Baby Lucia is here! Labor began the night of Christmas Eve and baby arrived Christmas morning. She is definitely the best Christmas gift we’ve ever had. Labor and delivery were smooth and we lucked out with having the same nurse as I delivered with for Caleb, who I had such a great experience with. Lucia weighed in at 7lb. 2oz and 19.5in. long. These days I hold her a lot and stare at her a lot. It’s still surreal to me that she grew in my body, I have no idea how she fit in there!
For the last two weeks, we’ve been learning what it means to be a family of six. There’s a lot to balance, a lot of big and little needs, and some moments are extremely hard and other moments are so sweet that I want to capture them in my mind forever.
We have had so much help from family and friends, and we have been so grateful. There’s been an ongoing stack of Tupperware and dishes to return to people who have brought food, and it reminds me how well taken care of we are.
We are taking it SLOW these upcoming weeks. I’m especially trying to enjoy Lucia being so tiny, I know this phase goes by so fast.
