Baby Sister is here!
Rosemary Rae Hipp
arrived Thursday, June 16th, at 7:51am, 7 lbs 14 ounces, 21 inches long.
The C-section has been a totally different experience from my previous two births. It was very quick- all set up at 7:30 and they grabbed her by the leg (still breech!) and pulled her out just 21 minutes later! But while the birth was short and sweet, and went very well, I can tell the recovery is going to be much longer. I've just been very sore and slow to get moving around. Yesterday was a long Day 2, but today is already promising to be better. Rosemary is eating well, and just doing a great job being sweet and adorable! Everyone is in love with her and Big Sister & Brother have been so sweet on their visits up here to the hospital to see her, wanting to hold her and sing to her and share chicken nuggets with her! The Lord has certainly blessed us with this gift of another beautiful, healthy child!
These are some pictures of her just 24 hours old, by the hospital photography company. Definitely the best hospital photos I've ever seen! So awesome to be able to get professional photos done while we're still here in the hospital! I love them...
