she’s here!

hello out there in blog-land… sorry to keep you waiting…

our daughter is HERE! she was born on monday, january 25th after a 4 day induction and 7 hours and 42 minutes of pushing… with help from our two amazing doctors pushing on one end and using forceps on the other end, and my amazing dakota and our doula cheering me on… we were able to avoid a c-section. the little gal weighed in at 8 pounds 12 oz!

dakota and i are both exhausted… i am still quite sore and kind of shaky… we are in love with the little wonder who has come to live with us – and demand 24/7 milk bar access…

perhaps dakota will blog on the details for us in the upcoming days. i have no energy left to blog with 😉

congrats to the other new little ones who made their arrivals during the time we were off-line. it has been quite a flurry of babies.

    I see that you have the same crib as I do (x2, but different color). You have chosen wisely! Middle of the night sheet changes are much easier with this mattress than a usual heavy one, as long as you know the trick to line up the seam along the midline.

    Enjoy your daughter!!!

  16. Yeah! Congratulations on your new arrival!

  17. Good lord, you get the prize – 4 days!! I promise I will never complain to you again about my lack of epidurals. Much, much love to your family!
