Happy 4th of July

We spent the 4th at our friends Susan and Kathy. Willow got to revisit her beloved pool. The day was cloudy and rainy but we all had a great time. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday as well!

Willows First Swim

Last weekend E and I bought Willow her first 2 bathing suits as the time for swimming is rapidly approaching.

Well thanks to Susan and Kathy we were able to take Willow for her first swim today. The water was nice and warm and the day was sunny and beautiful. Willow loved the water and is sleeping very well right now. :)

5 weeks

Here are some of Willow's 5 week pictures. She is working on her smiles which is fantastic! It is amazing how quickly she is growing.

Hello everyone!

One of Willow's new outfits says cute as a bug. Are bugs really cute? Willow is definitely a cutie!

What a difference a month makes

One month! Time really flys when you are having fun! It is amazing how much things have changed (for the better) in the past month. Here is a quick catchup since my last post. After my last post little Willow's heart rate was decreasing with the Pitocin. So Friday morning she was born via cesarean section.

Here is a picture daddy Esteban took of her right after she was born. He also took a video on his phone of her crying which is fantastic because when he said her name she calmed down for a while. Currently I can't find this clip but if/when I do I will post it.

Willow, Esteban and I were in the hospital until Monday. While we were there Willow had many visitors. She is one loved little girl! The hospital was great with teaching us about how to take care of our little bundle of joy, but when the time came I was ready to go home.

Our beautiful Willow

Once we returned home our friends and coworkers organized a schedule to bring us dinners for the first 2 weeks which was fantastic! We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends!

After returning home we were visited by Esteban's Father and my Mother and Father and Gidget. It was wonderful getting to spend time with them and having them meet and bond with Willow. It was also very special to get to spend my first Mother's Day with my Mother and my special little Willow!

Willow is one fantastic little girl! It is amazing to me how much she has grown in this first month. Don't worry there will be more pictures of our sweet little girl!

Phase 2

The nurse just came in and started the Pitocin. It will be increased every 30 min.

Feeling pretty good. Slept some last night. Esteban, I think rested better than I did. Having little contractions and Willow's heart rate is doing good. Hopefully we meet her today!
