She's finally here!!!

JQ Lounge is proud to announce its newest correspondent.. Little C! I think I'll call her Lil C on the blog. Don't need to mess with her Google ranking (i'll let her do that on her own) by putting her real name on the interwebs, so if you already know her name, please refrain from mentioning it in the comments. xoxo. But definitely send me an email if you'd like to know what we named her!!
So as you can tell by the last post, I had something ready to put up on the blog when I went into labor.. This blog isn't the type of place for an actual Birth Story, but it was a magical day.. and now I know exactly why its called labor. But as soon as she arrived 14 hours later, that was a mere afterthought, and all we could do was stare at this new little life... and a HUGE head of hair!

We had lots of visitors in the hospital although the visits were quick since the nurses were always reminding the new mom it was already time to feed the baby again, and look forward to seeing more this weekend! Lil C is a healthy happy beautiful little baby and within one week of knowing her, has SO MUCH personality.

The dogs have adjusted well to her. Rocco loves giving her a big kiss and always sits by her bassinet. Lexie is still getting used to someone else getting attention in the house, but she likes to fall asleep at my feet when I'm feeding Lil C.
Tough Guy and I have had a really nice week getting into the swing of things with this whole parenting thing. He's been a rock star with taking care of both his girls. And every time I'm nursing the baby, he comes running into the room with the iPad playing the Baby Genius soundtrack for her to listen to and solve quadratic equations in her head. I then change it to Jack Johnson once he leaves the room.. because I get overwhelmed with quadratic equations..

The grandparents have brought lots of meals and sneak in as much as they can for some baby time. Lil C already has her aunts and uncles wrapped around her little finger as well as all our friends who've done way too much spoiling before she was even here!!

Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of my friends out there who reached out with congrats on twitter, facebook, texts, cards, phone calls, and thankfully no skyping, because no matter how much makeup you pack in your hospital bag.. I couldn't even think of applying a lip gloss on after giving birth. haaaa
