wheat grass stem sucked white tasting of wind and heat and dust. None of it is going anywhere. He isn’t going anywhere. The day repeating itself and the boy becoming a boy into dazzling blue infinity." Gary Hyland

I love when pictures leave your heart feeling like you're right there in the room ... I can almost smell the baby powder and new baby scent. Almost feel the sweet new baby clothes washed for the first (and probably only) time in Dreft laundry soap. Hear the oohs, ahhs, and unmistakeable brand new infant cry. It's so special. Thank you for sharing. :) welcome baby Dash!!

Congratulations! I am so happy for all of you. 22 years ago on Valentine's Day I brought home my last of four babies, Harrison Christopher. As I look at your sweet son, I remember all the joy and wonderment all over again. At 22, he continues to bring me great joy. My best to you and all your family!

Congratulations to all of you! What a handsome little boy he is. And just look at the love on Brett's face in the picture where he's holding Dash. Cute name, too! And born on Valentine's Day! So much for me to say.

I've been a fan of your blog since reading your insanely beautiful book last year. Someday I'll get around to telling you what your book meant to me (it reached me at a low point, reproductively speaking, and I needed a good talking to). For now I had to delurk to send my sincerest congratulations and best wishes on the arrival of sweet baby Dash. May you relish every joy of the coming minutes and days. I want it to play in slow motion for you, like one of those late summer days that goes on and on and on....
