Verity Rose is here!!

Verity Rose arrived (10 days late) on 4/23/13. I went to my midwife and was informed that her fluid levels were low and she wasn't doing as well as we had hoped in-utereo so we were sent to the hospital to be induced. I was very unhappy about this, as I planned to do everything naturally as I had with Ivy. After being administered pitocin, I went into crazy hard labor and made it through without ANY pain medication whatsoever. I seriously thought I was dying and there was no way I would survive it. After only an insanely intense 4 hours later with 12 minutes of pushing, Verity came into the world screaming like a banshee! She was perfectly healthy in every way! After about 20 minutes, I hopped off the delivery table and walked to the recovery room on my own (a benefit of doing things without pain medication).

It's safe to say that Ivy is absolutely thrilled to have her little sister. She is the most helpful (almost) two-year-old that ever lived. Ivy fetches diapers, wipes, blankets, binkies, throws away dirty diapers, covers up her sister with her blankie, and is absolutely gentle and sweet with Verity. I couldn't be more impressed with her - she is a perfect Mama's little helper and not jealous in the least.

Is it possible to have twins two years apart? I really have to label their baby pictures well because there is no way I am going to be able to tell which is which years down the road!!

In doll related news: I hope to be blogging more dolls again soon with the moving to a new state/new baby section of this year complete. Ivy's birthday is May 8th and we decided to get her a KidsKraft dollhouse since her Monster High girls and her own Barbies have been running amok with no place to live!! After all the hard work of becoming a big sister this year - I think she deserves a big present. I hope to take pictures and let you all know what I think about it once it arrives, is put together and presented! I've been curious about these dollhouses for some time....

Verity Rose looks like such a love! It's so cute to see Ivy take such a loving hand with Verity. I'm impressed you were able to give birth natrually! I don't think I would be able to do that. Can't wait to see the KidsKraft dollhouse.

Congratulations on the birth of your new bundle of joy! And super congrats on doing so naturally!!! I agree, they both look identical in their baby pics...both are lovely!

I purchased the kids craft house at a thrift store last year and I love it. There are so many rooms. I have yet to customize it, but plan to do so real soon.
