Baby’s here!

Vivian Joy arrived, June 9, 2 days before her scheduled c section. She was 9 pounds 3 ounces and 21 inches long.


We are doing well. My two oldest adore her. Breastfeeding is going great. I’m a little sore yet from the c section but doing good.

I had gained 27 pounds and as of this afternoon was down 24. I’m not dieting, but I am eating clean and making sure I get tons of protein. Burning at least 500 extra calories from Breastfeeding helps too! But baby and breastfeeding and certainly new motivations!
