Born on August 3, 9:18PM. Clocking in at 7 pounds 13 ounces, 19.5 inches of pure cute!
I have never been so smitten, so deeply enamored. I love her to bits and pieces it is hard to breathe…and I have never felt so completely overwhelmed in my entire life. Hubs and I are flying by the seat of our pants here.
I have been dealing with some breast feeding struggles which are a topic for a completely different post, but aside from all of that, I have been snuggling with Shira the last few days, trying to get to know her. She has incredibly wise eyes, and about 349 expressions that I can count so far. Hubs and I stare at her a lot.
I will write a whole post on Shira’s birth story, but let’s just say in regards to my last entry: YES–that was it. Labor came hard and fast. From the onset of my bloody show at 6AM on Saturday morning to Shira’s birth was about 12 hours total. Holy cow, I have never experienced ANYTHING like that before. It was a complete body takeover. I became another human.
More updates to come!
