Scout looks just like herself-at the conclusion of the whole 4 days of her life, we don't see anyone particular in her yet. She is calm, happy to be here, a good nurser, and so sweet. She arrived after an extremely long and difficult labor, something along the hours of 36 total, with 20 or so of hard labor. Although nothing went like planned, Mom and Baby both healthy and here and are healing well, we had excellent care and support both from our midwives at home and from the staff at St. Joseph's hospital. We are very happy and feel very loved!
Scout has a full head of golden strawberry blond hair. She is fair with blue eyes. I attached a picture of myself at 3 months, Scout's hair is not that orangey at this point, but the hair does resemble mine!
We are all so happy to have her here! Eventually I will post a better birth story, feel free to shoot questions this way! I'm not promising to be great about blogging, but I will try to keep posting a mix of posts I have finished and new pictures of Scout as I get them on the computer.
