We're all a LOT a bit out of it this weekend. (Those first days where everyone has the 'New Baby glazed-gaze'...😵😂); But everyone is doing so amazing. Lu and I had a lot of fun finally opening our @sundayincolor package that came with our @ingelaparrhenius nesting dolls (pictured scattered everywhere but I swear they're beautiful) 🙈😍💗
Made it to the other side 😍 can you believe this chubby face!? Beat her big sister by a whole pound and inch at birth. The kissability is out of control!! What. A. Day...(I guess it was yesterday now, time has no meaning the first few weeks after you give birth). I'm exhausted and were exhilarated. Born at 1:27pm 2/25; Labored long and hard for this girl (because she was trying to be born with her little hand up by her face😝) but it was worth every second and I couldn't of done it without my amazing Aunt Parrish as Doula, my Midwife, Mom, Sisters and Husband for helping me through EVERY second of it. Thanks for all of the congratulations and kind words for our family 😘 All our love back❤️ Here's to a new chapter. #homebirth #coralinemaebemis
(Posting this and then going back to sleep!)... Moments after crawling out of the birth pool into bed holding our new 8lbs 21.5 inch long Beautiful, perfect, blessing from God.
Coraline Mae Bemis. There are no words.
A whole lotta cute for one little photo. This sweet gal was up 'til 6am, sad about her hurting molars, but it was ok because once I got past feel so pregnant and tired and stressed about it, I just relished the snuggles and holding her forever until she fell asleep (Daddy always does bedtime and it's their special thing since she's stopped nursing but last night only Mommy could help apparently). Sometimes it's really hard to remember how to step out of my physical and mental state when something big is going on (like waiting very impatiently to give birth when I can't even truly call her [Coraline] overdue yet) and just live in the moment. But when I do, it's beautiful. It's was a rough, mentally and physically draining week/end of false labor, contractions that would start and stop, getting excited only to feel discouraged😬😵😞...and it wears you out but I know it's just my body making itself ready for when she DOES decide to come and whenever that is, is when I want it to happen, and not a second sooner. ☺️💗 #GodKnowsHerBirthday #SoonSoon!
