Life Update /// January 2018

Happy New Year !!! I’m a little late with this post but if you follow me on Instagram you know that I had the baby on Christmas Eve 🙂 I had a pretty easy labor, went to the hospital at 430 am and she was born at 7:11am. Overall it was all really fast and hectic, she is a beautiful little girl.

So I’d like to introduce you all to Emilia “Emmy”. She weighed 9 lbs 2 oz, 22 inches in length. Red hair and blue eyes.

I am adjusting to life as a new mom again, it’s been 11 years since my son was a baby. So I’m a little rusty on some things. Because she was born over the holidays it’s been a pretty busy time, but things are settling down as we get into a routine. At first breastfeeding was difficult, she wasn’t latching properly so I had to visit the breastfeeding clinic and I’m happy to say she is now feeding really well. I’m very lucky that she is sleeping so well, she will sleep 3-4 hours at a time, as long as she sleeping on me or near me.

I’m not sure how often I will be posting, as I’m not sure how much time I will have for reading. I have read 1 book already, I’m hoping I can read 2-3 books a month, sometimes more as I have a few audio-books.  🙂

Hope everyone had a good holiday season. let me know what your first read of the year is 🙂
