Daisy is a bundle of kissable chubbiness. I love her cheeks! I love her lips!

Duchess, I love her everything! I don't know how, but I fall deeper in love with every breath she takes. Are you as high as I am these days? My heart is just bursting with joy and awe. Life is GOOD!

ForestLover- It's really not as gross or annoying as one would imagine. I did have a friend over yesterday and we were eating soup on the couch with the baby (and the placenta). At the end of her bowl of soup, my friend said, "I can't believe I'm eating with a placenta sitting within a foot from me." She sort of gagged when she realized this. But to me it hadn't even occurred to me!
She is absolutely calm. I've read that "lotus babies" tend to be calmer. But I've read that about so many things you can do for the baby, so I'm not sure how we can really tell why our babies are one way or another. She's just so peaceful.
There is no smell, which I find incredible. Well, actually there is a smell, but it's soft and sweet, like what she smelled like when she was born. You must be familiar with that smell...

Thank you, friends! I can't wait to meet your little people, too!

happyday, she is so beautiful and perfect. I've never seen a cord all dried up like that. Must be nice to be at home and have the freedom to decide everything. No nurses or doctors yelling at you about anything. I'm glad to hear your hormones these days are good ones.

It's very nice to be home, and owning this process. I'm so fortunate for my healthy pregnancy and abiding body.
She was born during a pretty heavy snowfall. We got about 12 inches the night she was born. To not have to drive 45 mins to and from the hospital was wonderful. To just be home to heal and arrive is a treat.

DAISY GRACE! Oh, how wonderful! I've been so looking forward to seeing her and finding out her name. She's glorious. How very sweet.

Happyday, I love how you describe your way of doing what is right for you. I was talking to my husband the other day and described somebody (or maybe our birth plans?) as "crunchy," and our five-year-old wanted to know what it meant. At a loss, I told him something along the lines of "people who do their own thing because that's what makes most sense to them," and since then, you should hear the people and things my kid is describing as crunchy. It makes me smile.

Things are insanely, deliciously sweet over here. The love hormones are FLOWING through everybody in the house.

Her pictures hardly capture her essence, but she's a beauty in them none the less!

Meet Daisy Grace (Sunshine) Gangelier. We'll introduce her to the world without the Sunshine, but it will be on her birth certificate. I think the love hormones attached us to that part of the name, but we don't want to come across too strongly as "hippies".

A funny. I posted to my Facebook account of her arrival, "Our little lady is now Earthside." Many people thought I named her Earthside. None (who really know me) really questioned it! lol. I guess I do my own thing more than I realized. Like keeping the placenta attached 2 days later!

Anyway, here she is!
She's beautiful! And the name! I went to PT this morning and my therapist, Dawn, shared that her middle name is Sunshine!

Mama to a dd 10/05; ds 3/09, dd 2/15 and two angels. Expecting another miracle 7/16!

She loves to snuggle up close to mama.
I love the second picture. She looks so chunky. But she's really so tiny.. And we are shocked to realize she won't have my brown eyes. How she skipped out on that I do not know.

She could still have brown eyes. My oldest two have blue, but my youngest got his dad's brown eyes, but it took a few months. They say that they will be whatever color they are going to be by 9-18 months.

And she does have beautiful chubby cheeks. So cute!

She has seen two separate pediatricians who both have said they aren't brown. When they shine the light in her eyes it admits a different bounce back color I guess. I don't understand it fully. But they both said they aren't brown. My sons eyes you could tell the next day his eyes were brown. It was very distinct. Either way I won't mind. She's beautiful : )

My third son's eyes started blue, then dark blue for a few months, now a very dark brown. Your daughter's look almost green, or is that just in the picture?

They look green possible hazle when the light hits them. But the pediatrician says she thinks either green or blue. Because hazle throws back the same color as brown when the light is shined in them.

Oh, Corrie, Joshua is so so beautiful! His little face with his sister! Unbelievable! And his LIPS! Oh my goodness. He is scrumptious.

Don't give it a second thought--"Yo" is an awfully gender-neutral name and she's lying there on a blue stripey blanket, after all! Funnily enough, just about everyone I know has suggested "Yoshi" as a nickname for Yoshiko, which would be great except that Yoshi is unmistakably a boy's name--like "Dan" as a nickname for Danielle. Hmm, maybe we're setting this kid up to be a tomboy.

Valerie, no, she is pretty sleepy, but I happened to get her in a rare wakeful moment. I seem to put her to sleep and her father wakes her up, so clearly that was a Daddy Diaper Change.
