So the last time I posted I was bemoaning the fact that my children do not like to come out of the womb in a timely fashion (or timely for their Mother.) Well I wish I could say my daughter promptly made her exit after that post, but she's stubborn like her brother and didn't. She too was forced out. Only this time it was for an actual medical reason; her fluid level was too low. On May 21st, we headed to the hospital to be induced. I was not looking forward to it as my induction with Little Dude was horrible. Thankfully it wasn't even close to being as awful as that one. The induction started around 11am and she was out shortly after 5pm on the same day. I did it all without an epidural, which scared the crap out of me and had me crying. And then I hemorrhaged. But not to worry....I was fine and a detailed birth story will come another day when I don't have 500 things to do during my son's nap time.
Here are the quick details on my second born child. Julia was born at 5:01pm PST on May 21st. She was 8 pounds and 20.5 inches long. She's adorable and depending on who you ask, looks like me. :-) In her first 5 weeks of life, she's already flown on a couple airplanes and met all the relatives on my Dad's side of the family (we attended a wedding in St. Louis.) I absolutely love having a daughter, as I suspected I would, and am getting into the groove of being a Mom of 2. It's not as bad as I feared (I have Matthew's amazing schedule to thank for this I think.)
I'm making our new weekly schedule so hopefully blogging will get accomplished more often.
Toodles my friends!
