Day 6


So Reese is 6 days old now and I have been a mommy for 6 whole days now. Who would have thought that I could actually have a baby and then keep her alive for 6 whole days, just with my little ole body. It truly is amazing.
I can't even begin to tell you how awesome it is to just hold her and stare at her. She is perfection. I am feeling better every day and to tell the truth, the whole experience is not as bad as what a lot of people tell you. Maybe it's just because the pay off is totally worth it.
Tomorrow Scott is going back to work and I hope that I can handle it all by myself. I honestly am a little scared to be all alone with her. Scott has been so good at taking care of both of us and now it's just going to be just me and her..... wish me luck.

Stubborn little shit

This baby is seriously refusing to leave my body. I must have a damn comfortable womb.
Waiting is for punks and suckas!

6 days and counting

Oh yeah - it's big.


I now have junk in the trunk. And Scott likes to remind me of this with a Spinal Tap song.
It affectionately is called Big Bottom and contains the lyric:
Talk about mud flaps, my girl's got em.
The worst thing is that I find myself with this stupid song stuck in my head too. Sometimes he thinks he's so funny.

Still cookin

No baby yet! 7 days and counting. Waiting sucks!!!!!!
Been feeling pretty good though and getting some last minute things done at home. Still had enough time to squeeze in some afternoon naps too.
The room is ready, names are picked, bags are packed and we have been trying the "tips" to start labour naturally.

This is the view from the adjoining door of our room.
Another angle. I love my antique furniture!

Note the packed bags ready to go on the rocking chair.
And last but not least the crib with the homemade baby quilt - made with love by mommy! Don't freak out all the animals and pillows will be removed before Pedro sleeps in here.


In other news - Pam will likely be proud to hear that I went and got our car seat checked out after Scott installed it. I took it to the local ambulance garage and they checked it all over and told me that Scott had done a wonderful job. One less thing to worry about when we're bring home Pedro!
