I know I’ve been MIA from blogging as hubs and I have welcomed our baby girl about two weeks ago! She weighed 6 lbs 7 oz and was 18 inches long (she was an inch and half short of what the baby app predicted but I knew that she would be a peanut!) Now, for the big reveal (unless you follow me on Instagram)….her name. Baby girl’s name is Riley Serenity. Hubs and I came to a compromise (thanks to my sister in law) in regards to her name. We could not decide on a name and we were both adamant about the names we had in mind. Thankfully, they work well together!
These last few days have been a whirlwind and somewhat of a blur. Truth be told, I don’t remember much of her birth. I do, however, have a few flash backs to those moments. As brand new parents, we’re trying to figure out what her needs are and what we can do in order to meet them. Each day she teaches us something new and we’re eager to see what her personality will be like in the future. We’re also trying to soak up this precious time as we know that she won’t stay like this forever!
Riley’s Birth Story is completely different from what I expected her birth to be. Some of what was on my birth plan was followed but I had to be flexible towards the end as she was not coming down. On the other hand, Postpartum has been quite challenging for various reasons, but I’m trying my best to not be beaten down by it. If there’s any interest in her birth story and my postpartum, I’ll definitely share our experiences.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being apart of our journey. We’re excited to see where she takes us in the next adventure.
