On Oct. 17th Aiste Jean Dye was born at 10:07am at 7lbs 1oz via C-Section. She killed it, nailed her tests and even nursed while they were sewing me up. A superstar already:)
We went for the surprise gender option. I truly had no idea what we would have but the morning of my surgery we had a small delay and as we were waiting a perfect rainbow appeared and I had a feeling right then it would be a girl.
Post c section combined with new baby is not my favorite week in the world. Haha... I had some major ups and downs... the combo of not being able to move, breast getting majorly engorged, not being able to deal with first child, postpartum hormones, etc etc... it was not easy for anybody.
Luckily, Andrew is a true superstar, must have changed over 20 diapers a day, gotten up for both children in the night and had to deal with helping me move and survive.....
Grandma came over from England... not sure what we would have done without her.... family is so important and amazing.
Friends and community are pretty amazing as well. We had people drop by with food and gifts and just provide good conversations. We live in a pretty amazing little nook and are surrounded by some truly special people. THANK You beautiful souls:)
So we made it through week one. Aiste is excelling past her benchmarks and I am slowly healing... The weather has been amazing and the wind has been pumping so I have been dying inside not being able to get out for some downwinds on my SUP or mtn bike the trails in the beautiful changing forest... BUT I do have a precious beautiful family so I am not really complaining.... just surface complaining:)
Now, its all about a smooth recovery with tons of baby steps and figuring out life with a new born and a toddler:)
life truly is one amazing adventure...
live, love, laugh,...DREAM!
