We're Home!!


After what seems like an eternity, we have finally brought home our beautiful baby girl. We couldn't be more thrilled. It's like she has completed our family - she just fits right in, so naturally.

The surgery went well. Better than expected; far better than with SP. The recovery was LEAGUES better. And my 3 day vacation was fabulous! I couldn't say anything better about Lakeview Hospital. It was the most fantastic experience. And every single nurse and other person that saw to our care was terrific!

My little girl was 7 lbs 6 oz and 20" long. She has such darker skin than SP and dark hair vs. SP's blonde. Weird. She's a GREAT nurser already and takes her binky really well. She's just cute as a button and we are IN LOVE! SP is showing signs of jealousy but she's also very intrigued too. She wants to help so much; we're lucky to have her.

Anyway, thanks for all your thoughts and emails about what was happening with us. We're all doing great and happy to be home!

I am completely THRILLED for you guys. She IS cute as a button. She looks so tiny. Congrats! I'm so happy to hear that all went well and that you are already, as expected, a family IN LOVE. Can't wait to hold her and smell that fabulous baby scent. Keep recovering and may sleep be yours.

GORGEOUS!!!! She is SO GORGEOUS!!! Congrats. As for SP, maybe you could surprise her with a little something from 2nd child.

I had read while prego with Ty, that if you give your first a gift from the 2nd, it can sometimes help with the transition. We got Emma a build-a-bear from tyler and vise versa... has emma give baby something from her. Just a thought.

She is just beautiful! Congratulations! I found that I recovered much quicker after the second baby as well. My second one had really dark hair when she was born compared to her sister who had very light blond hair. Now they are both blond.
