Little Love is here


Our little miracle arrived Sept 13 in the evening. She is every bit as wonderful as we'd imagined.


After two nights in the hospital, we came home and have been busy since getting to know each other. And learning all about parenthood and understanding our daughter.


It's been... hard. Everyone tells you it will be, but for me the "surprise" was more how hard it has been to manage both my own body's healing/changes and the needs of our little baby. All things considered, we're doing pretty well. Especially on nights where little love sleeps 5 hours straight (this happened last night!!).


It's also been... fun. She is absolutely beautiful and interactive, and came out of the womb eyes wide open. And has been exactly the personality I'd envisioned her to be from her movements in my belly (stubborn, strong, a bit diva ;).


I have started and saved her birth story so many times... just haven't gotten to finish it. So I thought I'd atleast update you all to know she's arrived, and that we're doing wonderful.

Congratulations!! So happy for you all. And it is really hard. And it gets easier and more fun and harder all at the same time! But especially the healing part definitely gets easier.
