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.

I bet you all are surprised to see me! I know I have been a bad blogger recently. Some of you have asked for updates so I wanted to post about what has been going on recently.
Baby Genevieve should be her shortly. My due date is August 16, however she is a BIG baby. My doctor believes she will be a July baby and I hope he’s right! I am ready to be done with the constant heartburn and I am getting so swollen that I feel like the Michelin man!
We have been slowly getting everything we need and but for a few final touches, we are pretty much ready for baby.
Sorry about the photo quality–it was snapped on my phone!
Since this is a book blog, I suppose I should also talk about what I have been reading. Here is what I read this week.
I enjoyed all three books but I must admit that I was disappointed with 84 Charing Cross Road. I loved the wittiness but I just didn’t draw that connection that I had hoped for. The other two books were great for holding my attention–especially The Future of Us. I couldn’t put it down!
I have now moved on to Gone, Girl, by Gillian Flynn. I was too tired last night to read anything but the first chapter (don’t you hate that!), but I can already tell I will love it. It is the book club choice for my IRL book club this month so we’ll see how it fares. I have a feeling it will be a resounding success!
I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday and stays out of the heat!
