Joyce November 7, 2010 at 8:59 am

Heather, please make sure to maintain your iron levels after giving birth; Korean mothers, after giving birth and also on birthdays, often drink a soup called miyeokguk, which is basically a seaweed soup that is made with either vegetable or water, seaweed, salt, and sesame oil for taste. It is packed with a high iron content to replenish what you lost to give birth to our precious little girl.

This is a link that I could find for miyeokguk that looked simple and would do the trick:
http://koreanfood.about.com/od/soupsandstews/r/miyukgook.htm

In the picture, your husband looks like he fell in love all over again, and your Mom has a wicked hat in the picture(?) ^______^. Congratulations on your newborn daughter!

HEAB November 13, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Joyce,
Thanks for the advice. My doula told me the same thing – to keep my iron levels up! πŸ™‚

j November 7, 2010 at 8:38 am

Oh my what an incredibly gorgeous name… and what a gorgeous baby! Congrats!

kayla November 7, 2010 at 8:33 am

CONGRATULATIONS Heather!!!! I am so Happy for you and CD. You will both be amazing parents and what a precious name. Thank you so much for letting us all in on this journey. xoxo

Melanie November 7, 2010 at 8:32 am

Emily Elizabeth @ Kisses for Breakfast November 6, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Oh my goodness, I LOVE her name!!! Summer was at the top of our baby names list and we had Juliet as a middle name option as well. I love it! We had about 6 names we couldn’t decide between and we read them to her right when she was born and she looked up when we said Annabelle (twice) so we figured that was it. You look fantastic and I’m glad you and your family are doing well! (Fun you can say “family” now) Please don’t respond to my post – enjoy your baby! Everyone told me to enjoy each moment because the time is gone before you know it – they were right. πŸ™‚

Oh my goodness! One of your recent blog posts made me think you were going soon – something about how you were eating lots of ice cream I think. Congratulations!!! And good choice too on being brief and then spending more time with your little Summer – I don’t regret any of the times I’ve done that these past 11 months with my girl. At the same time, I look forward to reading more about your birth experience – whenever and whatever you decide to share about it. πŸ™‚
