Party of Five

It has been a while. Yes, I know. We have been a bit busy.

The biggest news is that Miss Mia arrived on October 6th. Yes, a bit earlier than we had planned. Part of the reason I was not updating much was because I was in and out of the hospital with high bp. On the evening of Oct. 5th, the docs decided that it was enough... and scheduled her arrival for the next morning. Things went really well and I am pleased that I was very awake and in the moment. Sure, I was nervous but mostly for all the pokes I was going to get. Having done it twice before, I was not scared. Just ready to meet my sweet girl.
Minutes old - Mia Teresa - 7lbs 3oz, 19 inches long
Totally worth it.

I had a very difficult recovery. It was much more painful than the other two. I stayed an extra day due to my BP. Everyday that goes by, I am feeling better. Of course, very tired but starting to feel more like myself.
I will post more soon. Love you all and thank you for thinking of us - Emily
P.S. - this post is dedicated to Margie. She may be the only person that still comes here and checks for updates. :)

You have more blog visitors than you thought! I still keep up too...of course you're in my 'favorites'!
As busy as you've been (like recovering from giving birth, lack of sleep, and rescheduling just about everything around baby and two other kids is no big deal, right?)
Honey, you are forgiven for lack of blogging.
Love you!
