Three weeks ago today, after 42 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy, our sweet Miss Mousey finally decided to make her entrance. It was an epic birth and I will write out the full story some time, hopefully soon. For now I will just say that we are both happy and healthy. She is wonderful and oh so very loved.
Miss Mousey. Born on the morning of October 26, 2014. 7lbs 8oz. 20 inches long. Perfect.
She came out hungry and had a strong latch, right away. She was pretty fussy until my milk fully came in, two days later. However, she has been a very happy baby ever since. We rested pretty much all of her first week, and have been slowly easing back into things since then. She is a major mama's girl, but is warming up to other family members as well.
She loves the moby wrap, which is such a blessing because I need my hands free as much as possible to keep up with Bunny and Squirrel. They, by the way, are thrilled to have a sweet baby sister to love on. Squirrel has been very sweet and gentle with her. Something I didn't expect to come so easily to a two year old. Bunny is all about her role as the biggest sister. She is very proud that, at four and a half, she is big enough to hold Mousey (while sitting on the couch or the bed) by herself.
Three weeks in, with three girls, and things are going great.
