I am happy to announce that as I write this post I am sitting here with a perfect healthy little baby girl in my lap. Born 7 lb 1 oz, 20.5 inches long on 3/18 - it was the most incredible moment of my life and continues to provide a daily joy like nothing else I have ever felt.
Labor and delivery went better than it had any business going and she did end up coming out the normal route without complications. We've had some minor issues postpartum but nothing huge. I apologize that it took a week to post but this is literally the first time I have had a chance to sit at a computer, but thats just because I have been so busy falling in love with this little one.
I will post the full story later when I have another moment - right now I get to go feed her again :) I am so lucky.
