During this entire pregnancy DD1 had been calling every baby she came across "little sister". I guess we should have listened to her!

Esme Caroline was born at 2:12am on March 5th. She was 8lb 2oz and 20 1/4 inches.

It was a hospital birth in location only: No meds, no interventions, no IV, etc. My knees are bruised from laboring on my hands and knees on the floor and I'm sore and a bit worse for wear elsewhere... but mostly doing just fine.

Babe and I are home and enjoying figuring out life as a family of four. Esme latched on perfectly her first try and is nursing like a champ. Big sister is polite and makes sure that baby gets her milks first before rushing in! Papa is doing an awesome job picking up the slack around the house and is treating me like a queen. Life is good.

Pregnant and/or Breastfeeding since 2005
Mama to two girls: 5/06 and 3/09
