39 weeks...well sort of

Today I would be 39 weeks but instead I have a 4 day old newborn, who is awesome. We have been so blessed by Hollings' arrival. She is so sweet and so good!!!! Praise the Lord is all I can say!
I have to tell you it is a very strange feeling to have a baby before your due date. I just keep thinking that I am supposed to be pregnant and waddling around, but instead I am healing and adjusting. Worth knew I would be early, I was really really slowing down. It all worked out great. Worth had been traveling for work and he was supposed to be gone on Saturday but the Wild Game dinner he went to was rescheduled for Saturday night so he stayed in town. Praise the Lord is all I can say!
BellaRose and I had a really sweet night that night too. We even made some cookies together because she was being so good. I am so thankful for that night together! Everything just works out doesn't. All the worries that kept me up at night seem to be so silly now. I was so worried about having a newborn again, but Hollings so far as been an absolute angel!

BellaRose meeting Hollings for the 1st time!
This is at the Wild Game dinner that Worth was enjoying with the guys right before my water broke. The dinner that kept my man in town!
A few cell phone pictures, and pictures from the hospital.
























Today is also my mom's birthday! She is here being a life saver and helping us out tremendously. Kelly, Angela, and Stella are coming to help celebrate and meet Hollings!

Thank goodness for that Wild Game dinner and for the snow so it was re-scheduled. I am so glad that everything is going so well. You are a PRO. I will need you to teach me everything you know before we think about #2 ;). I absolutely LOVE all the pictures but the one of you, Worth, and Hollings is so wonderful. You look gorgeous and Hollings is so sweet in that one. You four sure do make one pretty amazing family!! Love you all so much!!!

Aw, welcome home Family!!!

Rest up and enjoy having your mom around. I know that's a huge help :)

Do you think Hollings was easier than BR?

Heidi King said...

Wow! How wonderful. She is beautiful and the transition sounds so peaceful and filled with joy. I can't wait to come see her and you!

My water did break first. I was not even sure it my water. We went to the hospital to be checked and when we got there my contractions were starting. Hollings has so far been much easier then BellaRose. I am also much more relaxed and know what to expect a little more.

Yay - I'm glad everything is going so well. This gives me great hope about what our May is going to look like. -- You look beautiful, not at all like a woman who just birthed a baby:o)

JTP said...

one more thing...the centerpiece on the table is not very manly for a "wild game" dinner.... It just made me laugh :-)

Becky Swann said...

You definitely seem SO relaxed and just so happy! I loved getting to meet Hollings the other day. She is SO beautiful and so sweet! What an angel. We have been praying for this little one for a long time and are so thankful everything went so smoothly!
