Thanks, all!! I'm glad you enjoyed reading my birth story. I still find it hard to believe that I was able to do it all naturally even though that was my plan all along. I have such a low threshold for pain, so doing what I did, I am so, so proud of myself!
Lou - Happy belated birthday!! Hope you had an amazing time celebrating your birthday with your precious angel, Chloe.
Stephanie - That's wonderful news!!! So happy for you. I'm afraid once I go back to work (when I finally find a job here in TX), I'll either get an evening or a night shift, which will be so difficult to handle with the new baby and hubby, but oh, so necessary. Because... (read below)

Besides, the sellers need some time to hunt for another house themselves, so it works out well for the both of us. We're paying much more money than anticipated with a $100,000 down (gulp), but we loved the house so much, we did not want to pass up on the opportunity. Needless to say, we're pinching pennies now. But yay, it's so exciting to finally be homeowners!!
I'm finally getting the hang of breastfeeding without having to pump, yay! No more mastitis or clogged ducts - no more pain and loving every minute of it! This girl LOVES to feed. Her growth "curve" is more like a vertical line on the chart. At her 1 month appt, she weighed 9 lb. 11 oz, which was up by 2 lb 11 oz since birth. She weighed 11 lb 1 oz (with light clothes and a diaper on) at her last appt, which was just a couple days ago. She's growing like a weed! Sharing a couple pics of her below..
Hope everyone else is doing well. I have so much to catch up on, but don't get enough time during the day to read and type a response
