Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!! Yay!!!! :D
Here name: Ana Karisa (pronounced A-nah Ka-ree-sah
Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM
Weight: 7'2 oz 19 inches
Beautiful little girl.
Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day.
(Ana about 5 minutes old)
(Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)
(Coming home!! 1 1/2 days old)
We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep. I really haven't slept since last Saturday. She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk. I've been nursing around the clock. Almost every hour. I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible. I am showing signs today of it coming in. She is not so fussy and more content.
It is so easy to forget about those newborn days. It doesn't matter how many babies you have had in the past, it is always so different with each one. When you think you have it mastered, whoa, look out!! Each little one has his or her own personality you have to work with. So amazing.
Everyone in our home is so happy she is here--Healthy, whole, and beautiful!! Her brothers and sisters (especially) love holding her.
Till later, blessings to you all,
PS: Thanks to my Dad and Jennifer who sent posts via comments while I was in the hospital.
