She has arrived!

Shayna is here! She was born on Valentine's Day and is teeny tiny-- 6 lbs. 3 oz., 18.5 inches. Although the labor was quick (5 hours start to finish) it hurt like hell! I got to leave the hospital 12 hours later so I'm thankful for that. Adjusting to three kids is going to be challenging. Bedtime last night was a three ring circus of needs and I had only gotten two hours of sleep since the delivery. Then the baby screamed for 4 hours, starving because breastfeeding isn't going so well. At least the big kids slept through the night. Ron had to work today but is off for a week and a half now and my mother-in-law was able to help today. I'm looking at a few tough days ahead with the sleep deprivation and adjustments but hopefully we'll all make it just fine! At least seeing Talia and Alex with Shayna is its own reward... Wish me luck!

Mazel Tov - and I like the name! I don't remember how I found your blog but I love reading about your crafts projects, recipes, etc. - I am so not crafty but appreciate what others can create! Love your recipes and since I'm a huge reader, I like that you post books you've read...hope you're feeling good and hope the kids go easy on you until things get a little bit easier.
