We are home from the hospital and doing pretty well! I am experiencing a LOT of swelling in my feet and legs from the c-section, so the time I can spend at the computer is very limited because I need to keep my feet elevated, but I wanted to post these (show off!) and let you guys know I am back! Not at 100% yet, but I'm getting there! Thank you so much for all your positive thoughts and wishes, I really appreciated it!
She is adorable! Congratulations and hope you are feeling well soon!
She's beautiful, what a doll. Congrats to you & your family. Spoil her, they grow up too fast. Take care of your self & Congratulations again.
Congratulations! She is gorgeous. She has such a sweet face. Give her lots of hugs and kisses, they really do grow up too fast.
Take good care of yourself.
So beautiful she made me cry! Hold her all you can ... they only stay "newborn" for about 20 minutes!
Wow she is a beauty, look at those cheeks (squishable) LOL do enjoy you new angel.
She is a lucky little girl to have you and Jon as parents. Give her an extra kiss on her forehead from all of us at CC.
. . . sooo precious . . . congratulations on your new bundle of joy . . .
How adorable is she?! C-sxn babies are always so perfect! (Of course, she'd be perfect, no matter how she was delivered.)
Congratulations to you and hubby.

CONGRATULATIONS KELLEY!!! She is beautiful!!! I hope your feeling much better soon~
She is absolutely perfect! Glad to hear everything is well and hope you are at 100% soon
how sweet. We just took down the baby crib today since we are totally done. Looking at her just makes me want to cry. How precious!
Oh Kelly she is so beautiful!! I love those cheeks - she reminds me of my DD when she was born (C-Section too). And I also agree with PP that C-Section babies are so pretty -
Give her lots of hugs and kisses from me!! And take care of yourself -- and enlist plenty of help - all you need to do is rest with elevated feet and take care of Ashley!
What a sweet baby you have there. Give her lots of hugs.
Congratulations! What a cutie patootie!

Congratulations Kelley! What a perfect little baby girl! Adorable! Just want to squeeze those little cheekies! Welcome to the world baby, another future cake decorators!
She is just precious! Congrats!! Best wishes for a speedy recovery. I had a c-section too.
Here is my little butterball, only 1 month old and already over 11 lbs!
My feet are STILL swollen from the c-section!! The only shoes I can wear are my 16-year-old son's size 10 flip-flops. It's embarrassing. The doctor says it's completely normal because of all the fluids they pump into you for the surgery, but I'd never heard of it before. Have any other c-section momma's had this happen?
Oh, Kelley! She's precious!!!! Congratulations!
As for your swelling, do you have any other problems/symptoms? I had swelling for 2 and a half weeks after my daughter was born but it suddenly went away for no explainable reason. She was preemie and by c-section and I was pumped full of magnesium sulfate. If the doctor says it's normal, then I guess we're supposed to trust that he knows what he's talking about, but only you know you're body and what's going on, so I hope it goes away soon. (Flip-Flops aren't the most comfortable shoes!) Keep us posted!
