I just wanted to let you all know ;) She will actually be 2 weeks old tomorrow! She is a wonderful baby, so easy going and a fantastic nurser :) She was born on Sept 20th at 1:17pm, 8 pounds 3 ounces and 19.5" long.

 

We had a very tramatic birth experience that I am not yet up to sharing but I just wanted to share that she is here and she is doing great :)

Congratulations!!! joy.gif What a beautiful name.

 

I'm so very sorry you had a traumatic birth. I had a really tough time with my first DS' birth; it can be so hard to deal with. I hope you are able to heal in every way you need to.

Congratulations on Olive's birth, and I'm glad to hear she's doing so well.  I wish I knew any way to help you with the difficult birth, but I don't.  Hugs for you, anyway!
