I have three adorable little flowers!
And I never even intended to have theme names! :)
While I was dreaming about my three sweet girls, and how awesome it is to have sisters,
I decided on a middle name.
Leigh (after my sister Laura - her middle name) and Anna, (after my sister - Anna!)
Violet is such a dream.
Which is good because we're still not actually getting to the dream state of sleep yet.
Her birth was a lot like the others except for two things:
She was not early! In fact, I was induced two days before her due date.
(Walking around at 5 cm and like 90% effaced for two weeks makes my doctors nervous)
And also, my epidural was a nightmare. NIGHTMARE.
Really wishing I would have opted out considering that once again, it was like two pushes and out she came!
I was back in the ER the next day after being discharged to have a blood patch due to spinal fluid leaking and causing a spinal headache, and thankfully (ohhhh thankfully!) it was successful.
But that little Violet...she is loved and cuddled constantly.
And somehow, today, she is 6 weeks old! (photos are from 2 weeks)
It's so fast, it just is.
And with every step, I find myself wondering if it will be "the last time".
You know...the last time I check into the hospital to give birth,
the last time we take a newborn home from the hospital,
the last time I use a newborn onesie...
Ahhh, my heart.
