I feel like everyone always feels like they have to have an excuse for starting a blog. For me, it is more that I finally have something to blog about. Brent finally got his way and we had a little mini us. (Of course he also got his way and was able to build that fancy studio on our basement, but I refuse to blog too much about that!)
Stella Marie Sallay was born on June 20, 2008 at 10:50 am weighing in at 6 lbs. 8 oz. I was induced the previous afternoon and was tortured to the point of tears several times until I was finally able to push out our little devil. I enjoyed the pushing more than I thought since it was the only part of labor I seemed to have much control over. Some of the highlights of the night were when my labor seemed to halt progression post epidural and my dad suggested that I get up and take a walk to get my labor going, to which I had to remind him that I was numb from the waste down and couldn't really walk too well at the time. Also, even though Brent could eat all the real food he wanted he still coveted my Popsicles and flavored ice chips. I think most of the nurses we had in the course of the evening wondered what I was doing with such an insensitive husband.
Well our little muffin (as I have started to call her) is now 5 weeks old, and so it seems I have a lot of catching up to do blog wise. There are a lot of little stories and details that I want to remember, and I hope that I find the time to share with you. Thank you Stella for giving us a reason to blog and also for arriving with the chubby cheeks and luxurious hair I ordered. Mommy and Daddy worship you as much as you worship your bottles. Speaking of, it is time for one just now!
