*(I’ve been dying to copy all you writerly types)
We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our beautiful new baby girl.
She arrived March 29th at 2:58 in the morning. She is 8lbs and 20 inches long.
We had a crazy journey getting her here…all the way to the end. After going into freakishly fast (and unexpected) labor I nearly gave birth in our car. As it ended up, after some mayhem, panic and a mix up about which hospital we were supposed to rendezvous at with our doctor, she was delivered safely into our exhausted, but very grateful arms.
She is gorgeous and perfectly healthy from what we can see thus far. She put us on a roller coaster ride from the very beginning and made sure we had a few more twists, turns and stomach drops at the very end. Hopefully this is the extent of her rebellion (but I doubt it).
We have yet to find a name for this wild child. When she peeps at us with her blue eyes she is surprisingly delicate (and innocent!) looking for someone so mischievous.
Once we have figured out her title, we can move on with — as the late Paul Harvey used to say — the rest of the story. I’ll keep you posted.
