We're Home

As most of you know by visiting Kelly (Thank you woman!) Emma Grace has arrived! She's absolutely perfect and loved by everyone! The boys are both crazy about her! She has a little bit of hair on top and a fair amount on the sides and back, it's all dark brown/light black. She looks a lot like Jackson did when he was born.

She nurses like a pro, loves to co-sleep and at night when cuddled up with Momma will sleep for a solid 3 hours at a time! She's just perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more than Emma!

 

My c-section went well. I felt fabulous afterwards! We called my mom and my best friends Tami and Emily when I got into the recovery room. I had a wonderful anestisiologist. The hospital stay in general was ugh. German hospitals and drs are simply different than American ones...I have to say I prefer American. They wanted to keep me longer, but I couldn't handle it. I felt like I was going to crawl out of my skin if I had to stay one more day. Thankfully I was able to come home yesterday!

 

The day Emma was born!

I'll update more, but Miss Emma is waking up and it's time to eat. Thank you for the prayers and love!

Very precious! and awesome name. Is it after your best friend Emily and after Miller Grace? IF it was that was very nice of you to remember them that way.
The boys look beside themselves with so much joy. They're gonna be great big brothers.
Take care, Chrissie

Welcome home Momma and Emma Grace. Good job mom, she is absolutely beautiful. Her big brothers look so proud. The name you chose is beautiful. Of course I love the name Emma because it is my oldest daughters name and was my mothers name also. You have a beautiful family and are very blessed. when I had my daughter rebecca by c-section, i went in on a thursday morning and was home saturday morning. ((((((((hugs))))))
