Our short conversation:
Mommy: Night, night Gabby.
Gabby: Night, night Mommy.
Mommy: I love you.
Gabby: I love you too babe.
It makes me laugh when she says things to me that Shaun and I say to each other. She always yells through the house, "babe, are you here" to Shaun. Or she says, "Shauny boy" sometimes instead of dad. But my favorite is when he gets home she often says, "hi babe."
I sure love this age! The pros for sure outweigh the cons of it.
Also, how in the heck is Stella 1 month old on Wed? I want to go back to the day I had her and just start all over again!!! It is so bittersweet to have a growing thriving little infant. She has been nothing but pure joy to me.

Enjoy Texture Spray. This stuff is my favorite stuff I've ever tried. I have super fine, flat, hair. The only thing its good for is feeling soft. This stuff makes it have body but not feel like crap in my hair. I'm super picky about my hair feeling gross, this passes the test.
OPI: Makes Men Blush. Great natural nail color. Not too pink or peach.

Today while I was driving, I saw a very similar picture on a billboard that said, "Cure your hangover" I laughed, then almost cried! YIKES. I forgot how awful/weird postpartum baby body looks. Good thing for daily-ish improvement.
On another mad note, Stella's blessing dress is not here yet!!! So much for spending $25 flipping dollars on 2 day shipping (5 days in advance)! Ugh!!! Family pics/baby pics are tomorrow! Crap! My kids are going to have ghetto pics unless I can get to UPS early enough and track down my MIA package(S)!

Stella has been so sweet! I can't believe what an amazing experience it was to have her. It was so relaxing to have a scheduled birth rather than emergency c section. Things went so smooth and she came out just ready to be here. So far she has put up zero fuss! She is so beautiful, I can't believe you can fall in love with more than one baby. It is so fun to have a growing family and see Gabby take so well to her. She loves baby Stella and tries to help with everything. I was so worried about Gabby getting enough attention. Shaun has been an amazing help!! It would not be so smooth if he weren't helping out so much. We could not be more excited. I am having so much fun with her.
I'm so mad this picture was blurry! I had Shaun take a few pictures right before we left the house. They all turned out like this. Oh well, you get the idea.... She is ready to join our family!
As it turns out, I pretty much went into labor when they were monitoring me and giving me fluid. My contrations were about 5-8 min apart so she would have been here soon either way.

Wed. Morning came and went in a hurry. I just got home and things are going great! Stella came out crying with her eyes open to see us! She is so amazing and is doing perfectly!
I have lots of pictures as soon as I can get to them!
