So it turns out only being in labor for one hour, and having a mostly natural delivery, makes for a REALLY great recovery. In fact, as soon as I was moved to Postpartum I felt like a million bucks. I seriously had more energy after giving birth, than I had had in the last ten months!! My delivery went so smoothly and I didn't even feel like I had just given birth, so as soon as we hit our 24 hour mark in the hospital, we packed up and headed home. I love my time in the hospital, with Lucy I stayed 3 days, as most women do, and it was great. I also loved my hospital experience this time, but I was anxious to be home with Lucy and start out our family with our newest addition. So Sunday afternoon we went home and spent some quality time together! :)
Here are a few pictures of our little Dottie in her first few days of life.
Lucy absolutely LOVES being a big sister. She always wants to hold her "sis" and help put her bows on, change her diaper, get her clothes on, etc. It is the sweetest thing ever!!
