A week already?!

I know I've left people hanging since last Friday's post - clearly, I've been busy adjusting to life as a mom (I'm actually a mom! SO. WEIRD.) but it would have been nice to leave a "We're all alive and well!" update here for folks. A girl shouldn't mention the NICU and leave it at that.

So here it is: We're all alive and well!

Day 3 of parenthood! I still look incredibly puffy.

There's a story to be told, of course, for those who want to know how the c-section went, why she was in the NICU, and all the stuff in between. I found such first-person accounts incredibly helpful (and reassuring) when I was pregnant, and I hope to pay that forward. That post will be coming later.

In the meantime, B and I are a little sleep-deprived and a LOT happy. She's here, and everyone is safe and healthy.


  1. Congrats! I love the "oooo" face :D

  2. Your daughter is gorgeous, and she looks just like you!! (Thus making you gorgeous, too. :) ) I am so glad the three of you are having fun and adjusting, and these pictures made my day. (So did your email.) Hugs to you all, and especially to that little baby.

  3. She is beautiful! Caleb is looking with me and he thinks she's a complete cutie!

  4. Congrats, Mama!!! She is Beautiful!!! :-) xo

  5. Congratulations!! She is gorgeous indeed. I'm so happy for you guys! :D

  6. She is beautiful!!! I'm glad to hear everything is going well. :) Enjoy your new life!
