KGB Has Arrived

So many things to say – so long gone – but let me just come back and make my first blog post in a while about the birth of KGB.  This one is mostly pictures, with her birth story to come later.

Little KGB in the hospital.  One of the only ways I could be close to her while in pain.

Bottom line is that we are blessed.  She is the best baby – she sleeps almost all night long, waking only to nurse (and does that quietly).  Otto has been able to sleep for 3-4 hours at a stretch, and gets 6-8 hours of sleep a night (as much as he was getting before the baby was born).  She nurses well – she started within an hour of being born, and has never had an issue.  KGB is in size Newborn clothes and Newborn diapers (we are hoping to move to cloth diapers soon, but just can’t right now with my medical issues going on).  She was born with a full head of hair – and frankly, is just beautiful!  She has Went’s face/features and GO’s colouring – she is going to be a perfect mix of the two and ties our family together.

We love her, all of us.  B10 and CW have taken to walking her around and singing to her.  Went likes to pat her head and say “baby”, and brings her toys.  GO is a little mummy, and can’t stand to hear her cry.  She wants to hold her baby sister and snuggle.

And Otto – he’s been our rock.  He’s the only one who can swaddle her right.  He walks her on those rare occasions when she is crying and tells her all about God and her siblings and how much we love her.  He has changed almost all of her diapers, and been at her doctor’s appointments and protected both her and I from everything he can.  He is my hero.

Our family is finally complete.

Love,
Mummy Butterfly  )i(
