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.

He's a beautiful gift.

He's your biggest baby by far. So handsome.

Thank you for sharing pictures of him and your special moments with us. My ovaries are aching. I miss those moments of tight-fisted arms, curled legs, little grunts, perfect little fingernails, diaper changes and feedings.

Sleep my dear, sleep…

Larissa Jade Gray said...

*Cluck cluck cluck* Ooh he makes me want another baby, and my youngest is just 6 months old! I'm going to go give her super cuddles and smell her head, because she is already growing way too fast.

Hugest congratulations, he is perfect. I can't wait to read all about his birth and about this new phase of your lives.

I've been reading since Nella's birth went viral, and you inspire me so much.

With love, from Larissa in Melbourne Australia, and daughters Baylee (aged 4) and baby Madeline <3

Doro Allen said...

Oh this brought tears to my eyes....I started reading your book that my sister gave to me a few weeks ago and I am so in love with you and your family. I began to read your blog from the very beginning and I have never read anything more beautiful and optimistic and life embracing than your words. I am a mother of three myself, two wonderful daughters and on Dec 4 our son was born. Congratulations on Dash, he is so beautiful. It's indeed an amazing feeling to use the words 'my son' and I love it.
Greetings from the cold and snowy Germany ( I am German) and tons of love from my family to yours.

Jaclyn Hicks said...

We welcomed my son a year ago on Valentine's Day. Let me tell you, nothing tops it.

We welcomed him here at home, and it was absolutely perfect. Your little man is too sweet. There is something about that newborn shlump, the squishy little bodies. A time of true bliss.

Continued prayers for health and happiness.

Leanna said...

Welcome to the world, Dash!
Congratulations to the Hampton family.

bforaker said...

Welcome home sweet baby Dash. <3 What a sweet sweet gift you have all been given...how glorious that it all revealed itself on Valentine's Day! I am so thrilled for all of you. :)

My first baby was born 20 years ago (which is just plain weird and heard to believe!) -- I wanted to share with you this quote I wrote in my journal to him all those years ago. I hope it touches your heart:

"In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people existing only for each other."

Hoping you enjoy this magical closed circle...your baby is beautiful...Lainey's adoration sublime and Nella's big sister vibe, the best. Congratulations! ~Beth (and family of four darling kids ages 20-6 and one great husband!)

bforaker said...

Oh! Want to give credit for the quote: Anne Morrow Lindbergh...one beautiful mother.

Bless by Tone said...

Congratulations! He is so beautiful. May God bless his life and the rest of the family!

Alisha said...

That was my thought exactly after my son was born almost three months ago- that I could go back and live it over and over again. Words cannot explain the emotions that were in that day after experiencing my sweet daughter's birth nearly 5 years before.

I am so happy for you and your family. I am also appreciative that you so willingly share your thoughts and beautiful children with us. Thank you Kelle, and congratulations are your sweet Dash!

Raelyn said...

Kelle....
Did you write that Dash was born on Valentine's Day?! Score!! I called it!! I called it!! ;-D
Dashel Omar....
Welcome to the Hampton family, where, it is so fitting that you would be born on a holiday when our world celebrates love. Because. In your little world with your family, you will be so, so, so loved!! ;)
Congrats, Brett, Kelle, Lainey, Nella, Brandyn and Austyn.... He is so handsome!! ;-D

CONGRATULATIONS, Kelle! He is absolutely perfect.

I fell in love with your blog when I read Nella's birth story. And I have to tell you I had a milestone reading the words in this post that you wrote about Dash. At 26, it is the first time that I read something that resonated with me and made me think, "I want that." It may seem something small to you, but ever since coming into 'adulthood', I've struggled with whether I really have that maternal gene. And strangely, something clicked to me while looking at these pictures and reading these words. I really look forward to reading Dash's birth story once you have the strength to get it all on paper! xoxo.

soniaCottarelli said...

Congratulation to this beautiful family!!!!! You are welcome Dash!!!!!!

Kelly Cach said...

This is one of those times when I have to say with the utmost respect, "Oh, my GOD!" He is so beautiful!!! The most perfect baby boy lips I've ever seen! And I love the tear streaming down your face...beautiful capture by someone.

I remember after my Eli was born, my Gabe walked in the room and I SWORE his head had grown over night...huge head! Nella's head doesn't look huge, but she DOES look suddenly grown up :)

Congrats, Kelle, and so much love to you!

Congratulations! I love the proud look on Lainey's face as she's holding her little brother. So sweet.

And my firstborn, whom we were told we would never have on our own, was born the day after Valentine's Day 24 years ago. It's a special time of the year for us. Hearts full of love. (We have three children now and two granddaughters!)

I am anxiously awaiting the birth story and more pictures. Blessings to you and your precious family, Kelle.

Stephanie said...

Oh your sweet dash is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your pregnancy and birth...reminding me of those fleeting, between-two-worlds moments surrounding birth.
