Thank you ladies! I can't stop staring at her that's for sure. 💜

I can't wait to see all the babies when they decide to make their appearances.

Our little boy. Born at 38 weeks (thank you Jesus). 7 lb, 8 oz, 19.75" long. He had a nuchal hand and nuchal cord. That was interesting to see!

What a cutie @DuchessTergie !

Just curious, was that a one-arm swaddle on purpose? At our hospital classes, they told us they don't like swaddling the baby's arms in because they use their hands so much in the womb as a comfort measure that they could get more fussy if their arms are swaddled and they can't play with their hands. So I thought one-armed swaddling might be a good compromise.

If I can tell a baby spent a lot of time in the womb with its hand by its face, I like to swaddle one arm in over the chest and up over the heart, then swoop the blanket over it and sort of tuck it in (helps to prevent breaking out of the swaddle), then I swaddle the other arm in bent, but with the hand free up near the chin. This way, it mimics the womb (things were tight in there), but baby doesn't flail and start to root until they need to nurse. I find if both hands are free, baby will start to root a lot, break out of the swaddle, and wake up.

The one arm is intentional. He prefers it and I like him to have a hand to suck on.

I feel selfish for checking out after the baby was born. The computer is not in a practical place, the chair is not the most comfortable for after birth sitting.

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!

OhMyGosh! She's so beautiful Happyday - what a great name!!! So glad for your beautiful little family!! You make me want to leave my placenta intact. It seems so womb-like and she seems so peaceful. I had planned to encapsulate, but maybe lotus it will be....
