MAC's Birth Story

Quick, while she's asleep in the Ergo and I have a chance to type!  ;)  I don't get much computer time in these days, between changing and feeding.  I can manage to Tweet or do a quickie FB update because I can do that one handed on my iPhone while breastfeeding.  Actually sitting down and getting computer time in is a is putting on makeup for that matter.  But I digress...

After the jump is MAC's birth story, for your reading pleasure!  If you think it might be TMI, you know what to do.

Mhmm.  That would be me, taking a selfie on the birthing ball.

If you're on time, you're late...

If you're 15 minutes early, you're on time.
If you're on time, you're late.

We heard this philosophy of timeliness frequently at BMT and at tech school.  Sure enough, my super Air Force baby followed suit.  I had every intention of working that last UTA at 38 weeks and uploading one final photo for you of me in my maternity ABUs, but little miss had other plans.

On April 3rd, 2013, at 37 weeks and 3 days (18 days before her estimated due date), MAC made an early and timely entrance into this world.  She weighed 7 lbs, 2.2 oz, and measured 19.75" long.  Thankfully I had been on top of most of my to-do list, so I wasn't completely unprepared for her arrival.

She is already two weeks old (as of yesterday) and keeps me on my toes, to say the least.  My computer time has been very minimal and task-oriented - bill paying and so forth.  If you see me online, it's typically because I'm typing one-handed on my iPhone while breast feeding.  Thank you for your patience if you've left me a comment or sent me an email.  The quickest way to get a hold of me these days is via Twitter or FB, if you have a burning question.  Otherwise, my biggest priority is all of 7 lbs and very demanding!

We are so very much in love with our little girl and I'm learning quickly about all that mothering a newborn entails.  It's a hell of a learning curve, but we're loving every minute of it.
