Erika Dawn arrived via scheduled c-section at 8:13am Wed Aug. 29th. She was 8lb 8oz. The section went as planned and I am healing well.

Erika was very mucousy and we had a couple choking scares in the hospital. They did some deep suction with flexible catheter on Friday morning and she improved ten fold. We got to come home today.

It's amazing how much easier breastfeeding the second one is. She didn't make me crack and bleed, I haven't even had to use any lanolin. I've also been breastfeeding her one armed walking around after my 2 yr old. Something that would have been impossible with the first! lol

Our 2 yr old is such a loving big sister, but we'll have to watch her like a hawk. She always wants to feed her, kiss her, love her and smoosh her....

Congratulations Monique and Welcome to the World Baby Erika!

Very exciting to hear you have second little girl and so good to hear everything is going so well now. Isn't it amazing how you can adjust to have a new little one around while still managing another little one?

Can't wait to hear more about you and Erika, be sure to catch up with all the other new mommies over on Baby's First Year Community.

Many blessing to you and your family,
