Baker Bea | 1 month

Where have these last four weeks gone?  I feel like we just came home from the hospital and there is no way we have been new parents to this perfect baby girl for that long already. She really is perfect–as I’m sure all parents would say of their sweet new baby. This has easily been the best (and most difficult) month of our lives but I wouldn’t trade this time with Baker Bea.

Baker’s Hospital Pictures

I shared some of Baker’s hospital pictures in her announcement post but they are all so sweet, I just had to share them all.  I look back at our time in the hospital as such a sweet time, even the crazy second night we had. I will always remember it as a time of getting to know our beautiful baby girl and these pictures represent her so perfectly, even though she’s already changed so much.

If you live in the upstate of South Carolina, I highly recommend Bella Baby Photography out of Greenville however, they do have locations across the US.

Baker Bea’s Birth Story

I intended to have Baker’s birth story up much sooner than now but life with a newborn is hard ya’ll! Baker likes to be held and Mama likes holding her so our days go by so quickly that I often realize that I haven’t even brushed my teeth or had lunch before Cory gets home in the afternoons. Can this phase just stay forever??? It’s such a sweet, sweet time. But I’ve slowly been working on Baker’s birth story because I don’t ever want to forget the day our baby girl was born.

If you aren’t into birth stories, you probably wanna skip this one. It’s long and detailed (don’t worry, it’s not that detailed) but it won’t hurt my feelings because this is really written down for me to always have, while it’s fresh in my mind.

Baker’s birth story actually started on Thursday evening, July 7th. If you recall from my last bumpdate, I was in the hospital for over a week before being induced at 37 weeks. The staff at the hospital were worried that I would have a long delivery since I had been contracting all week and hadn’t dilated past 1 cm during that time so they decided to start me on a medicine called Cervidil to help soften my cervix.
