Introducing... THE BEAN!

Isabella Rome was born on January 24, 2011 at 13:43. She weighed 9 lbs 3.8 oz and measured 21.5" long. She has a full head of black hair! We were all surprised by her weight and her full head of hair! I can't even begin to describe how much love we have for this little girl. It truly is the greatest high anyone can ever feel. The c-section was awesome, the recovery has been great, and we got to go home after 48 hours.

We've been adjusting to our new life as parents. Christopher has been a tremendous help around the house and is such an amazing dad. He changed his first ever diaper at the hospital and baby girl decided to give him something to remember. She shot out shit and peed all over the place after he took her diaper off. I caught it on tape. AMAZING! hahaha.

She started off being an amazing breastfeeder but Friday night we had issues that went on through Sunday night. I was in tears and cried pretty much all day on Sunday. She wouldn't latch on and it was really difficult to feed her. I was able to get nipple shields Sunday night and since then, it has gone back to her being an amazing feeder. I don't even want to ever give her a bottle again because of how scared I was that she wasn't latching on properly. I love to breastfeed. I honestly thought it was weird prior to having her but now, I can't imagine doing anything else. There's just an amazing feeling I get looking down and watching her breastfeed.

I was recovering extremely well from my c-section until yesterday. I thought I was about 100% recovered until yesterday. I think I had a set back but I ended up in the ER because the pain was excruciating. All that happened was a scheduled follow-up with OB/GYN tomorrow. I feel better today but that's because they're making me take two percocets every 4 hours. I hate the feeling they give me though. I don't feel clear headed and I feel woozy and a little nauseous. It's either that or the pain though. Bleh. Other than that, I'm really happy with the c-section.

And now, here are pictures of my little baby girl. I can't believe she's already a week old =(
