The First Few Days

I love my little Millie!!  She is such a sweet baby!  She sleeps a lot, which is so nice!  When she is awake, she is a little needy, but that's okay.  Hopefully she'll get over that soon!  She only wakes up once or twice at night to eat and then goes back to sleep.  I think I'll keep her!!!

the many faces of Millie

My parents came to help us out this week and while they are here my dad is sure to take lots of pictures!  Here are some pics from the first day they got here.  Millie sure is a funny little girl!

Welcome to the World baby girl!

I was sooo excited when I found out I was having another girl!! I have always said that I wanted two boys and two girls and that is exactly what I got!  How could I possibly be so blessed.  I sat in the ultrasound room with Dan and just couldn't stop squeezing his hand in excitement and smile from ear to ear.  I was sooo excited!  We had a hard time decided on a name...or at least I did!  We didn't really decide to name her Amelia until she was born and maybe not even till the next day!  We planned on calling her Millie and I thought that was really cute.  We went to the hospital the morning of the 18th to get induced.  It was a relatively easy induction and about halfway through I got an epidural which helped with the painful contractions.  It wasn't too bad at all until the last half hour or so.  The pressure to push was so bad I could hardly stand it.  It took a little help from the nurses to push on my belly to get her out, but then she was out and doing great!  I had a great nurse, Amanda, and a nursing student, Brittany, who took great care of me and Millie.  I was so excited to see my baby girl.  She was beautiful.  It was so fun to enjoy looking at her for the first time.  Finally, her being my fourth baby, I knew how to enjoy the moment of having my baby in my arms for the first time.  I was excited to get home after a couple days and start showing her off!  My parents came a few days later and helped out too. She slept a lot, but when she was awake, she was a little grumpy.  She was a great eater and nursing was much easier this time.  I loved dressing her up and especially putting hair bows on her.  I love my baby girl!!!
