So I had a baby ...

So I had a baby two weeks ago. I can't believe that it's been two weeks but there is it. She is 2 weeks old and absolutely perfect. She came via scheduled c-section so there was no surprise. When the doctor pulled her out he exclaimed "Look at those cheeks!" and then "look at the size of her chest!" and the whole time I'm thinking that I would like to see those cheeks. She was crying like a mad girl and then they bought her to me and she had the chubbiest chipmunk cheeks and she stopped crying when I talked to her and it was great. I was crying a little because she was finally here in this world and I finally finally got to see her. And it was no wonder I was in pain because she was 8 lbs. 8 oz. and 19 3/4" long. A big baby for little me.

So far so good with her. She is a good sleeper, a great nurser, and just so sweet. Bub seems to really like her and wants to hold her a lot and gives her kisses. The little dog could care less but the big dog worries over her. He reminds me of Nanny from Peter Pan. It is an adjustment having a newborn baby in the house again but she is an easy baby and very content so it hasn't been as difficult as I feared. I'm enjoying being a mother of two so far.
