Audrey Jane Wallace!
Phew! She’s here. What a relief. Those last couple of weeks were a challenge. Audrey was born on May 26, 2011. She weighed a whopping 6 lbs., 5 oz. and was 19 inches long. Yeah…she’s pretty tiny.
Even though my blog is personal there are some things I just can’t talk about, and birth stories fall into that arena. I know some people are fascinated by detailed accounts of labor and delivery, but for me…eww. Sorry. Some words belong only in college textbooks and medical journals. Double eww.
But I will tell you this: my awesome and totally manly husband had to lay on the floor of the operating room while they were digging Audrey out! He’d struggled through my previous c-sections, but never got to the point where the surgical staff was yelling at him to lay down before he passed out. The best part was that he was trying to cheer me on from the floor. “You’re doing great, honey! You’re awesome. Sorry I suck so much!” I seriously love that man and his sense of humor…plus it will make a great wedding toast one day!
BTW, have you entered my contest yet? It’s brainless and fun. Here’s the original post for more details.
I’m so happy for you guys, and thanks for the no grossness topics (though I cringed at the “Digging her out” eeek!!!
Either way, awesome job! Your husband sounds awesome!
Congrats! She’s finally here! I LOVE the name! I hope your recovery goes smoothly! 🙂
Congratulations, she’s beautiful. Good job to both you and your brave husband. 🙂

Congratulations and every happiness! What a precious baby and beautiful name. You’re husband sounds like a great guy 🙂 (When I had to have an unexpected amnio with my second baby, my poor husband took one look at that needle and hit the floor pretty hard, but when he came around he did the same thing – telling me I was doing great and holding my hand from down there on the floor :)) Congratulations again!
Welcome Audrey! She looks like a great sleeper. 🙂
Absolutely adorable. So precious. Congratulations to you and your family. Hope your manly man recovers well, he has some diaper duty to assist with! ;)Best wishes to you and your family! Welcome little one!
Congratulations!! She’s the exact same birth weight as my oldest was. Hooray for babies! (My youngest will be 1 tomorrow. It goes so fast!)
She is so beautiful! Congratulations!
