Parenting after a Loss

I get to join the cool kids club! ~Intro~

Hi ladies! I'm so excited I get to move over here after being a dirty lurker for two years!

My rainbow baby Ella was born 10/10/12 at 7:52am. She's a beautiful little redheaded girl of a whole 6lb 2oz. I had to have a c-section due to BP issues and fetal distress, but everything went well, and neither of us have had any medical issues after the fact. My long birth story is over on PgAL, if anyone's interested:

Life with baby is good so far, although exhausting and a learning process! I don't think I've had more than 3.5 consecutive hours of sleep since two days before she was born. I'll gladly sacrifice whatever I have to for my baby girl, even my health and sanity! Our routine is getting better, and hopefully we'll have it down to a science soon.

Here's a picture of my little rainbow daughter (for more PIPs:

    I had my rainbow the same day as you.  Ashton Gray was born 10/10/12 at 7:36am via emergency c/s, due to fetal distress.  Our babies were born less than 1/2 hr apart!  How cool is that?

    Congrats again and btw, I love the name you chose for your precious little lady.
