Two weeks

My baby is two weeks old today.

I had a planned c-section (my 3rd). My OB let my husband announce the gender. It was so funny. He stood up to peek over the drape.

He stood there.

And stood there.

I was anxiously awaiting to hear if we had yet another boy or if we'd get something different.

Finally my OB said to him, "You recognize that, don't you?"

"Aha, another boy," I thought. My eyes welled up with tears because three boys was going to be awesome.

Still, my husband stood there, peering over the drape. "Please tell me you've SEEN one of those before?!?!?!!"

My husband finally stammered, "it's a girl."

Here she is. Grace Annabelle.

My smallest baby yet. My boys were 9 lbs 12oz & 9 lbs 3 oz. Gracie was 7 lbs 2 oz. It was by FAR the easiest pregnancy & delivery. I had none of the complications I'd had in the past plus I was comfortable working right up until the day she was born. Again, I have this surgery to thank for that.

Now that I'm on maternity leave, I've decided to learn how to quilt. I've made a few rag quilts in the last few months but now I'm trying to learn how to make real quilts. Here's the one I started for my baby girl.
