Isabel Violet

February 12, 2011

3:37pm

10 lbs ~6 oz

21.5 inches

 

She was born at exactly 42 weeks peacefully at home.  Active labor was about 3 hours and I pushed for maybe 15 minutes!  Only a labial skidmark from her having her fist up by her head. How awesome is that?! My first baby to have so much hair at birth:)  I'll add the full birth story later.

 

Isabel (soft s pronunciation) Violet is our 4th child.

 

Newborn and 6 weeks...

Beautiful! I love her chubby little cheeks and I'm totally jealous you have a babe with hair.... my 3 were/are all baldies. My 2 yr old twins are only now getting some hair.

 

Grats mama!

Thank you!

 

My first 3 were all baldies too.  Isabel has a natural wave to her hair so each time I bathe her it waves up and then it stays however it dries-lol  It is a new experience for me-to manage newborn hair.

 

Hope you are enjoying life with your twins and new babe.

 

All the best,

 

Rosa

Wow...this is kinda freaky...I'm also in this DDC and I had a little girl who we named Isabella Violeta and she looks a lot like your baby (also about 10 lbs. at birth):

How wonderful!  What a lovely name:)  You have impeccable taste.biggrinbounce.gif

 

Congratulations on your UC.  Your baby girl is just beautiful.  Love the pic of you nursing. 

 

We did awesome!

Congrats! I love babies with a lot of hair at birth (our first did not, and I don't expect this one too have much either).  How did you do those last couple weeks with patience and waiting? I can't imagine going 4 more weeks to 42 since DS came at 38+3....it's getting tough and I might have a while!

Previous preg.s gave me lots of practice...

 

AND  i visited this site often... http://www.glorialemay.com/blog/?p=107

 

wish i could have typed more-lost it hitting weird key combo somehow-NAK ugh!!!

 

wishing you happy healthy birth,

 

Rosa
