I know, I know…you’re probably thinking, “but wasn’t she born like 4 months ago?!?” Yes, yes she was. But better late than never!
I wrote out about 2/3 of the birth story within the first month, but kept putting off filming because I wanted it to go really well, with no interruptions. I finally realized that wasn’t going to happen! I ended up filming while baby-wearing Skyler and she woke up part way through. But later when we look back at the video it will be fun to see her taking a part 🙂

In the video I refered to a few moments that were really sweet, but didn’t get a chance to actually insert any photos in the video. So here are some of those precious memories!
This first one is a favorite of mine! It was taken by an OR nurse when Skyler was only about 10 minutes old. She was doing skin-to-skin time with Daddy while I was still being stitched up from the c-section.
When Peyton was born we took photos of her with a stuffed fox when she was only a day or two old. That fox is now known as Mr. Fox and is Peyton’s best friend. We wanted to do the same thing with Skyler, so here she is with her giraffe. I hope her giraffe is as loved and treasured as Mr. Fox is!
One of my favorite family photos was taken when Peyton came to the hospital to meet Skyler. She was fairly standoffish at first, but after a little while was willing to sit on the bed with me and take some pics.
The next day I had Jeremiah take a few photos of me snuggling Skyler and this is one of my favorites.
And lastly, our going home photo! Skyler was so little that we couldn’t get the carseat straps tight enough. I ended up taking the straps out and putting them back on in a way that is usually only needed for preemies.
Skyler will be 5 months old on September 25th and is doing great! She has a great big smile that she shares when she isn’t busy being cranky. She is in the 30th percentile for weight and 50th for height. She can roll over and is trying to learn to crawl already…I’m not ready for that!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed hearing about Skyler’s birth and seeing some of our favorite photos! I’ll be back next week with a quick freezer meal idea. Have a wonderful weekend and happy sewing!
