Eden Aileen was born This morning around 530 am. She is 9 lbs (plus some meconium she deposited when she came out) and 21 inches! We were expecting a MUCH smaller baby. We got our birth center birth and it was a hard and wonderful 9 hours. I'll post a birth story ASAP, but need to eat!!

She's such a doll. Squishy little cheeks. I just want to eat her up. I really hope we're able to get together in July. If I end up down there earlier for anything, I'd love to get my hands on her.

I just had to DDC crash to tell you congrats!!!


I have to be honest I love the name, but I am a bit biased since we share the same middle name.

Blessings to you all! She sure is a cutie!
