Emma is here!

Okay, lots of important updates: Emmalyn Grace is finally here! Actually, she has been here for 3 weeks and 1 day! She was born on August 12th, 2012 at 10:13pm and weighed 8lbs 2oz and was 20.5 inches long. She is beautiful!

After we went home she climbed on the jaundice scale and had to spend a night under the biliruben light back at the hospital. It was so sad to see her under those lights but she was in good hands. We played Jim Brickman's piano lullabyes all night long and she snoozed. She really enjoyed the warmth of the lights and the soothing music! Since we've gotten her home we are just trying to get into a routine and start life together as a family of 3. Thankfully I have 8 weeks off work and Mike has been coming home earlier and spending lots of time on the weekends with us. In fact, today is Labor Day and he has spent almost the whole day snuggling on the couch with the little one! (And making her make funny faces)
Life with a baby is better than I ever expected... the transition can be hard and especially in the first two weeks I had a few good cries about how things have changed but I am in LOVE with Emma! Who knew you could instantly fall in love with someone? She has already changed SO much from her first days and she is growing too fast... I would love to keep her this little forever :)
