Hi Ladies! xp

Just checking in while I have a minute...I can tell life with 2 is going to be a little bit crazy.

I am so tired! I've had 2 hours of sleep since Tuesday when I woke at 445am. I know my lack of sleep is just beginning. Wink Dh is home today and tomorrow helping me out, but he has to work on Saturday as of now. He's been a great helper so far. Everything with the labor and delivery and recovery went as well as it possibly could have. She came super fast, which was surprising because with Miles I had to push for 3 hours! I pushed for 9 minutes -- 3 contractions and she was out! And...not a single tear. I feel great besides the lack of sleep! We were able to come home yesterday after just 24 hours - I was dying to get home to Miles!

Miles is LOVING his sister. He's being a great helper so far.

My milk came in this morning and Vivi is loving it. She's been a pro nurser from the start which has been awesome! We have to go back to the birthing center tomorrow. They forgot to take her cord clamp off before we left, and apparently you need a special tool to get it off.

I'll try to post a few pictures later tonight or tomorrow and play catch up, but a certain little somebody is calling me right now. Wink

Aside from the lack of sleep that all sounds great! I'm so happy for you that everything went so well. And only 24 hours at the hospital - wow! That's great. I am hoping for 4 days, LOL.

I can't wait to hear more about her and see more pictures. I love all that blonde hair.

You think you could have her get in touch with Kara about coming early like she did? Wink

Congrats again, Ashley. I just saw the pics on FB, so cute.

I'm happy to hear that everything went, and is going, so well - yay! I love her name, and Vivi - is that your nickname for her? - is adorable too. Hope you figure out how to get some rest in between everything. Can family come by to help you out a bit during the first few weeks?
