Eight days ago actually, on Friday the 13th. She was due on the 21st. She was 8 lbs even.

We went in @ about 11:00 pm the night before and were told to go home as I was only 3 cm and the cervix was very hard to reach. We were back 2 hours later, I was 4-5 and cervix was still hard to reach. I stayed and gave birth 5 hours later. She came out in 3 pushes, with no tearing.

She nursed immediately and with lots of enthusiasm. She hasn't slowed down since.

She is amazing and just beautiful!!!! At first she looked just like oldest DS, then she looked like youngest DS. Now she looks like herself!! The boys are in love with their new sister. They are so helpful, sometimes too helpful.

Eventually I'll post some pics, but I'm very bad about getting my pics uploaded. So it may take me a while.

Heather, mama to

Congrats! My 3 year old is still waiting for her penis to grow! That's what happens when you have 2 older brothers.
