It's A Girl!

I have some big news that I’ve been meaning to share; my husband and I have a little girl!  She came last month and earlier than expected, but thankfully she’s perfectly healthy and doing wonderfully well.  We couldn’t be happier and more excited.  It’s truly a miracle given my health issues and a very high risk, complicated pregnancy that we’ve been blessed with this little baby and are now a family!

Life has a whole new rhythm.  Feedings, diaper changes, and tons of hugs, kisses, and snuggles are what make up my days and nights. We’ve been lucky to have lots of support from family, but this is a whole new kind of work.   Like many first time moms, I’ve got lots to learn and everything is new to me.  And of course, I’ve got the added challenge of trying to figure out how to take care of myself and keep my health stable so I can take care of her.   When do I fit in rest, putting in eye drops, eye soaks, keeping my medicine organized, doctors appointments? I know this will be an ongoing process, but for now I’m just basking in being a new mommy and doing the best I can with our little one.

I'll try to keep posting when I can, like right now--when she’s peacefully napping, but I just had to share our joy with all of my wonderful readers!
