Introducing Abby

BGB decided at the last minute not to wait for her scheduled induction, and instead gave us a fast and furious delivery, during which they barely got a spinal and epidural in on time. They had to slow down the contractions to give enough time for the IV antibiotics for group B Strep to work their magic and protect her.

Abby Mae Lillie Blanchard joined the world at 6:05am on Saturday January 26.
She weighed in at 7 pounds 4 ounces.

It's Day 3 and Abby and I are both doing great. She's pretty sleepy but nursing well and having longer periods of alertness. I'm a little sore and starting to get tired, but managing well. We came home on Sunday afternoon and the four of us have been doing just fine, though the Steve's and my initial burst of adrenalin and euphoria are starting to lose the battle against fatigue. Big brother Jonas is thrilled and Tasha is looking forward to a visit home soon to meet her new little sister.

She's sound asleep watching a movie with her dad and brother right now right now so I think I'm going to try to squeeze in a nap before her next meal.
