Congrats Rebecca!! I'm beyond thrilled for you! I know I'm a little tardy on the congrats but since I'm out of town, I know you understand. He's gorgeous and I agree -- I can't believe how wonderful you look after having just given birth!! Glad things are going well with Ella -- I'm sure that makes it easier!
Rest up and enjoy your extended family! Post when you can!!

He is so beautiful and so are you! You don't look like you have just given birth -- you look like you just came off of a cruise ship or something. You're gorgeous! That is an adorable story about Ella sharing her "booboo" with her brother. I'm sure Gabe appreciates it too. Ella looks like she is being a good little mini mommy to Gabe. Congrats again!
Ahhhh, so cute hun! Your kids are super duper cute and I love the little story about Ella shareing
Congrats. You did such a great job and your LO's are so cute.
he is precious and you look stunning ing those pics! it's just not fair! congratulations again. can't wait for your birth story
I went to bed early last night and although Gabe was up to eat 4 times, I feel like I got a great night's sleep! I'm feeling so wonderful in comparison to my section recovery. I really can't believe how different it is. I've even been expecting some baby blues, but nothing yet! Not even an episode of irrational crying (which I'm totally entitled to if I like.. heehee).
When I brought Gabe to my chest as he was born, the t-shirt I was wearing obviously got covered in all of the wonderful fluids of birth . Someone packed it in a plastic belongings bag for me afterward and it sat in that same bag in the laundry basket until yesterday. I was going to throw it out but decided I am quite attached to that shirt now! I washed it yesterday and when I took it out of the washing machine I have to say I was a little disappointed. All of the stains came out of it! Darn tide...
ETA: as a side note, I'm about halfway through writing my birth story!

Oooo I can't wait to read it!! I imagaine the shirt will be one you'll hang on to for a long time (or forever if your like me). I wish my laundry soap was that good with stains, though I think I'd need a better washer in all fairness to the soap! I'm so glad your feeling well and getting some sleep, keep takeing care of your self and update more as you can. How is Ella doing?
I'm glad you kept the tee. Can't wait to hear the full story! and yay for a good night's sleep!
