She's here!



Well, I figured it was about time to introduce the reason I never sleep any more. She was born on August 30th at 10:11 in the morning. I was scheduled to be induced, but went into labor on my own. Labor was a whopping 4 1/2 hours. I pushed for literally only two minutes before she was born. So far, she's been the sweetest baby. And this has been my best recovery ever. I'm already down 20 lbs from my delivery weight and it's only been 2 weeks. I might actually get to my pre-first born weight. I haven't seen that in 6 years. (Only about 10 lbs. to go!)

Any way, she's here and we're all happy, if exhausted. Sometime in the not too distant future, I may return to regular writing and blogging. The two boys are in kindergarten and preschool in the mornings, so if I am caught up on everything else, that might be my new writing time. Yay!

She's beautiful, Kayeleen, and I'm not just saying that. Thanks for sharing this little bit of her with us:) And I'm happy to hear everything went well. I've been meaning to e-mail you, but I haven't wanted to give you one more thing to do. Those first few weeks are always a big adjustment!

Gorgeous! Yay for new babies! (I had mine July 20th)

I too am actively working to drop this baby weight- sounds like you’re off to a great start! :-)
