3 weeks old

I haven't said anything about how the labor went or the first couple of weeks so here it goes. The labor wasn't bad at all. We got to the hospital on Mon. Jan. 5th at around 8:00pm. I got settled in and then we got started at around 10:30pm. I didn't get any sleep bc the contractions were so intense and were so close together. Brooklyn's heart rate dropped so they had to give me a shot to slow down the contractions and they had to give me oxygen. I got the epidural at around 3:30am and pushed for an hour and a half at 6:00am and had Brooklyn at 7:23am. She was 5 lbs 13 oz and 18 in long. she was tiny tiny, but super cute and a spliting image of Clarke only prettier, my aunt Fresia would say, LOL!
Now she is 6 lbs and 13 oz and 19 in long. Only three weeks old. She is changing so much it's so insane. She can push herself off of me and Clarke and she can hold her head up for a few secs at a time and she is very alert. It is amazing how strong she is. I can't believe it! We love her so much and are so thankful for her. We have been so blessed with such a healthy baby girl.

Really Bri, she is so pretty. I saw the pictures on Nicole's blog. They look great. How are you feeling? Call me if you need anything? Sometimes learning to stay at home with just you and a baby can be hard.
