How was your Thanksgiving weekend? Mine was one we’ll never forget!
Introducing: our Little Turkey
- Born Thanksgiving Evening at 10:14pm
- 8lbs 5oz, 20 1/2” long
- Delivered via a successful VBAC
It’s a girl :)
We were at the dinner table, and I made the mistake of asking for seconds on mashed potatoes and gravy, because as soon as I swallowed- POP! My sister told me to stand up just to make sure it wasn’t a bladder issue, and gee, my pants have never been wet that fast. Then, of course, every family member present at dinner had to come running into the room to see me and my wet pants. Awesome.
At 6pm we pulled up to the hospital, and 4 hours later we had her in our arms!
She wormed her way into our hearts in seconds.
And she even hung out with me on the couch with the rest of our little growing family decorated for Christmas. We’re pals.
Today my sister came over and took some newborn shots. I think this is the only one I snapped where she is sleeping- she is quite alert and awake during the day. But then again, what kind of habits can I count on 5 days into it? Ya know?
So while I am resting up (I have a concert this weekend I’m trying to conserve energy for… I know I am crazy) and enjoying my time with this little Turkey, I’ll be sporadically in and out. See you soon!
