Hi girls! Julia Mariana was born last Tuesday at 9:05am!!!! She weighed 3.610Kg, and measured 51cm. She has tons of black hair and is terribly cute (at least for us!!). It was an "almost" unmed birth. But that is a long story, and I'll post all about it as soon as I get some time. Right now things are a bit crazy. Fede has a cold, so the pedi advised us to keep him away from the baby as much as possible and to try to maximize hygiene measures... He admitted it's kind of a mission impossible, but apparently a viral flu is somewhat dangerous for a baby of only a few days... Perhaps because of that, or perhaps because my hormones are crashing down, I´ve had a few bouts of baby blues... Right now I was crying about all this scary negative feelings (not being able to be a good mom for both kids, getting real PPD, missing Fede's baby stage (?!?!?!?)...) I really hope this all goes away and I start feeling like myself soon! I realize this ends with a depressing tone... But don't worry, I am happy about my new baby, just trying to adjust a little bit!

Mari! Congratulations on your little girl. I hope the baby blues pass quickly and you settle into your new routine easily. Dealing with the hormones, getting a handle on two little people - I'm sure it's tough at first. Try to be kind to yourself right now. You're doing great.

Edited to add - She is lovely!
