We are so excited to announce the arrival of our baby girl, little miss Lucy Clare Albert! She was born July 18th at 7:38 am, weighing in at a perfect 6 lbs 12 oz & 20.5 inches long.
It has been the craziest week! I was induced on Saturday morning at 5 am, and 50 hours later, after almost two hours of pushing….Our Lucy was born! She was taken away from me right after I had her due to some breathing and blood sugar issues, and that was by FAR the hardest thing I have ever experienced. Ever. Not getting to hold your baby after all of that work is absolutely heart breaking. Luckily she figured out her breathing nice and quick and was off oxygen in no time! She had an IV in her head to regulate her blood sugar, and that definitely was not fun to see at all. But a day later, our baby girl was good as new and healthy as can be! I’ll share my entire labor and delivery story soon, but for now I am just trying to soak up all the newborn baby snuggles I can get:) I never knew a love like this existed, she is absolutely everything, and her dad and I are completely smitten!
