Alena - My baby girl...

June 29, 2007 10:07pm CST
After been away from mylot for more than a week...am back and have a great news to share. I gave birth Wed to a healthy baby girl. We named her Alena Sophia. She is 7.8 oz and 19 1/2 inches. We are all enjoying her and am still taking it slow because I had 3 needles in my spine from an epidural shot. Still sore but finally am so happy today that me and the baby finally was able to go home. I miss mylot and even though I won't be spending so much time these coming days, but will be answering discussions. I love it here....

Congratulations on your new arrival, i hope she brings you all the love in the world. You'll be very surprised at home much free time you'll have though, they recommend not cleaning & stuff when she naps so you can sleep but still, newborn's will sleep for like 20 hours a day :) You'll still have a bit of time to yourself, when you're not napping, to jump on here & give everyone updates etc. Again, congratulations & hopefully your daughter will be as quiet & easy pleased as my daughter WAS when she was born! Good Luck & Happy Parenting!

Thank you so much. I wish I got enough Mommy time for now coz my back is still bothering me from those epidural shots but I got a 3 years old who also demanded my time. But this is part of being a parent...so am enjoying it as much as I can. Thanks for the comment again...=)

Thank you so much. This is my second one...I got a 3 year old daughter and she thinks Alena is a doll...she doesn't want her taking a nap because she wanted to play with her. I think she was not thinking that little sister means a wailing baby and can't play dolls with her...=) She is adjusting big time but she is Mommy's little helper.

Congratulations to you and your family. That little angel is so adorable! Hope that Big Sister gets a lot of attention too, so there won't be any sibling rivalry! (Or at least not too much, LOL!) The name you gave her is pretty and unique--is it a variation of "Elena?" Anyway, try to get a lot of sleep and rest, because you won't be sleeping much for the next 18 years! hahahaha! :-}
