Introducing....


On Thursday, August 16, at 9:37 in the morning, this sweet love was born. 

Her birthday story is a little complicated. I plan on writing the whole thing out with details soon. When that day comes, I will add it to the blog so those of you who want to can read it. I have a feeling it will be nothing short of a novel because...

I was in labor for 32 hours. 

32 long hours before I met my baby girl.


I usually get blank stares from other women when I tell them that. Their jaw usually hits the floor.
Apparently 32 hours is a really long time when you are talking about things like road trips, plane rides.... 
oh, and BEING IN LABOR. 

After a very long and difficult labor, an (almost) emergency c-section, 4 nights & 5 days in the hospital, we brought this miracle home.


I still can't believe she's OURS some days.


Being a new mommy definitely has a learning curve all of its own. 

Breastfeeding.
Swaddling.
Diapers.
More diapers.
Marathon feeding. 
Baths.
Crying. 
Screaming.
Rocking. 
Bouncing. 
Constant white noise. 
Swinging.

And that's just learning how to take care of a newborn baby!
You also have to learn how to manage some time (even if it's just a few minutes) for yourself!

But isn't she sweet.


Thanks for letting me brag on her a bit.
