Welcome to Motherhood

If you had asked me, I would’ve bet that I was going to have a small-ish baby (6 lbs or so), born a few weeks early (in April) and that I was going to have an easy delivery (after all, my mom had natural births with my brother and me). 


I was wrong on all counts. 


Viviana June came into the world on May 11, 2011 after a scheduled induction weighing 7 lbs 12 oz. My delivery was not easy, but thank God it was fast. 


Now I know what you’re thinking…7 lbs 12 oz isn’t huge and this is a true statement. But at barely 5’3” with a small torso, I just didn’t think I could grow an almost 8 lb baby. I was clearly in denial, look how big my belly was just days before delivery. What did I think was in there?!








I’d like to promise that I’ll be back with all the details of what we’ve been up to the past 4 months since last I stopped by this ol’ blog here, but I think I know better than that. So I’ll only promise that I’ll do my best. The past months have been the biggest whirlwind of love, tears, stress, family, happiness, and joy that I’ve ever experienced. 


Welcome to motherhood.

Aw she is so precious! It's so hard to take care of a new born and still blog. I wanted to blog so badly but just couldnt find the time. It stinks but at least you have such a cutie to keep you occupied.

Hooray! What a sweet little gal. And, I'm hoping for a 6ish pound baby, but I'm pretty sure with the size of this belly, I'm growing something much larger. SIGH.
