#BuyAllTheDiapers…My Rainbow Baby is Here!

October 10, 2016

Cloth Diapers, Pregnancy

Last May I shared how I had struggled with infertility and a pregnancy loss. And then I shared with (guarded) joy, that I was finally pregnant again. My rainbow baby. For those of you who may not know, a rainbow baby is a child who is born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant/child loss. They are the joy and the miracle that comes after the storm.

I’ve spent the last two weeks in newborn survival mode bliss.  Enjoying every single baby snuggle. Every adorable noise and face. All the miracles that a newborn baby brings.

Allow me to introduce you to my daughter, Norah Grace.

Norah was born on September 23rd at 5:40 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 4.8 oz and was 20 1/4″ long. <3

She came into the world fast and furious after a looooong (non-progressing) early labor. I want to share my birth story when I have time. But you know how that goes with a newborn ;) I thought I’d better at least check in with the world so ya’ll knew we are still alive over here.

I’d heard it’s easier the second time. Birth and recovery that is. But I can tell you that was not the case for me. Even a few years (older) seems to make a difference in how you recover and I’m feeling like a total old fart right now.

Hopefully, you stick around. I have a few birth myths I want to talk about when I get to my birth story. Plus, all the newborn cloth diapers I’ve gotten to try…I can’t wait to share the ones I love, and the ones I didn’t.

Finally, I want to say thank you and send so much love to all of you who have offered me prayers and words of support throughout my pregnancy. You touched my heart in a special way and I won’t ever forget it.
