I'm still in shock over the cheeks!

Big brother and Daddy with baby sister:

We've already spoiled her. It's hard to put her down. She's nursing well and doing fantastic. I'm doing pretty good too... a C section when you're healthy is completely different. I have no where near the pain I had last time. Maybe it's spinal vs. general anesthetic, or the combo of all the factors. My BP is still low... which I haven't heard an explanation for yet. When I'm up and around, it's around 100/60. When they woke me awhile ago, it was 84/40. I hope that's okay. Totally ironic.
