I have honestly tried to sit down and write my birthing story just about daily for 4 weeks. Obviously that hasn’t happened! And to be honest it’s not going to happen in depth today because she is going to wake up to eat any second.
So for now … Our precious baby girl R was born by c-section on 11/4 (I was 39 weeks). She was 10lbs 4oz of love, and 21.5 inches long. It seems like her birth weight was a bit inflated from the IV fluids I was getting because it took her about 3 weeks to get back to her birth weight even though she was eating well.
I have about a million things to say about her (and I really want to record this early development stuff because you just know I’ll forget it all by tomorrow) and I have so much to say about breastfeeding and how hard it was for us to get started. But those things will wait. For now… some pictures of our sweet R, who will be 4 weeks old tomorrow!
