Alexia Jo


Our little girl is finally here!! She was born on 10/11/12 (the benefits of having to schedule a c-section ) and measured in at 8lbs and 21 inches long. She is my smallest baby so far. I was thinking that she was going to be at least 9lbs with how big I was but the Dr. said that it was probably because I had a lot of amniotic fluid. The c-section went well and the doctors were actually impressed with how little scarring there was considering it was my 3rd c-section. That was one of my concerns and it was definitely comforting to know that having more children was still an option. Kaylee and Declan love her so much already...maybe too much sometimes. :) They want to be around her all the time and Kaylee has turned into a little mommy and wants to help in any way she can. It's very sweet. I was more concerned with how Declan was going to act but he has been great. So far things are going well and we are so happy to have Alexia here!

Gretchen, if you hadn't just had your third c-section like a few days ago, I'd be super ticked off at you BECUASE I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW YOU WERE PREGNANT!

So I want more gosh darn information about everything. How old your other kids are and what your hubs is doing and where you guys are living and pictures of all this (except you going to the potty). I'm so glad your stomach looked so good after three c-sections! Did I tell you with my third the doc. didn't even have to cut open my uterus because it was already open when she cut into my skin? Glad it's not you!
