So that baby finally showed up – 6 days late like Carter.🙂 Here’s her announcement –
June Ryan Taylor
Born: May 31, 2016, 3:18pm
Weight: 8lb, 13oz
Height: 21 1/2 in
Both Mom and baby June/Junebug/Junie are doing great. Big sister, Maevy, and big brother, Carter, are already fighting over her. She passed her newborn hearing test. Hooray!
Amy & Ryan
Origins of her name: June – really was just inspired by the cuteness of possible nicknames and the time of year. It’s derived from the Roman goddess – Juno, protectress of women and marriage – which we also thought was awesome. June‘s middle name, Ryan, is obviously an ode her to Daddy, a name Amy has always loved.
We’re past the 1 week honeymoon phase and she’s a little more high maintenance, but overall – she’s still a pretty chill baby who is easily soothed (or I’m just getting better at this baby thing). Another giant baby, she was back to birth weight 5 days after birth and is already doing 4- 4 1/2 hr sleep stretches at night.
Delivery was traumatic as usual, but fine. Yes, I was able to delivery naturally/unmedicated with just some major help from nitris and the volunteer doula. Midwife and nurse were great about not giving me an IV and only doing intermittent (at best) monitoring of the baby. I walked from the delivery room to the recovery room – and we were out of there just 26 hours after delivery. :) Man, I love Vanderbilt.
I made it back to my prenatal/postnatal yoga class today. It was wonderful.🙂
2 hours after birth –
Day 2- at home
Day 3- at the grocery
Day 5- new family photo
Day 8 – milk drunk smiles
Day 10 – adorable sleep
We’re all going to still need a little more time adjusting to life with 3. As expected, there’s no real schedule yet – so things can get a little stressful when it seems everyone is crying/whining at the same time. We’ll figure it out.🙂
Oh and maternity clothes are officially gone – mostly to my baby sister, Robyn, and the rest were off my porch in 10 min via a giveaway on the neighborhood facebook group.🙂
