Hi everyone! Sorry I'm bad at updating things. Now that I have this baby hanging around all the time, it's hard for me to walk into the other room, let alone type out coherent sentences.
ValH: What an an adorable sweet baby!
LivingSky: You've got a super adorable baby too. I'm enjoying my tiny tiny newborn, but I'm really excited for when she can sit up and smile and do those not-quite-newborn things too.
MommyMatsumoto: You look so cool! Congrats on third trimester. In my experience, it's the longest and crappiest one, but it has a happy ending.
TTCCoC: Looking forward to seeing what happens with your delivery. Induction sucks, so IMHO avoid it if it's medically reasonable to avoid it, but you can totally get through it if you have to do it. Sending you pudding-like cervix vibes! I gotta add, as NOT READY and as terrified as I was when I got sent to L&D for my surprise induction, I was also pretty excited to be meeting my baby.
Everybody: Someone who isn't me has to post and run the November thread. As I have aptly demonstrated, you can be a complete slacker and still do okay at this job, so don't be scared!
Also I'm sending good wishes to all the puking first trimester people. Hang in there mamas.
And now, here's too many Julia pictures:
five days old
nine days old - having a cuteness showdown with the dog
ten days old
twelve days old
It's hard to express in photos just how tiny she is. She's a regular sized newborn, but wow! Babies are SUPER SMALL!
