My daughter arrived in a whirlwind of precipitous labor...hour and a half, 9 minutes in the hospital...she is 19.5 inches and 7 pounds 3 ounces, born at 37 weeks, 4 days.  Exhausted and over the moon.  She came on 1/11/11 at 3:26 a.m., both my birth sons were there and alert and excited.  Yeah!

Congratulations!  I love her name.  :)  If Liam had been a girl he could have been Calliope Celeste.  Enjoy your babymoon.

I haven't posted my birth story, but Abbott was born 1-10-11 after 9 minutes in the hospital also!  At 10:12am.  It was PAINFUL!  My other ds was about 15 minutes, so he had to beat him, lol

Congratulations!!
