She's Here!!!

Baby girl has arrived! I think she's the cutest thing ever, but I'm sure all moms think that.


She weighed 6 lbs, 5.5oz, and was 19.5 inches tall. She's tiny! She is swimming in her newborn clothes, so I'm glad I got a few newborn sized things (some people advised just to let her wear big 0-3 mo clothes...but I think they would just fall off). I need a few premie hats, since her little hats just fall off - they are way, way too big. She is a huge snuggle bug, and is most content snuggled up with someone.

What a blessing during Holy week. She is such a great miracle and gift from God. After all of the drama about my preeclampsia, I was blessed to be able to deliver naturally at our birth center. It all went very quickly... I started labor at about 10pm at home, had a handful of contractions that were 10 minutes apart, then they immediately went to 4 minutes apart. We got to the birth center at about 2am and they were 2 minutes apart. She was born at 6am on the dot. Ha - her punctuality did not come from her parents! I'll post the full birth story later. For now, we're just working on learning to eat. It's been more difficult than I anticipated. I'm so thankful hubs is here to help - he is having to help me feed her more than I thought he would. I'm doing fine, but Snuggle Bug would rather snuggle and sleep.

Praise God for his merciful love.

Kellie, I just found out from some folks at RRC about your wonderful news. I had to have them send me your blog info so that I could tell you myself--Congratulations! She is gorgeous. Danielle was 7 lbs. 7 oz. and seemed tiny, so I can only imagine what your little girl feels like in your arms. On Good Friday Dani turned one, and already she is wearing 18-24 mo. and 2T clothes. I pray for your sake your little girl stays a baby longer than mine did! God bless you and your beautiful family.

Thanks all!

Selima - I probably won't be posting her name on this blog... my hubby is a huge privacy guy, and that's just too much.

Either way, her most common name right now is Little Bean. =)
