As it is, she can still be Cary Jo. I just wish I could hand out cards that say, "Yes, this is a real name. We didn't make it up. It's not a uneek spelling; the "Y" belongs there. No, it's not CARROTS. I did not name my daughter CARROTS."
I am exhausted but over the moon. Not sore anymore, though the first day was pretty painful around about 4am when they had me stand for the first time. And then again a few hours later when I had to walk the halls. And then again a few hours later when I had to shower. But other than that it's been fairly great recovery. Having gone through the TAC surgery helped a lot in knowing what to expect. I'd possibly go so far as to say this is even easier thanks to the tiny human that's hanging out in our room.
Yeah, I think she's pretty cute. Full birth story coming soon (though really, it was a scheduled c-section that went off without a hitch...can it be THAT interesting?).
