Olivia Catherine :)

Hi! Sorry it's taken so long to post a picture of my little baby!!



We are doing great! This is my easiest c-section recovery so far and the nursing is going great too.

Before my c-section I was VERY emotional....Olivia was born at the same hospital where my son was born (I went to a different hospital for the one in between them hoping for a vbac)....and it brought back a lot of memories of how terrified I was the day he was born (he had some complications and we didn't know how he would do once he was born--thankfully he did great and you'd never know it to look at him now).

I was just a pile of tears until the surgery started and I could hear her cry! What a beautiful sound This was also my first c-section where the baby got to stay with us (held by daddy) in the OR, and then I got to hold her during the 2 hours I spent in recovery...she nursed within 45 minutes of being born and is such a peaceful, sweet baby!

She was much smaller than my last 2....she was 7lbs 8oz and only 18 inches long! We are SO enjoying the snuggle time and newborn sweetness...I'm already sad for this stage to pass....
