So I’ve been keeping this little secret for the past nine months or so, and trust me when I say it has been incredibly hard to do so. Please join me in welcoming the newest addition to the Sweetnicks family…
Weight 7 lbs, 11 oz
Length 20-1/2 inches
Nicholas is beyond thrilled to be a big brother and has been very excited for “our baby” to arrive.
Behind the scenes:
Fierce carpal tunnel that set in during month four, to the point where I still only have feeling in my two little fingers, the rest have been, and still are, completely numb.
Huge ankles that swelled up nightly to the size of an elephant’s. I kid you not. I could actually feel them puff up at the end of the day.
Feet that went from a size 10 (which was big enough, thankyouverymuch), to a size 11.5 starting around month 6 or so. Do you know how many shoes that are in size 11.5? Yeah, not many.
My first, and second, zit in my entire life. Uh yeah, and there was that little wart on my finger that she brought with her when she first arrived.
An instant and nine-month-long repulsion to sushi and ribs, even the mere mention of them… blech.
Her compulsion to sit her little baby butt on my ribcage during the day for hours on end.
But relatively speaking, an easy pregnancy, as it was with Nicholas, and every single second was absolutely worth it for this perfection. Our little Princess.
