My name is Firefly. I was born via planned c-section at 8:17am on December 9th.
My mom said that it was the best birth she’d had so far.
The whole thing was pretty much a fog for me, personally, but I do remember having lots of nice cuddle time with my Mama and Daddy!
I was born with lots of hair and my Mama thinks I’m going to have ringlet curls. Daddy’s going to have his hands full with three girls!
I have two big sisters and they both love me. They like to take turns holding me while I lay there and stare at them. They don’t like it when I start to fuss though!
When I was born I was about two pounds bigger than my sisters were when they were born. My mom thinks it’s because of her diet – she didn’t end up with any pregnancy weight gain either, which she is pretty sure is because of cutting out grains while I was in her tummy.
My mama had a really great surgery and was up and walking around within a day. All the nurses and everyone were really nice to us!
I’m a pretty mellow baby. I only cry when I’m hungry or if I want to snuggle. I LOVE to snuggle! But I’m okay in my chair, too. I usually sleep about 3 hours at a time but the other night I did a whole 5 hour stretch!
My Mama says it’s okay though, and even waking up to feed me in the middle of the night is easier for her than when I was in her tummy. She’s slowly starting to get caught up on things around here and sometimes I get to ride around with her in a wrap while she does stuff!
I love to just sit and watch what’s going on.
Yesterday I smiled at my mama for real twice! Today I did once. Mama says she can’t wait till she hears what I sound like when I laugh. I guess my big sisters both had funny sounding laughs when they were babies.
Anyway it’s time for me to go have my nap… I’ll talk to you all later!
P.S. Here’s some more pictures!
