What a Difference A Day Makes…

Quick Jump To » Comments

baby macy

I’ve been a little light on the posting this week and just wanted to share the reason why… our new addition to the family arrived a little earlier than expected!

Sonny & I went to a routine doctor appointment on Monday and got sent straight across to labor & delivery due to some safety concerns. I have to admit that was a little nerve-wracking… but by Tuesday morning Macy arrived – completely healthy & happy!

We’re taking a few days to adjust to being new parents and all that entails – especially the fact that she seems to have her days and nights absolutely, completely switched :0 Sleep has been pretty much non-existent since Sunday night :0 – but I know all of that is to be expected at the beginning.

I’ll still be posting regularly again starting tomorrow afternoon though… there are some fabulous new Real Parties to share! =)

    Congratulations! What a beautiful baby girl. My baby girl was born March 2nd (after 2 boys) and she is pure joy. FYI, she also sleeps 22 hours of the day so babies don’t always have their days and nights mixed up…they think it’s all one long night! I recommend reading the Secrets of the Baby Whisperer book. Works really well for sleep issues (even with a newborn!). Good luck in the coming days!
