My little peanut
Emily Madison was born Wednesday July 20th at 8:47am. I was exactly 38 weeks pregnant and didn’t realize that when I took last weeks picture for my 38 week bump update, it would be my last.
My water broke that night and she entered our world 8 quick hours later.
She’s a teeny tiny peanut only weighing 5lbs 12 oz and 18” long, but she is perfect! She lost a few ounces of course, but nothing to be worried about. She fits perfectly into preemie clothes of which I had none on hand. Luckily people love to buy baby clothes and the smaller the cuter so one visit from my family and we’re covered for a while.
We are all doing really great here. Caring for a newborn is pretty simple. Nursing on the other hand is HARD. Emotionally and physically. But we are getting better at it and am hopeful in a couple more weeks it will begin to feel less like a full time job that I’m under qualified for.
No promises as to when I’ll be back to update for a while. I’m really enjoying living in my little cave with my new family!
