Born on 4/08. She weighed 7lbs 15 oz, 20 inches long, and her name is Harley Quinn  :)


She was 2 weeks late! You could really tell lol. Her skin was so dry and cracked. I spent 2 days rubbing lanolin into her hands and feet to make them feel normal and stop the cracks from bleeding. Other than that... no problem at all!

It was actually my easiest labor. My water broke Friday morning around 7:00. I knew I was in Labor the night before but I decided to just go to sleep. I woke the kids up, me and my husband drove them to my moms, went to BK and got some breakfast, than headed in to the hospital. I got there and was 4cm, took a 45 minute bath and ended up at 6cm, and then I got my epidural. It was placed PERFECTLY! I literally felt nothing lol. I was on the phone calmly talking to my sister while I was pushing and had her out in about 5 minutes:). I was only in labor for about 6 hours (after water breaking) when they usually last about 32 hours.


I actually feel amazing. Im not bleeding anymore, nothing is really sore, and I came home yesterday and made a lasagna for dinner lol.


She is really the best baby ever. I decided to breast feed and I feel like it was the best decision I could have made. I am supplementing with formula as recommended by her pediatrician. She didn't pee for 24 hours and lost quite a bit of weigh before we left. But she is nursing very well and I make sure to breast feed on each side for 30 minutes or so before I will even offer her a bottle, and so far she only had formula 4 times.
