Elora was born Oct 9 at dinnertime. 8#1oz at birth, 21.5" long. my longest and lightest babe out of 4! she`s been a joy, very smiley. nursing is going well enough, just soreness. i had her on my bed with dh holding me from behind and the midwife in front. i had horrible prodromal labor for days and the midwife even camped out on our couch with our dogs one night only to be sent home in the morning. the labor itself was kinda traumatic for me but i am satisfied with how it all was handled. i thought it was more prodromal until i felt like pushing and was feeling really hot. i`ll write up the details later. we are all well and nighttime is actually great!

drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.

I really like her name!  I hope the stomach flu has cleared out of your house and nobody else fell victim to it!
