Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA lately - we welcomed our daughter shortly before the holiday and life has been a whirlwind ever since!
Laila Grace arrived at 11:12AM on 12/14, so is three weeks old today and doing wonderful! She is an absolute joy and I could never have imagined how amazing it is to be a parent! She was a little peanut at birth (6lbs, 11 oz and 20.5 inches at nine days late!), but had her 3-week well baby check up this morning and has gained a full pound and grew half an inch! She's such a good baby and we are completely in love with her.
We had a really challenging birth experience (will type up the full birth story soon!) that ended with Laila spending 2 days in the NICU (I spiked a fever during my 31 hour labor, and they suspected uterine infection, so the NICU stay was standard procedure in this instance), but we both made it through healthy and well, and have both recovered nicely too!
Pics to come - was so excited to pop back in and see all these precious little babies! Hoping everyone had an extra special holiday this year and is doing well with their newborns!
