Emma Grace

Well...we're home! We got to bring our baby girl home on Tuesday - she was 2 days old!! Life has certainly changed for us, but it's wonderful! She is so beautiful!!!!

She had a hard time getting here, though. We were one push away from a c-section, but on the last attempt she made it here! I was so thankful! Michael was so wonderful during delivery. He was such an amazing support for me. I rknow I couldn't have done it without him. He's being a amazing daddy, too! My mother was in there with us as well and she really helped me stay calm & get through it all, too. She actually used to work L&D when she was nursing. She was so proud of all of us!

Emma is really a good baby - she can sleep through anything!! We've had all kinds of company & the TV going and everything and she just sleeps away! Being three weeks early she missed out on the last few weeks of sleeping and growing in the womb so I guess she is making up for it now!

I am doing pretty well, too. I have a lot of healing to do, but I am feeling better every day. Luckily I have lots maternity leave so I'll have plenty of time to heal!

She has had to go out to the doctor a couple times since she got home - she was a little jaundice and they wanted to do some tests on her. Luckily today was the last day she had to go, though - we just got news from the doctor that everything is looking good! She even got to go to her first birthday party today - our neighbor's little boy turned one year old today. I was hesitant about taking her over, but we only stayed a little while and she slept the whole time! Since it was just next door we decided it was alright.

Our neighbor on the other side had her baby on Wednesday, too. I think they came home today. I haven't seen her, but I've seen a lot of coming and going in their house. We're going to give her a couple of days before we go visit. She did have a c-section so I know she needs more time to recoup than me.

Thanks to everyone for all the support & well wishes! We're so lucky to have her!

  4. Hanna, She is adorable!! Congrats!

  5. I still can't believe your neighbor had a baby so close to Emma's birth. There was definitely something in the water in your area last spring!

    She is SO precious. You & Michael are going to be the most wonderful parents too - you can tell that already! :D

  6. She is so cute!! I'm glad everything is going well. Please call the next time you visit Uncle Steven and aunt Jamie we would love to see her.
