Parents of the Week: Emily and Doug

 Aren't new babies just the best? There's really nothing like them. They rest so peacefully (at first...), they have little chunker cheeks, and that new baby smell. 

On Friday, October 1, 2010, Emily and Doug welcomed little baby S. to the world. It sounds so easy doesn't it? Well, Emily labored all night and most of the day, but baby S. was knock, knock, knockin’ on Emily’s pelvis and was just not going to come out the good old fashioned way. So on Friday afternoon, baby S. entered the world via modern technology (C-Section)- healthy, beautiful, and perfect.

Right after birth, Baby S. latched on perfectly and spent some quality mommy-baby bonding time. Later, Emily, whose friends and family clearly live through real-life comparisons to television sitcoms, would sit through at least seven of the following conversations: ‘Hey- did you ever see that episode of ‘The Office’ where Pam has the baby and she accidentally nurses her roommate’s newbor-‘ ‘Yes.’

Emily and Doug head home from the hospital today, so leave them some love and encouragement in the comments. They are doing a great job so far. Isn’t this just the cutest little family you’ve ever seen?!

Fun fact: Emily is my sister :)

If you would like to be featured as an Avant Garde Parent of the Week or have someone you would like to nominate, please email me at deluna.jamie@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
