I am so sorry it has taken me so long but I have to use the computer to upload pictures. I have only had enough time to squeeze a few minutes in on my phone here and there. Here is our beautiful little girl Hope Aria! Also this is me one week post-partum. Gotta keep myself accountable and hopefully I will be back in shape quickly. She was born May 27th at 12:54 pm. She weighed 6'13 and was 19 1/2 inches long. Labor went quick. They started pictocin at 7 am and I was at a 2. Broke my water when I hit a 5 at 11:50 am and I had her an hour later. Only had to push for 10 minutes. No tearing or stitches. But I did get a dose of Nubain (sp) in my IV to help cope with the back labor. She is the sweetest, most content little girl ever! Great sleeper and eater. Can't wait for her to put on a little weight though so all her clothes aren't eating her. LOL! I am so in love. :) Also here is a picture of all of us.

Congrats! She's beautiful! I definitely see what you mean about size, but that'll come in time. I know first time around I was paranoid so often about her growth because my daughter was small. This time with DD2, she's bigger than the first kid, but still a petite thing. It seems I just produce midgets. I think being in the pioneer phase is always the hardest, maybe moreso when the parenthood experience has a smaller sample size to go by (I don't know. I only have 2 currently, G-d willing there may be more in the future). Trying to get used to a new person was challenging for me. I remember feeling flustered with infant cries those first several weeks home from the hospital each time and DH impatiently asking me what was wrong/ what they meant and I'd retort "How should I know?" His answer, "You're the mom" wasn't particularly helpful or appreciated then. However I realized, I may be the mom, but that person is still a stranger to me. If I was somehow supposed to have an insider edge on knowing who that new being was I think it merited consideration that my intuition sucked and both times I thought I was having a boy. So where exactly were the superpowers/ instincts that were supposed to help me interpret these newborn noises? I don't mean to steal your thunder, definitely have fun learning about and getting to know your new family member! It's exciting to finally see this little one you've been anticipating so long!

Thank you everyone and MrsTofu it gets easier everytime. For example I told my husband she was getting ready to burp really loud last night when I was rubbing her back and about 15 seconds later she did. He looked at me amazed. Lol. It's all about reading signals and people. The more you do it the easier it becomes. I am definitely blessed with my family. I pray God continues to grow it too!
