Finally, after a very frustrating two weeks, my little girl is here! We welcomed her into the world at 4:20 pm on Sunday, December 15th. She was 3 days late (my son was 4 days late, so I've now learned my lesson about expecting them to come early), but definitely messed with my head for two weeks before deciding to come. I started having contractions on the 6th; they were 20 minutes apart for a straight 10 hours - despite me doing a TON of walking to try to get them closer together. Then they just disappeared; only to reappear a few days later. So when my water broke at 6 am on Sunday, I was OVERJOYED. (I had an induction scheduled for the 19th and was thrilled that I didn't have to go that route.)
She is perfect, and letting me get plenty of rest. She only really cries when we change her diaper. We're all just completely besotted with her - especially her big brother, Lincoln. =) I had my best friend do birth photography this time around (I really wanted her there to do birth photography with my son, but the weather was so awful that she couldn't make the drive), so I've included the link to the album.
Maeve Cordelia "Mae" (although, lately, I've taken to calling her "Mouse" due to all the squeaky sounds she makes)
7 lbs, 2 oz
19 inches long
Born 4:20 pm 12.15.13
(And my bestie is coming tomorrow to do her newborn shoot, so I'll probably be back posting a picture of her birth announcement in a few days.)
