I can't believe I am writing this. In my heart of hearts, I hoped things might go quickly and even the midwife not make it, but I never imagined it would happen, especially after such a long, slow early labor. But friends and family can't believe it even more, and I'm afraid we are going to be the talk of the town--not all of it good, probably.
Our sweet baby girl, Lydia Grace, arrived safely into her daddy's hands, after 16 hours of prodromal labor and 1 hour of precipitous labor. We are all doing well. She is 9lb, 12 oz, 21 inches long, and with a 14.5 inch head (I only needed two stitches. DH did a good job!). She is such a sweetie, and I love being her mama!
Happy Wife since 12/31/05 ~ Blessed Mama to 2/8/09 and 6/11/11, with on the way due 2/24/14
Oh wow! She's so beautiful! I'm so glad things worked out this way!
Congratulations! Glad labour finally picked up. :p I just showed DD your baby and she nearly split my eardrums with her piercing "AWWWWW, she's so CUUUUUTE!"; I do agree! Well done! :)
If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.
Soooo adorable! Congrats!
Beautiful baby, congratulations!
This is exactly how my last arrived, 45 minutes ahead of the midwife, caught by DH. We loved every second of it!
Oh yum!!!!!!!! I'm so jealous of those cheeks and chubby arms!!! I can't wait!! Enjoy her! I hope the town gossips go easy on you!

Ohhhhhh... she is just so sweet and chunky! I love her little chubby arms! If I didn't have my own newborn I think I would have spontaneously ovulated looking at her. :) I'm thrilled that your birth this time around was so much shorter than your last one! An hour of labor! Wow! You are a rock star! Enjoy your sweet girl and your babymoon!
