Well, little Cordelia Elizabeth Ann arrived early at 12:21pm on Tuesday, 11/14/2006 after 2.5 hours of labour. She was supposed to be around 37 weeks according to my "sonogram due date" which I never believed, but it looks like she is probably closer to 36 weeks. Luckily she weighed a good 6lbs, 10ozs and is 19.5inches long. I was released within a few hours from the hospital (actually the free standing birth center associated with the hospital) despite the fact that the staff thought I was nuts for wanting to go home right away. I wanted to get home and introduce my boys to their new baby sister!!!

I'll write more details later, but right now I am just getting re-used to typing with a baby attached to me (yeah, Mei Tais and pouch slings!!!!!).

If you would like to see some pics of her go to : http://new.photos.yahoo.com/jen_rack...60762341216040
