What I've Been Up To


 I've been a little MIA lately and I thought I would let you know why, I FINALLY had my baby!! She was 5 days late so I was pretty excited when I finally went into labor.

This was taken the day before my water broke.  I was pretty uncomfortable!!

I won't bore you with all the gory details but I was reading A Feast for Crows and had just gotten to a really good part when my water broke!  After about 20-21 hours of active labor, she finally arrived!

  Julia Elise was born on 6/28/13 at 6:05 pm and weighed 8 lbs, 4 oz and measured 21 in long.  She is such a great baby!  I am still trying to adjust to her schedule (or lack thereof) but things are going pretty well. 

 Doing a little tummy time yesterday!

I have been trying to get some reading done (the nook app on my phone is my new bff) and will continue to keep the blog up, things just may be slower around here for a while.  I am participating in a couple of blog tours in the coming months so be on the look out for some reviews of great books!

I hope you all are doing great and thank you for your patience!

  6. I know I'm almost a month late here, but Congratulations! It must be such an excited time! And I love how even though it's really a post about your daughter, there still is mention of books. Especially knowing what book you were reading when your water broke. But congrats again, and hopefully you start getting your sleep back soon!
