Two Weeks

Sophia had her two week check-up this morning and weighed in at 7 lbs 10 oz. She’s gained an entire pound since her appointment last Sunday! No worries about this little one’s appetite. And she sleeps too! I am so lucky. Bella was a little apprehensive; but I’d made sure to repeat all morning that […]

Postcard from Babymoon 2

Number of hours in a row Sophie slept last night: 4.5 Bliss! Number of outfits Sophie has worn so far today: 3 I keep forgetting I need to move quickly to get a new diaper on because newborns have no compunction about spraying everywhere. And how does the poop explode up the back like that? […]

You know you’re the mother of a newborn when… you rejoice because you actually get through a whole sleep cycle. I lay down at a quarter to one and woke up at four not because Sophie was crying but because I had to use the bathroom. Ah what bliss what joy: three hours of sleep […]

I’ll go up to the neonatal care unit to nurse when she gets hungry. (At least I’m pretty mobile now so that won’t […]

Hospital Varia

Isabella and Sophia Isabella, Sophia, Dom and my mother, Grandma Scott Bella, Sophia and Grandma Me and Sophia Bella, Sophia, and […]

She’s Here!

Sophia Therese arrived at 4:30 this afternoon. She is 6lbs 15oz, 19 inches. She arrived by c-section, a little bit of a disappointment; but we’re both safe and healthy.  (Turns out her umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice and had a knot in it to boot.) The delivery itself was very rough; I […]
