Announcing Genevieve Wells

For those of you that are curious, I had my baby girl this past Thursday, August 2.  I was induced at 38 weeks due to high blood pressure.  After 16 hours of labor, including 3.5 hours of pushing, she was born vaginally.  Unfortunately I did have a few complications but they were pretty minor.  Baby G suffered a broken collarbone and is now battling jaundice too, but I feel so blessed because I know things could have been worse.

We’ve been told that baby has quite a temper on her but I think she is absolutely perfect! As tired as I am, I hate to put her down to even go to sleep because I don’t want to miss a single moment!

I am trying to get back into the swing of things but so far it hasn’t happened.  I haven’t cracked open a book since I went into labor on Wednesday (and I am right in the middle of Broken Harbor! I need to know what happens!) I refuse to stress about it though.  The most important thing is to enjoy my baby.  I am already upset at the prospect of her getting older and growing up.

  17. Congratulations! She is beautiful! Temper? ..I don’t think so..she just knows what she wants! Enjoy every minute!

  18. Congratulations – she is a sweetie! Ignore those people people who say she has a temper – you’d be crabby, too, if you had a broken collarbone. Enjoy every minute with her!

  19. I am so so sorry to be so belated in wishing you congratulations!!! (I was away and got behind on blogging.) She looks gorgeous … though I wish she had had an easier introduction to the world. But, like you said, it could be worse. I’m sure you’re in that weird sleepless twilight world of mother of a newborn so I’ll keep it brief and just say CONGRATS!!

  20. Congratulations!! She’s beautiful. Enjoy the time. They sleep alot at this stage so you’ll still get some reading in 🙂

  21. Congratulations and enjoy that little bundle of sugar and spice.

  22. Congratulations on beautiful Genevieve!! I’m sorry to hear about her collarbone but I hope that she (and you) heal quickly. And do enjoy those moments–sometimes it feels like it’ll never pass (the crying, the sleepless nights) but they do and then you have a little girl instead of a baby girl. Sending kisses!

  23. Aw! Congratulations. How is everything going? hugs!
