Our little girl was born last night at 7:49. I was 37 or 38 wks, depending which DD we went with. She was 8 lbs even, 21" and is incredibly alert and whenever it's dim enough, is looking all over the place. She's got a little bit of brown hair (surprise!!) and is soooo tiny compared to DS when he was born, at one pound heavier. What a difference that can make!

Labor was a lot more confusing and less intuitive to me this time, took about 12 hours and just a few pushes. Her cord, like DS's was very short. It was tight on her neck and they couldn't get it over her head, so they wiggled her through it and had me "hurry" to push her body out. Recovery is going SO much smoother than with DS. Her little head is 13.5", where DS was over 15". I have two little skid marks, but they're not painful so far.

She has already poo'ed almost 10 times. DH says she is like a little caulk gun.



We have no idea what to name her.

No.....I'm heartbroken. DH's brother just sent us a message. He said, "People are telling me that's the name of Disney's Sleeping Beauty."

I guess we're back to the drawing board.

Aww, I still love Aurora Rose!!! The name of the Sleeping Beauty heroine is just Aurora as a princess, and Briar Rose as a peasant girl, just FYI. I would still totally go with the name. People are going to associate Aurora with Sleeping Beauty anyway, but who cares? My son shares a name with an annoying cartoon character, people mention it often, it's not a big deal to us.
