She came out screaming at 8:13 and with the cord wrapped around her ankle. We couldn't believe she was more than 9lbs! My mom and Will came to visit us about and hour later. Will didn't care. And just wanted to eat crackers. Ha! But since then, Heidi has been such a great baby and Will has been adjusting.
Heidi rarely cries loudly(unless I give her a bath) and is a pretty good eater/sleeper. She was back to her birth weight after 4 days and has given me close to 4 hour stretches of sleep at night. I think having low expectations of a newborn, not having a pounding epidural headache and knowing a bit more about what I'm doing with nursing has made everything easier this time. The only bump is Will's adjustment. He wants to get in her swing, rock her a little too hard, and has spots of jealousy. But, he's 2 and I don't think I can expect anything much different. Yesterday was my first day home alone with both of them all day and we survived. The worst part was post-naps when they both had dirty diapers and we somehow got it in Heidi's hair. Then of course, they were both hungry. It was almost 80 degrees, so it was easy to play with Will in the backyard and keep Heidi inside where I could see her. Today, I was able to get the three of us out of the house to take Will to school. So far, so good!
