On Thursday, January 25 at 1:06 a.m., Annalise Elizabeth FINALLY made her arrival Earthside. She teased her mom with 12 hours of laboring at the birth center Monday night (Jan 22), let her rest a bit Tuesday day and night (still with contractions every 15-20 minutes, though), and kicked it into high gear on Wednesday. Labor was harder than I ever could have imagined - an incredibly humbling experience. Still, I was successful in having the birth I wanted: drug-free in a birth center with only my husband and midwife in attendance.

We didn’t know the sex but EVERY stranger that I encountered insisted that I was carrying a boy. What a surprise when this little one arrived!

Here are some early pics:

love to all,
Katherine aka Mama

ETA: Here are more pictures of my cutie pie

I just wanted to say Congrats!! I had the same thing happen, everyone told me Stevie was a boy and turned out to be a girl. You will have the time of your life with that little one. I hope you are great and taking care of yourself and your little one!!

Your family is too cute! Welcome, Annalise!

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

Thanks, mamas. We're so in love! Nursing was a little rough for a few days, but I think we're both getting a hang of it. She's really prone to spitting up, though, so I haven't been able to enjoy nursing in bed too much. In time I hope!

I edited the OP with a link to more pictures. I love being a mama!

OMG! What a cutie pie! She is truly beautiful! I LOVE that picture with the fuzzy purple hat.

Man. My third child just turned one on Jan. 28th. You're making me want another one!

Ruh roh!
