Scooter has arrived a little early. We had to have an unexpected C-section, which was frightening, but it was over quickly. And suddenly, our world has turned upside down. Her name is Avery.
Seven pounds, 7 oz, 19 inches.
We went home 2 days ago and it's been a mixture of exhaustion, chaos, flailing baby arms, midnight screaming, amid snuggles and joy with a healthy side of dirty diapers.
And relearning how to swaddle because someone's arm seems to always escape in the middle of the night, scratch herself and then wake up the entire neighborhood with her piteous wails. When we're actually awake and alert, we are really enjoying parenthood.
Can't wait to try on her Anthrokids wear. Welcome, Avery!
