We're Home!!

After a long couples of days, we are finally home.  Nothing went according to plan but the end result was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.  Lots of circumstances led to the decision to finally have a C-section at the send of a long day of contractions.  But I am grateful for the care that I received and the friends that were made and the family that was by my side.  There are lots of stories to tell and pictures to share but that can all be saved for another day.  Until then, here is my sweet little bundle of joy, Rachel Leigh, born at 6:20 Monday night, 8 pounds, 5 ounces, black hair and deep blue eyes, 21 inches long.

She is SOOO sweet! Please let me know if y'all need anything. And of course, I'll baby sit if you need! Even if she is not as quiet and peaceful as she was yesterday!

Congratulations Brooke! Rachel is beautiful. Here is my unsolicated C-section advice ~ let whoever offers to help in any way do so!!! You need to take care of yourself so you can take care of that sweet blessing from God. Enjoy your first few days/weeks that are so precious and go by way too fast. The housework can wait :) Love and prayers!

Oh, Brooke! I have so much to catch up on. I have been a bad blogger of late but am hoping to get back into it now. I hate things didn't go smoothly but am so happy Rachel is healthy and beautiful. I'm off to read more now.
