Some info: newborns are hard. And awesome. And smell delicious.

Postpartum hormones make you crazy. Especially in the dark of night, or when mixed with Tired Preschooler and Mommy Guilt.

Being home is way better than the hospital.

See you after nap time.

    Congratulations! She’s absolutely gorgeous!

    In my Friday-brain-dead state, it took me entirely too long to figure out which way Dan’s face was situated in the photo. Or is it your face? KIDDING! (Love the pic, btw. SOOOO ADORABLE.)

    She is beautiful, honey. Congratulations again.

    Yeah, I remember that guilt thing with Kate. It was exacerbated for me because I was in the hospital for nearly 5 days. Flora rejected me outright in favor of her nonna, pap-pap, or daddy for TWO weeks. No lie. Don’t worry, even if you run into that with Maggie, she will come around, and she and Audrey will be great friends.

    Enjoy your naps. And the newborn smell. And any help with laundry you get!

    Postpartum hormones make you crazy? Oh dear … because these prenatal hormones delivered a dose of the crazy last night. Crying because … I can? I have tear ducts? I’m certifiable? Something of the sort. But, that’s neither here nor there. Audrey is beautiful and I’m so glad to hear you’re both resting (?) at home. Congrats!

    Congrats!!! She is a doll and I love the name! Don’t remind me about the postpartum hormones…my poor husband. He thinks pregnancy hormones are bad…add in sleepless nights and he’s in trouble! (You’d think he’d know by the 3rd time around but he forgets)

    Congratulations! Audrey is such a sweet name. I love it! I’ve been thinking about you and hoping everything, besides the hefty dose of hormones, is going well!

    She’s gorgeous! So glad there was way less drama this time and that you are home so fast (btw – jealous of how fast you got home… c/section = in hospital for daySSSS…. )

    She’s beautiful!! I think she looks a lot like Maggie but maybe that’s because of the newborn puffy-face? She’s sweet! I totally understand the post-pregnancy hormones.. UGH they suck!! Congratulations to you, Dan and Maggie!! Sooo fun to watch your family grow.

    I am equal parts elated for you and insanely jealous that you have a baby to snuggle and I’m still waddling!

    Jen, she’s beautiful and perfect and is so, so loved.

    Congrats to you, Dan and Maggie.

    Beautiful. Perfect. Congratulations!

    I think it needs to be easier the second time around, so if you say otherwise I am NEVER EVER EVER even considering it. Because as we all know the first time almost killed me! :)

    WAAHOOOO!!!

    Maggie will be fine – better, she will thrive – being a big sister. No guilt, lady. Now go nap.

    So lovely! And love the name. Just remember that she will grow up (get easier) and big sister will get used to her. I try to think of my girls as adults and how glad they will be to have each other when they’re planning my funeral! (hopefully! ha!)

    Mazel Tov, lady. Remember, I’m not that far away, so if you need anything, holler. My time is my own and I’ll do what I can for a fellow Burgh Mom.
