Bacon Baby has Arrived!

Hello Everyone! I haven't updated the blog in a while and thought you all would want to know the good news... Baby G has arrived! She was born on October 9th at 9:06 am after 10 hours of labor weighing in at a whopping 7 lbs 13 ounces and 21 inches long. Our original due date was October 20th, but I had a feeling she wanted to arrive early and boy did she ever! The above picture is of her immediately after delivery and the one below is of her and I immediately after. Isn't she a cutie? Well, clearly I'm biased, but even if I wasn't I'm sure I'd still think she's a cutie. ;)

This picture is after we got her home. She's just maxin' and relaxin'. 

So, what's up with the title of this post you ask? Well, I'm here to tell all the pregnant ladies as you get closer to delivery watch what you eat! The day before she was born I had a wonderful breakfast with lots of bacon. Immediately after pushing her out I started to smell a familiar smell. 'What is that familiar smell?' I thought to myself...then they placed her on my chest and it hit me - the familiar smell was bacon!! My amniotic fluid was scented in bacon and so was Baby G! 'No one warned me about this' I thought as I looked around the room wondering if anyone else noticed the bacony smell. (No one seemed to, but I can't be too sure they didn't. Most likely they did smell it but were polite and just didn't say anything, but who knows.) This is a warning to pregnant ladies everywhere, be very aware of what you eat before you deliver because it will come back to haunt you! My advice is - if you want to test out the folks doing your delivery eat something like bacon (meaning something with a distinctive smell...or just eat some bacon) and play Guess What I Ate This Morning in the delivery room.

Any who, I hope all is well with you all! Better get back to my little pumpkin....later gators!


  1. *howling* She is a doll baby. Good to know about the eating thing. *lol* I'll bet that was a shock.

  2. What a sweet little baby bacon!! She is so cute and absolutely precious! I had no clue about the amniotic fluid thing so I may just have to eat roses before I go into labor...

  3. Welcome baby G.

    Well done girl. She is a beauty.

    Short of not eating I don't see how this could be changed. The meat fat will carry scent. So if you had chomped your way through chicken that is what the kid would smell of. The only hope I can see would be to eat meat that people don't know. Alligator, Emu or Kangaroo. But I can foresee pretty horrendous dreams going that route.

  4. More pictures! More pictures! I had no idea that you could custom-scent your baby, but it makes sense. Maybe she'll grow up a bacon lover, then you can always tell her that sweet story!

  5. Congratulations! What a blessing and an exciting time!

  6. Baby G is beautiful!!! I'm so happy to read that you two are home. I hope you post more pics!

    And, we have the same sleeper-rocker thingy!!! I can see the design behind Baby G! Small world! :o)

  7. Are you going to mince a bit of bird for the child tomorrow.

    What the hell does a person whom isn't yank say about Thanksgiving. It must be like asking me to be thankful about the English for some.
