Arrivals - The announcement thread - Page 15
Well, our Amelia arrived yesterday, four days "early", but decently of her, after we finished most all of our major to do list. :-)
She was born at the freestanding birth center April 15, 2012 at 8pm. 7 lbs. and 1/2 oz. 20 inches long. That's 11.5 oz and 1 in smaller than her big brother was. :-)
She's just a beautiful light in my life right now, and I'm so happy she's finally here. It was hard work (19 hours of labor, 25 minutes of pushing), with some stalled periods and a really rough transition, but we all made it though.
Meet our daughter... :-D
We arrived home just after midnight, and so far everything has been smooth sailing. I'm so glad today was a weekday and the nanny was here to make sure DS was well looked after. DH, DD, and I were able to get all the napping in we needed, which has been a huge blessing. Speaking of... I really should be napping now. ;-)
Perri arrived Sunday April 15th at 12:46pm. She was 38w6d...my earliest! She weighed 7 pounds 8.4 ounces and is 19 inches long.
I am so happy to have her here. She was such a surprise but I can't imagine not having her. Her siblings are in love! She is my smallest yet by 1/2 a pound but if I would have gone to 40 weeks she would have been almost 8 pounds I think.
