Are you ready?? Really really ready??

here she comes!






(This pictures cracks me up SO BAD!)




I made it home from the hospital today (Saturday) -- FINALLY! Had to have an extended visit in the hospital due to a c-section. I was in labor for 25 hours, and pushed for a painful two hours, during which the epidural didn't work at all. It was decided that she just couldn't fit to be born vaginally, so I was more than happy to have a c-section. The pain was truly unimaginable -- but she is so worth it. Violet is doing great and is the sweetest, happiest little baby. We are so in love.

More details later. I've got family visiting so I had to make this brief.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments!!!!

P.S. 9 pounds 13 ounces!! OUCH! hehehe

She is so beautiful. I am so happy for you & your hubby. The name is so pretty - I considered Violet as a name choice - it was my grandmother's name.
Take it easy w/ recovering from the c-section - I had one too in June and I tried to do too much at first. And use your pain medicine. I tried not using it - big mistake.
Congratulations.

What a beautiful little girl! Relish these days -- I know everyone tells you this, but it's true, they really do go by so quickly. Congratulations!

OMG She's so beautiful I'm gonna cry! I can't believe you're a Mommy now Parker. It seems like only a few months ago we were talking about how neither of us had kids and we were content with our Puggies. Now you're a Mom. She's adorable hun!

Congratulations! What a cutie-pie! Having gone through it myself just a few months ago I know what you are going through now is *very* challenging and very rewarding. All the best to you and your growing family!

Girl, girl girl girrrrrrrrrrlllll. That is one BEAUTIFUL baby, really one of the prettiest I've seen (and I've had 4 of my own and delivered over 200 others). I love the pic of her looking at her daddy when he kisses her.

Great name too!!

Muchas smooches to you both!

Girl, you and your hubby have one precious and beautiful little girl! Congratulations! My hat is off to you-- your baby is bigger and you labored longer and harder than I did. I can't get over the fact, though, that you went through 25 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing before they realized she was too big to "fit." Your little one was 4 ounces bigger than mine, but my doctor only let me go 11 hours, no pushing, before she decided to cut him out. She even warned me ahead of time at my last doctor visit that baby was really big and a c-section might be in order. I love a big baby, though- you don't feel like you're going to break him every time you pick him up!

Oh well, the important thing is she's HERE and you're both doing great! I had a lot of back pain for the first few nights, don't be afraid to knock back those pain pills! And get that sleep whenever you can. Seriously.

Kelli said...

She's amazing. I'm so happy for you. =)

Andrea said...

Wishing you the best! She's a cutie pie. :) Rest and take care.

Domestic Chicky said...

I am dying over that beautiful little face...and the name! Perfection! I am so over the moon for you and I can't wait to see more of you both...give her a kiss on those sweet little cheeks for me!

What a doll! And she's a litte chubbo to boot - that's a good thing - she's healthy and happy. You will enjoyher soo mcuh. My last 2 babies were huge (9.8 and 9.9) and they were delightful. For the first, I'd have to agree - OUCH! So take it easy - let others to for YOU and try to sleep everytime she does. You'll all three be better for it!
