4 weeks old.

we visited the pediatrician this week where blythe weighed 7 lbs 4 oz...she's growing.


3 weeks old.

blythe seems to be relaxed into the world a bit more now...stretching out her limbs and generally feeling longer and less curled up.
it is so special having a newborn again.


2 weeks old.

big week around here.
we visited the lactation consultant who confirmed things are working and she's growing...6lbs 5oz.
blythe's umbilical cord fell off so she got her first bath.
and nighttime sleep has come much easier, with nice chunks of rest between feedings.


1 week old.

blythe sleeps a lot in the day and cluster feeds at night.
she has gained a few ounces since hospital discharge.
her brothers continue to check on her, ask to hold her, show her things, and are generally very loving and welcoming to their new sis.
matteo walks into the house saying, "blythe? blythe?" then goes off to find her.


baby sister.

(monday morning)
if you see us on instagram you know blythe cora was born on 7/17/17.
(david and lindley...my operating room crew.)
it was a straightforward c-section without any hiccups...couldn't ask for more.
(that best first moment)
she emerged at 1:02pm weighing 6 lbs 3 oz at 19 1/4" long.
(we meet)
(dad snuggles)
(aunt lindley snuggles)
we spent the next two nights in the hospital and arrived home on wednesday to two very welcoming brothers.
(skin to skin bonding)
(visitors...aka blythe's fan club)
nicolai and matteo have loved holding her across their laps, kissing her fuzzy head, and generally checking in on their sister...a smoother transition than i may have anticipated.
the cousins asked their mom if blythe could go to their house and be their sister.
she is quite adored.


belly shots: take 3.

knowing we were set for a c-section date we pulled out the belly for some pregnancy pics.
this time i've measured smaller than the others and this pregnancy flew by...if anything i would have guessed it to be entirely the opposite with a third pregnancy and first girl.
leave it to life to keep me on my toes.


38 weeks pregnant.

we are set for a c-section in one week.
overall this pregnancy has felt easier than the others somehow.
i don't feel as "ugh" as i have in the past.
not sure if that's simply because i'm kept busy by my other two little people or if things really are different this time around.
certainly my belly has been measuring smaller than expected by 1-3 cm at different times.
i still fit into a few non-maternity items which was never the case in the past.
this one moves around a lot, especially at night...more than i remember anyone else moving and grooving...one little girl told me that means she'll be a dancer.
we shall see.
