I finally have a few seconds to come over here and post- but just wanted to announce the arrival of Eleanor Olivia! She was born on April 19 at 10:24 am after a little over 2 hours of labor and is doing wonderful! She was 6 lbs 12 oz at birth and 20 inches long. She is nursing fairly well which is such a HUGE relief for me given my bfing problems in the past- I can't believe I am nursing a baby!

Here's a pic of the little sunshine:

So cute! Congratulations! I am glad nursing is going easier than expected for you. We had a rough start last time and I'm hoping it will be easier this time around.
