Courtney is 4 days old...

and I dared to step on the scale this morning before my shower. I'm happy to say that at 4 days postpartum, I'm down 15 pounds. For those of you dying to know how much I gained during pregnancy, I was up a whopping 42 pounds. So much for sticking to the 25-35 pound range.

And for your viewing pleasure:

i am sticking to my original thought that she totally looks like her daddy!!!! (but i DO think she is a good combo of you both).... it's AMAZING how much she'll change!!!! you think, "finally i can see what you look like." and then some time goes by and you're like, "ohh wow! you look nothing like the pictures of you at just a few days old!!!" it's so amazing and exciting!!! i know you two are just thrilled!!! start the scrapbook now.... because as time goes on, it gets harder and harder to keep uP!!!! i am SO behind on Taylors.... and poor lewie, i'm not even sure if he'll be getting one. hee hee.... he will, someday.... =)

keep the updates coming! she's a doll!!! =)

oh and as far as the weight gain, my sister gained much more than that. ;) everyone is VERY different, and being that you had higher blood pressure, i bet that played a huge part.... it'll come off, you'll see.... =)

i'm glad you're moving around a lot better!!!! the more you move around now, the better it heals!!!!

Congrats! Courtney looks as though she has a lot of personality. I think she has a lot of your features. Def a combination of both. She's such a beauty.
