The Never-ending Adventure Begins: Parents of 3

20 Mar

This birth is radically different than the last two.  Kirby was born naturally, and from first pain to birth, labor lasted about 24 hours.  He weighed about 8 pounds exactly and was 20 inches long.  Frankie was born in the birthing tub, and from first pain to birth, labor lasted about 24 hours.  He weighed about 8 pounds exactly and was 20 inches long.  Daisy is born 6 hours after Nicole’s water breaks, and 7 days after Nicole first feels a contraction.  She is facing up, causing pain that is definitely 10 on a scale of 1-10, and Nicole requests a much-appreciated epidural this time.  She weighs 8.7 pounds and is 20.9 inches long.  She is thankfully still a girl, as the ultrasounds indicated.  She has long brown hair just as the boys did, but her eyes are definitely blue and her nose is not upturned but rather sculpted like yours.  She is chubby and cute and pink and little and perfect.  You cannot thank God enough for this amazing little blessing.

You and Nicole and Daisy spend the next two days in the hospital, and a few good friends take turns taking care of the boys.  You have never received so many visitors in the hospital before, and you are beyond grateful for the generous outpouring of meals, and gifts, and support for your whole family over the next couple weeks.  Your work gives you 10 days off following your return home, so you are able to get the household all back together before you have to join your company for a couple weeks of training.  The boys adjust quickly to the new baby.  Kirby is very doting and Frankie is very protective.  Both boys love on Daisy endlessly, and Frankie especially requires a kiss from her every minute or two.  Your household involves a lot more laundry, but it is definitely fun to have pink & purple clothes with hearts and butterflies and polka dots on them for a change from the monster trucks & dinosaurs.  Enough talk, though; let the photos of your precious daughter speak for themselves.

You eagerly await the first visitors to share Daisy with.  Who will it be?  Go to 10th Adventure: Easter Visit from Grandmas to find out!
