the latest and equally as great

addie rae was born:
nov. 15 2008
8:06 am
8 lbs. 4 oz. (not to big thank heavens)
20 1/2 in. long
sorry it's taken so long i am having another lovely bout of postpartum depression. i was hoping it would run past me and not stop for a visit but it has and now i just have to work through it. so be warned that if you see me and ask about my delivery chances are i WILL fall apart. my poor kids don't know what to do with me but lucky for me my husband does. :) it'll just take time...hopefully not too much.

I'm sorry to hear you are not back to normal yet, it will take a little time, but it will go away! And the baby is beautiful.

Well, I must say you and Jeff have some mighty FINE baby making skills! Addie is just adorable...and you can see clearly that she is 100% Benintendi (cuz I think she looks like a mix of Jenna and Jeff) but that is my my opinion. I'm sorry sweets that you aren't feeling so great. I never really suffered from that so I can't say that I totally understand...but know that you are in my prayers, and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!! Congratulations again on your beautiful new daughter.
p.s. now I've got wanting a baby heavily on my mind, but honestly don't think its ever going to come to pass. man, you are so lucky!

Christy said...

Congrats Stacy. What a beauty! And I think many of us can relate with postpartum. Take it one day at a time. It'll go away (even though it may not seem like it now) and make sure you let someone know if it gets too bad...Keep posting pictures. We love to see those kiddies of yours!

congrats to you and Jeff on that beautiful baby Addie. I love the name.
Sorry to hear your not feeling up to par...it's so hard after the whole delivery bit then to go home to being a mom to the rest of the family and a newborn and not feeling good physically. You are one strong woman...Hang in there!

She is so flipping cute and precious!!! Congratulations!

I have lots of compassion for you, Im so sorry you are feeling that way. Looking back now I think I had some of that after Rustin but didnt know than. It can be a really hard time. It will get so much better Stacy. Reach out for help when you need it and that will make it a little easier. I am here if you need anything. Love you
