Mom Life
welcome, sabrina kay!

It’s been just about a week since our world was blessed with the arrival of our second daughter, Sabrina Kay.  And what a beautiful week it has been!  Sabrina was born last Sunday, October 23, at 8:29 a.m.  She weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz., and she was 21″ long.

We were scheduled for a repeat C-section this time, which was a mix of comfort (we knew what we were getting into) and a little strange (let’s set an alarm to have a baby!).  After Corinne’s birth taking forever, and then not ending up how we planned, it was a relief to have much more of a plan on how Sabrina’s day would go.

We were out of surgery and up to our post-partum room by mid-morning, and we were all worn out!  My dad and Joetta were the first visitors to see and us and the new baby.

Girlfriend’s first bath!  She hardly cried and I think she liked it, ha.  I get it, girl – I like when people wash my hair for me, too 😉

A visit from Brian’s parents…this is their 7th grandchild!

Corinne meeting her little sister for the first time!  She came to visit with my mom a little bit each day, and despite being a little uneasy about the whole situation, she did very well.  I don’t think she liked seeing me in a hospital gown & bed – she did much better a few days in when I was wearing normal clothes and sitting on the couch.

I love this picture of my mom and Corinne meeting Sabrina for the first time!

Our last day in the hospital, with my little Halloween baby – ready to be home!

On our way home!

I always look at our time with both girls in the hospital as such a special time.  Yes, it is tough as well, as I’m trying to recover from surgery, but it so nice to hunker in and get to know our new dynamic as a family.  By the last day, we were so ready to be home with Corinne!  I feel very blessed to have had a safe and healthy birth and baby – there is really nothing else we could ask for.  Welcome to our family, sweet Sabrina girl!
