Here Lately

Things have been a little hectic lately, and I have been a HORRIBLE blogger!!!
So... Let me catch you guys up on what been going on!
I gave birth to this beautiful  baby girl on February 24, 2011.
I went in the hospital early that Thursday morning ready to get my epidural and have a C-section.
Turns out, an epidural wouldn't work on my back due to a previous back surgery years ago so they had to put me to sleep.
Since they were putting me to sleep, nobody could go back with me:(
So they roll me back into the room with all the nurses and doctors and I was FREAKING OUT to say the least. They had to give me some anxiety medicine because I was so worried I was going to wake up in the middle of surgery. Well they put me down with just general anesthesia, and about 20 minutes later they woke me up and put Kinsley in my arms.
The pain was SUPER bad because they couldn't give me any pain meds when they put me under because they could've hurt Kinsley.I was in so much pain from them cutting my stomach open I didn't even want to hold her so I gave KM to my mom until my pain meds kicked in. 
She was 6 lbs 11 oz and 18 inches long, and completely beautiful. It is definately true when people say it is love at first site, it was unreal how much love I had for her and she was only minutes old!
I was determined not to stay in the hospital very long so that night I told my nurse I wanted to get up and walk around so I could start earning some strength back, it was pretty difficult, but like I said I was determined!
I got to leave the hospital that Saturday and Kinsley was down to about 6 lbs, she had a pretty bad case of jaundice BUT we fought it and now she is 10 lbs at 9 weeks!!!
I'll show you guys some pictures of our journey the past 9 weeks.
Here she is at 4 days old.
This was her first bath I got to give her at home!!
Kinsley Mae at 5 days old, so alert!!!
We are still in the hospital in this picture, her little bandaids on her hands where her iv's were:(

2 weeks old! She is SUCH a happy baby!
Good Morning!!

To say the least I am a little obsessed with her and take pictures CONSTANTLY!! I am so happy to finally have everything organized (well organized enough for right now) so I can get back in blogger world!! I hope all of you have had a great past 2 months!! If anything exciting has happened PLEASE fill me in on your lives while I have been absent!!! Miss you guys!!!
