I know many of you have been wondering the status of my baby so I wanted to take a minute between feedings and tiny power naps to update you and show you a few pictures. Sunday night Reilly Jane was born to the world weighing in at 7lbs and 2oz. She is absolutely perfect and has the most unique caramel colored full head of hair. The delivery process was surprisingly quick and easy (once I opted for the epidural), it literally took one push and there she was! It was a funny experience as both my nurses and my doctor were not prepared for such a fast delivery. I guess Reilly couldn't wait to see the world!
The recovery process has been easy too. We were discharged and are now safe at home doing well and NOT sleeping at all. Baby is sleeping during the day but wide awake between the hours of 11pm-4pm so that means Mommy is up too. We will eventually get adjusted to our new lives together and in the meantime are enjoying every minute of this new found love. I never knew I could love something so much until I wrapped my arms around the most beautiful baby girl I've ever laid eyes on.
As many of you have inquired I will be taking some time off to have a baby. But don't worry you will be in GREAT hands as Mojo from nights will be taking over afternoons in my absence. She will be sure to keep you laughing on your ride home while giving you the best variety of music and hooking you up with tons of hot concert tickets, water park passes and more!
I'm excited to begin this new adventure into motherhood (wow that's still weird to say) and will certainly keep you updated along the way. If you want to keep in contact you can always email me email@example.com or follow me on Facebook and on Twitter (@Mollyj85). You can bet that I will be posting pictures of my little one and keeping you up to date on my lack of sleep and struggles of being a new mommy! Please don't hesitate to check in or leave me advice, especially if you've done this before. The more I know, the better my child will turn out! haha.
I'll miss talking to you every day and will look forward to telling you all about my new journey when I return!
HERE GOES NOTHING!
Today marks my last year in my 20's and already it has been a doozie! Every year my grandparents call and sing me Happy Birthday although today I never got that call. I didn't really think much of it until I got a message from my brother that read:
"Soooo as if I was going to forget your birthday, I had a nice reminder this morning.... Upon waking up, I noticed I had a voicemail. This voicemail was from our lovely grandparents singing "Happy Birthday" but my birthday isn't until August. Anyway, to make a long story short, happy birthday big sis from me, Martha and Wayne!"
I couldn't resist publicly giving them a hard time live on the air for all of Mchenry County to hear.
Go on an take a listen to her hilarious response...
