Introducing My Daughter!



Wow. It's been almost two weeks since I gave birth to my daughter, Claire, and the time sure has flown ever since! Almost immediately, it felt like she'd always been here. She was born on March 5 at 2:22pm, weighing 8 lbs. 10 oz., 20 inches long and a head full of hair!

We've spent the past week on a steep learning curve, figuring out nursing and experimenting with ways to get her to fall asleep (and stay asleep!) as well as just getting to know her and watch her grow, even in just these few days. Honestly, it has definitely been harder than I'd expected and more trying (lots of tears on both our accounts), but also more gratifying.

We're still finding our stride with parenthood, and fortunately my husband has been able to take off a couple of weeks to spend at home with me as we adjust to life with our little, leading lady. Which is why I hope that you've been enjoying all the great guest posts I've been sharing since I went into labor earlier this month. There are still a bunch more that I'm thrilled to get to share, and hopefully sometime in the next couple of weeks, things will be more settled around here so that I can get back to blogging on my own.

In the meantime, I really appreciate all the support and love you've shown through this whole pregnancy and now during this adjustment period. It means a ton!

  1. So great to hear from you Carmen, and wonderful to hear that Claire is doing well. What a beautiful girl she is! I'll be praying for this adjustment period (Which I have heard can be so hard) Know that you are not alone in that, and you are not doing anything wrong.
    Many blessings

  7. Congratulations! I kept checking to see when you'd introduce your little one. She's absolutely precious! And I have to tell you, even 4 1/2 months in, the learning curve is still steep, and there are still tears, but it's a very fulfilling job!
