      Ainsleigh is a spitting image of you, lucky girl!!!!
      Now the pressure is on me to get going on my labor story. :)
      I'm glad you are getting out of the house and that motherhood is treating you much better than pregnancy did... you definitely are deserving!

        Congrats on welcoming little Ainsleigh into the world..she is absolutely beautiful. May motherhood bring you lots of laughs and good times to come! Take care of yourself and try to get as much sleep as you can!!! Being a new mom is hard work! Hormones are crazy and out of wack!

          Wow Christine - your labor story doesn't sound that bad at all. Compared to the others that has totally freaked me out - you have set my mind as ease and I know that it can be tolerable. Well minus the being a week past due and all the other terrible things you had to go through while prego. I say that Ainsleigh decided to make labor easy for you :) How sweet of her.
          She is just so precious!!
          So how is it being all on your own now? Were you freaking out when your mom left?

            I think it took me this long to write it all down because I was shocked at how easy the whole thing seemed, I mean the pushing sucks, but thank god I didn't have to push for three hours like some people do.

            I am doing okay on my own, its hard because of breastfeeding I don't get a lot done but I just started using the ergo around the house and its helping a lot.
