Baby Girl

She's here!

Nile was born on Tues. March 23 at 6:30 a.m., weighing 7 lbs. 9 oz. and measuring 20.7 inches long.


As I was nearing the "pushing" stage, I saw out of the corner of my eye that the nurse had written the following, minus the actual time, weight and length, on the opaque bathroom door:
It was pretty exciting and really encouraging to realize that this was it, she was going to be born TODAY!
 
 






We are having so much fun with her already, she is so sweet. I feel bad for thinking that she did not look cute in her ultrasound pictures, because I am totally in love with her now and I have that parent syndrome of knowing that she is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! :)

She is such a joy, and I feel really transformed by parenthood already. I will share the details of her birth in the next post. She's sleeping right now which means I should be sleeping, too!

I had a feeling since you had not posted in a while that she might be born! She is a cutey...and I must admit, the 3-d images freaked me out a little and I thought, I don't think I want to do that! However, she is extremely cute and you look so happy.

I knew you would transform and realize that you were already ready to be the best mom ever! I look forward to finding out more about her and the whole delivery process!
