Here's a quick picture to tide you over until I can get the full birth story finished!
Brinna Leah was born at 11:56 AM on Saturday, July 25, 2009. She weighed a whopping 5 lbs 8.7 ozs and was and amazing 18 3/4" in length.
So far her favorite things are sleeping, nursing, being held, and her pacifier. Her dislikes are being put down, nursing for more than 10 minutes at a time, and having her diaper changed.
Adelae is doing really great. She loves her baby sister so much. Brinna is the first thing she asks for in the morning and the last person she kisses at night. If Brinna cries, Adelae immediately says "OH! Get her pacifier, get her pacifier!" and runs around looking for it.
We're trying to adjust to life with a newborn and a toddler. So far, I think we're doing remarkably well. Ben is home until Monday, so he's taking on a lot of the housework, cooking and taking care of Adelae until he goes back to work. I'm recovering well from my surgery. I'm able to climb the steps and even sleep in my own bed! I'm still fairly sore and need to limit the amount of things I do around the house. I'm not allowed to lift anything more than 10lbs and I need to limit my stretching. This recovery has gone MUCH smoother than last time. I promise to get more pictures up as soon as I can.
