She made her appearance at home on Wednesday morning at 8:35, weighed in at 7 lbs even, 19 1/2 in long. Her birth is truly a miracle... she was an unexpected frank breech, almost unassisted (midwife made it right after her body was born) and her head was deflected and was stuck in me after her body was born, for about 2 minutes. I'll be posting her birth story hopefully soon. I'm getting around to processing everything that happened and writing it down. We are all absolutely in love with her :

Just born
