Sweet Sydney

I have tried to write this post about 4 different times in the last couple of days, but there is always something (err, a couple of someones) always in need of snuggling.  One of these days, I'll be able to put some thoughts down on "paper" but for now, I'm guessing what most of you want to see are some pictures and some stats.  So, here you go:

Sydney Ryann Michelson made her debut at 3:50 in the morning on Thursday, August 25th.  I checked into the hospital around 8:00 the night before.  My baby girls sure love to make me work at night!  I did this delivery naturally as well, but honestly agree that I was a little crazy for doing so.  Sydney was "sunny side up" {head down, but facing the wrong way} which made things a little lot more painful.  I'll do another post with more details {bet you can't wait} in a few days.  Sydney weighed 7 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long.

Mom and Olivia came to the hospital the next morning around 11 and the whole rest of the day was crazy.  We ended up shooting a commercial for the hospital {more details on that later as well} and were just exhausted by nightfall.  Fortunately, we were able to check out the next day after lunch.  It has been so nice being at home and being in a comfortable bed!  Sydney slept like a champ Saturday night, but last night was a little more difficult.  She is seriously SUCH a sweet baby and is so incredibly calm and laid-back.  Olivia is in LOVE with her and is constantly showering her with hugs and kisses and stuffed animals.  Sydney is such a trooper and just cuddles right up to Olivia.

The day I checked in to the hospital.

Sydney, only a few hours old.  {And, yes, I had already showered!}

The pictures are awesome. Being here with her in person...........PRICELESS!

It is amazing so see how Olivia interacts with Sydney now. I can just tell they will be the best of friends all their lives.
