You did pull pregnancy off like a pro- both times. Good Job! :)

Sheesh I hope my pregnancies are as smooth as yours! Sorry, I was probably one of the ones that ALWAYS asked "how are you feeling?" I just never know what to say... Skylar is SO beautiful! We are so glad you have your sweet girls!

Oh you are a lucky girl! Your labor sounds like cake. I must say...I'm a little jealous. Mine was the complete opposite...24 hours of labor followed by a c-section. I'm broken:) But very happy for you! In that case...you should probably have even more kids!!

You look amazing after you just had her! I hope I can say all those good things about pregnancy when I get around to it!
