We finally just got home from the hospital with our new little bundle who's sleeping right now. I made the mistake of trying to pick up the medications from the pharmacy on the way home instead of dropping the girls off and making a second trip. I was held up at the drug store for a half hour in which time my baby started crying. Mommy had to climb out of the front seat and into the back of our van by herself with that giant wound on her belly from the c-section! I felt terrible. But we're home now and all is good.
The baby was born at 12:48pm on the 20th (1st day of summer!!!). She weighed 7lbs 3oz and was 19 1/2inches long. We gave her the name of June Audrey Kelly. Was born with a full head of very dark brown hair (almost black like her daddy's) and deep blue eyes. The surgery went perfectly. This was a planned c-section, unlike our first daughter who was an emergency c-section after mommy had already been in labor for 12 hours. With this one, Amanda was calm through the whole procedure and had no pain until hours after the surgery, much easier than before. Momma and the baby are perfectly fine and there were no complications. A real blessing! The only issue we have is on June's lip, nose, and forehead are these little dark dots which the doctor called "Stork Bites". These are pretty common and usually fade before their 1st birthday but in some cases will last their entire life. They're hardly noticeable and I personally don't think it will be any issue since she's so beautiful anyway.
Her 3 year old big sister Gracie has been so loving and wonderful to her new sister, it's so cute! But there is already a little bit of jealousy. Hopefully tomorrow Gracie and I can have some father-daughter time alone so mommy can get some rest while Grandma helps around the house. We're going to go pick out her very own and first Pink Barbie fishing pole kit so we can go down to the U-Fish down hill in Orting. This way daddy can also dust off his fly rod and try to get one of those hungry giant Rainbow trout they have there. lol
Anyways, thank you everyone for your blessings and prayers.
