Our Little Girl

Meeting Strawberry at the hospital
 With thanks to God, who made all things well, we welcomed our daughter Strawberry on Friday, June 28th at 7:30 in the morning.  She weighed 9 pounds and 10 ounces, and measured 21 inches.  She was delivered by caesarean section, as were her brothers, so recovery takes a bit long, but we're taking it one day at a time!  Her brothers love her, especially C-note, who always wants to hold her, and "oohs and ahhs" over her every move and sound. 

We left the hospital the following evening as I was eager to sleep in my own comfortable bed.  I was overwhelmed and exhausted from a sleepless night, and the problems I had nursing the boys seemed to be occurring again so I quit trying the second day.  Once home, though, I had a good night's sleep while my amazing husband took care of the night's feeds.  When I awoke, I thought, "What if I tried one more time, just to see what happens?"

I tried again, and we've been nursing ever since!  It's complicated and a lot of work, but I've gotten farther with her than with her brothers.

Home safe and sound
