I say “so” a lot. Don’t mean to be that annoying.

I am really kindof enjoying not being pregnant anymore. Like, really. It’s worth all the post-surgery pains. All of the attention can be off me now, and on poor little Pippa.




We really like her.

We forgot to mention the official stats on our last post. So here they are:

Philippa (Pippa) Reece Croft

Born June 28th 2011 9:18am

9 pounds 1 oz. (Now can you see why I enjoy not being pregnant anymore?)

19 1/2 inches long

Rated 10/10 in cuteness

I love being at home now. The hospital was cool, but the food was kinda blah. Definitely not enough salt for Micah. There were also way too many people coming in and out to check on me. As you may or many not know, I kindof like to have a little space. I felt like I introduced myself to a new person every 1/2 hour.  But, we had a lot of good people take care of us. Even though one nurse had to poke me 3 times to get the IV in. This is usually not a problem for me, since I have massive veins.

I am sorry I don’t have some epic birth story, since having a scheduled c-section kindof  lets you forego all the drama of labor, dilation, contractions, etc. Seems like “the story” is all the rage these days on “Mommy blogs.” I guess this is not really a mommy blog. Sorry to disappoint, yo.

Still, we anticipate many cute pictures and fun times as a family of 3 now. ONWARD TO ETERNITY!
