We have two girls!
Penelope Laine came into the world at 6:03 pm on friday the 8th. She was 9 pounds and 10 ounces and 22 inches long. She's got long fingers and toes and a good amount of dark hair on her head. It was in a little mohawk before her bath!
I was induced in the morning around 9 a.m. It took a lot longer than it did for Jane, and I was pretty tired after being sick this last week. She was being a little stinker for the nurse helping us; constantly moving around when she would try to put the heart rate monitor on me. She's been this way through the whole pregnancy! When we finally got to the pushing stage, it went really quick, though. She came out a bit funny--had her hand up by her face.
We are both doing good today. I am a ton better than I was after having Jane. Penelope has passed all of her health checks and is making good attempts at nursing.
We've had grandparents and Jane visiting us in the hospital. Jane is going to be an awesome big sister. She is sooo excited that she is 'out' and wants to hold her. We're heading home in the morning; it will be nice to be in our own space, but will be a bit of an adjustment, I'm sure.
Looking forward to having 2 little girls to raise!
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
