Hi! I’m checking back in and so far, I think we’re all doing really well! I know Reese is only 4 days old and this could change as she wakes up more, but right now, she’s a total dream. I’ll post more about all the how we’re doing stuff soon, but she is so content, very go with the flow, and so far an answer to many prayers.
Today though, I wanted to post some pictures of Kennedy meeting Reese for the first time. I’ll post more details when I do her birth story, but my baby girl got really beat up during the delivery, so yes, she really is blue and swollen and it’s not your eyes or the monitor. She also had a low temperature for a few hours after delivery that they were monitoring so we were doing lots of skin to skin. So, that’s why we didn’t take many pictures with her out from under the blankets.
I promise, no newborns were harmed while shooting these pictures
Sorry for the weird crop, but we also didn’t think about pulling my shirt down so you know, I cropped my just-had-a-baby stomach out of the pictures for you.
and a couple black and whites because I love them
It was kind of hectic since we got moved to the recovery room a lot later than we expected and we were getting close to Kennedy’s bedtime, but she was so incredibly sweet with her. My only regret is that we didn’t get a picture of all 4 of us, but I think we were all more worried about watching Kennedy with Reese and didn’t even think about it.
My girls finally met, after months of dreaming about it, and it was a good, good day.
