Worth The Wait

After all the waiting, her arrival was certainly fast. 3 and a half hours total and she had arrived. I proudly present my sweet baby daughter, born a little before noon on Tuesday the 5th of December. She weighed 9 pounds even, and is 21 inches long.

Her name will not be published here, but I'm happy to share it privately if I have your email address. We are all back home as of this morning. Blogging will be sparse for a while, I do believe!

Awwww, a tear escapes my eyes. My little one that came on Dec 1 (1987) was the exact same size. What a gorgeous little gourd. Hard to believe she could cause such anxiety over her arrival, isn't it? And now it is all forgotten, as it should be. I hope all the pumpkins are cuddling in for quite awhile.

WOW! Welcome to the world, little beauty! May you be blessed with a long life full of hand-knit sweaters.

I have to say that I think a 3.5 hour labor is pretty good compensation for the extended gestation. Better than than the reverse, I think.

Congratulations! She sounds a lot like my daughter, born exactly 3 months before yours, who waited till the last minute before deciding to come on out (Though, she was even slow on the decent. I wasn't lucky enough to have your three hours.).

Anyway, enjoy!
