Congrats. I just saw this thread now. (How did I miss it?). Happy Birthday Baby Girl. Good for you for getting some good rest. Remind me how good it feels to lay on one's stomach again. Until the milk comes in that is....

Congrats!!! She's beautiful! This is the first other mom on MDC that named their baby the same name we have chosen (that i know of, of course). (except we're spelling it Nora)

Anyway, she's wonderful and i think your hubby is amazing for catchin' her! can't wait to hear the story! Your other children are so beautiful, too!
