We’re home! We’re a family of five and life is sweet with our newest peanut.
Last Wednesday Ryan & I checked in early for baby day. What a different experience to prep and then walk into an operating room, lie down, and have surgery. There were no contractions, hours didn’t pass, and I didn’t have to push. Not even once. Ahead of time I was worried that I might panic during those last minutes. But I didn’t. As scary as it could have been, everything went smoothly.. and I was ready. Ahead of time my Dr. asked Ryan to announce the sex of our baby when she pulled it out. I focused on that- and moments later Ryan was announcing: “its a girl!” We had a girl.
Colette is sweet. Her skin is soft as velvet. Her hair is dark and silky. She smells like a newborn and makes those perfect contented grunts and squeaks. She is nursing like a champ and sleeping during the night <a little>.
We are in love with this surprise.. Colette Avery.
