I think I'm on more pins and needles waiting for pics and the birth story than I was waiting for LO to be born.
I hope everything is going super well with you right now.
Can't wait to see pics and hear how it went. You seemed so calm beforehand - it was inspirational. I'm looking forward to your birth story is just as inspirational as your pregnancy.
Hi, Friends! Thank you again for all your love & support!
Just popping in really quick while I can steal a minute. I'm sorry to have worried you--I lost track of days and haven't even unpacked my laptop yet! (I'm on DH's.) I don't have a good computer chair for NAK so I haven't been up to multitasking...and you know how the early days are...
Everything is going very well! The birth was fine, not what I hoped for but what can ya do, right? I'll write it up & post soon. I did not hemorrhage at all--they were ready for it but my body did what it was supposed to do (at least in that regard.) I also didn't tear this time either! I can't tell you how happy I am to report that. 2 big babies and not a tear. Dang, I'm good!
Adeline is a very sweet baby, she is sleeping a good 5-6hr stretch from midnight to 6ish. Let's pretend it will last. She's an avid nurser like Lidia was, but unlike Lidia she spits! It's probably because I have SO MUCH MILK--I've never been this huge in my life. So far she's a happy spitter, though, so besides the mess it's no biggie.
We haven't even uploaded any pics yet except a couple we took w/our phones. Here she is at 21hrs old. She has white-blonde eyebrows and light strawberry hair, is more fair than Lidia, and has a totally different nose...
YEAH!!! So glad to hear and update from you. So glad everything is going well and good for you for not worrying about multitasking! WTG on no tearing!
She is absolutely gorgeous! So sweet and precious!
I have to tell you that i had never heard of the song Sweet Adeline before and of course someone on the radio mentioned it the other day! I love those little coincidences.
Keep up the great work mama! I can't wait to hear the birthstory!

Colleen, Lidia is doing very well. I'm glad to hear Lucy is too! Abby is soooo cute!! Lidia talks about Baby Adeline all the time and likes to give her kisses. She is also very protective and only wants mommy to hold the baby. We spent the past 5mos reading books about being a Big Sister, and I know they helped a lot to prepare her. We know them by heart now so we often use phrasing from the book so it's familiar to her: "Baby's lucky to have a big sister who helps!" etc. The only times she gets upset is when we use something of hers for the baby, like the first time we used the travel system stroller Lidia got so jealous until we explained that it was for babies and she had a new, better stroller.
