It's a girl!
My regular visitors will know I was expecting number 3.
This was me on my due date:
Jack arrived 5 weeks early. Noah arrived bright and early right on his due date. And this one. Well, I started to fret about the possibility of induction. However, on my due date we took a brisk stroll on this foggy day, I ate some spicy food, and I got out the birthing ball and bounced for 30 minutes solid. Something worked, because I had my first contraction at midnight that night, and after a shockingly speedy, but thankfully straightforward delivery, she arrived at 2.44am. Fashionably late.
Meet little May. 8lbs 10oz of lovely squishiness. We love her. And her brothers are so taken with her. What a novelty a girl is to us! We can't reuse any of our boys clothing, but I am all biz about dresses, headbands, and everything pink! So far, she is a really content little thing that doesn't cry much. She fits right in. She's not even 2 weeks old yet, but it feels like she has been here forever.
Nice to meet you!
I'm doing well after the birth, as is May. We're all a bit zonked I think. New babies tend to disrupt family routine a bit. But mostly, we're all enjoying sleepy newborn cuddles. The boys are just in love with their brand new sister. What a blessing she is.
Welcome to the family, darling.
