After dropping G-ma off at LAX we went over to visit Daddy for a few minutes. Then back home I was hoping for she would go down for a nap but apparently she had other plans. At first Tira was like this
But with a little bit of dancing, singing, Mr Lion, and a whole lot of kisses she was like this
Aren't we gorgeous?!?! We left Daddy to go to sleep (he worked the grave yard shift that night). And made the drive to Costa Mesa to have breakfast with Amanda, Jessica, and Michelle. It was tons of fun, the food was great, and Tira was a little angel. She got a little fussy towards the end but I put her in the Moby and she was great. Here's a pic of us and Amanda (can you see her "bump"?)
and one of all of us,
After that we meet up with Nani and mommy and Nani got their eyebrows done. Tira was SUCH A SWEET GIRL for her Nani. Didn't yell at her once!! Tira loves to play patty cake with Nani:
The rest of the weekend was great. We played with daddy, hung out, had boobie, slept, and played more. It was nice being a family.

March 21, 2007 in the wee hours of the morning, before the sun or birds were up. Grandma, daddy, and I piled into the car and headed off to St Joseph's Hopital.
Once at the hospital we waited and waited and waited. Finally they got me ready. Nervous and excited I was went into the operation room. I was given a spinal block (like an epidural) and waited. While I was getting preped Mike was getting ready too. The next hour of so is blurry. But here's what happened next:
And then this:
We stayed in the hospital for 5 days. Tira was jaundice and I had lost a lot of blood. But eventually we made it home. Breastfeeding was our biggest challenge. After 10 visits to the LC, 2 bouts with mastitis (including a 2am run to the ER), a number of plug ducts, a ridiculous amount of pain, and a lot of support from grandma we are now nursing pros.
Tira is now 1 week shy of 5 months. She can almost sit up, roll from back to front, smile, laugh, "talk", get her mommy, daddy, and grandma to pick her up when ever she wants, and is starting to scoot. The next phase of her adventure is solid foods and her first trip to Thailand!
