Our precious little Viviana Laine Soler was born on January 26, 2012 at 10:19PM.
She was 8lbs and 6 oz and 20 inches long.
It was the most rollercoaster labor of my life..... but worth every second of it!
Welcome to the world my precious little angel!!
Although I was induced, I started laboring on the way to the hospital. After getting pitocin and my water broken, I waited in numbed (epidural) bliss!
After a loooong day, it turned out Viviana was (forgot the medical term) but forehead up (head facing up, instead of down) and she couldn't get past ther cervix... so I had my first C-section (I was so scared, but during the actual procedure God gave me such a peace)..
Here is my faithful, amazing, encouraging, praying labor team! Elizabeth, Julie, Dad & Mom, what would I do wtihout you?? I love you guys!
Of course that teams includes my wonderful hubby, the best Dad ever, the man that was born to be a father to a baby girl!
And her adoring Auntie Julie who always takes my babies first amazing pictures (hopefully to come soon)!
Vivi's amazing, best older brothers who were simply in awe of her (for a few minutes, then they wanted to dig into the big bag of candy they brought with my parents- Lol)!
My sweet kids. My heart melts!
We had so many loving visitors, I'm so sorry if I forgot to take your picture! We were so blessed by your visit & love & prayers & sweet flowers & balloons!
My dear friend Gale
My amazing sis, Julie
Viviana's "second mama", sweet Evelina
Viviana's awesome Mimi & Papa- with their first Grandaughter!
Look at those three angels. Does it get any better?
Judah was soooo much more into being a big brother than I expected him to, since he's not been into babies like Quinn has been. Judah is about to burst with pride. The boys are going to be her little protectors!
The best, loving Mimi
Sweet Tio & Miss Kat
So much love!
My dear friend, Auntie Beth
The best, most helpful Daddy!
Viviana's Godparents- awesome Uncle Will & Aunt Rebecca
We got home last night, the boys couldn't get enough of Viviana!
Viviana has been amazing! We're working thru the normal nursing stuff, but so far she has been the best sleeper, the best disposition, so calm and feminine right from the start! She sleeps sooo well, which I pray continues! My heart is so full.
It's so true. When you have more kids, love isn't divided, love multiplies. I couldn't have more love for my sweet little amazing girl who was that missing puzzle peice from our family. We are so blessed!
Thank you for all of your prayers & loving words!
