Sydney Eleanor Has Arrived, 2 Weeks Early


Hello from my maternity leave, a bit earlier than expected. For those of you that guessed I was having a girl, including myself, we were right! Sydney Eleanor decided she was ready to arrive a couple of weeks early and we are beyond thrilled to have another happy healthy baby, first our boy John and now a darling little girl. She is the cutest sweetest thing and I’m still in shock, in the best way possible, that I am the mom of a little girl.

I had to have a cesarean again, but this time I wasn’t fully put under so there was a proper gender reveal {I was awake and my husband was allowed in the room} and we got to hear her first cry. After everything we had been through to get pregnant, and then missing these special first moments with John, my husband and I had tears of joy streaming down our faces when they said “it’s a girl”. When they held her up over that curtain we saw a head full of thick black hair as she was scream crying and sticking her little tongue out at us. It was a perfect moment.

I’ve missed you all so much. The last couple of months of my pregnancy were exhausting with my big belly, chasing around a 2 year, and a full time job so I took a bit of an unplanned break from blogging, but I’m so happy to be back. I’m looking forward to the holidays, while on maternity leave, in our new house, with two little kiddos. I hope you all are doing well, and I can’t wait to catch up with you again.

to everyone that guessed girl, we were right! #itsagirl #baby #maternity

    Ok, I am completely clueless in this regard (given that I’ve never had a baby), but you can be AWAKE during a C-section? I didn’t realize that was even possible.
