We are all home, safe and sound. Mommy is doing great and baby number three, born Sunday, is just perfect. Big sister and big brother are over-the-moon happy, and Daddy, well, I’m back on my eating plan and more blessed than ever!
In the 10 days or so, leading up to the birth, I was scatter-brained. I don’t know why – but it could have something to do with the fact that we live an hour away from the hospital where the baby born. I was a little nervous – a lot nervous – about making it to the hospital in time! But, all went well. Baby girl weighs 8 pounds and she is absolutely beautiful. She sleeps 4 to 5 hours at a clip and she’s already eating a full 2 ounces at each feeding. We are so happy she’s here and now our little family is ‘complete’.
I’m back to following the ‘4 Golden Rules’. I’ve just fixed a plate of some of my favorite foods and I’m going to go sit at the kitchen table, eat slowly, and think about our blessings.
By the way, in my last post, I mentioned that I would have ‘more time’ once the baby arrived, to eat and plan my days. What I should have written was that I would have ‘more of a fixed schedule’ that I could work around. We now have the baby home, we have her schedule set, big bother and big sister are off to school, and I can sit down and really follow the plan. Plus, the few days ‘off plan’ really showed me how much I ENJOY being ‘on plan’.
New babies rock!!!
I’ll post my official weight on Monday!
