Well... What a year it has been! Michael and I found out late June 2010 that we were expecting a baby.
Pregnancy, holidays, moving, ETC.
We sold and packed up everything we had, ready to move across the country to Chicago, IL. (Where Michael's family is from) All the job leads Michael had fell through, which helped us both realize Chicago just wasn't for us. Michael came back to St George a month before we had our sweet baby girl.
Elayna Moiraine Vera was born March 9th, 2011. Our birthplan was to tough it out and go all natural. Boy were we wrong! After 17 1/2 hours laboring, (12 of which were unmedicated) the Dr told us we were headed for cesarean. Elayna was 7lb 15oz and 21 3/4 inches long. We are so blessed and happy with her!
Everyday with her is the best day of my life! Her giggles, snuggles and smiles keep me going. She's almost 6 months and is sitting up like a pro! She loves to giggle at her daddy, swim, snuggling with her bedtime bear, and to watch Cat in the Hat and Spongebob Squarepants!
I'll write soon... or maybe this will be just an annual thing. who knows?
