One Week Old!

Baby Peach has been with us "on the outside" for just one week! She seems somehow older and wiser than that, don't you think?

And continuing the tradition from Baby Bean, here is her very own "measuring quilt" from Grandma! (taken a few days ago; her belly button thingee already fell off!)

She's here!

Baby (Apple? Peach? Not sure of blog name yet) is here, safe and sound and solid! We're not that late with the update, SHE was late! 18 days, to be exact.

Whew. We were reaching the absolute limit on what care providers were comfortable with (ie days overdue; the midwife and family practice docs had passed us off to an OB) and probably would have had a scheduled c-section on the 17th (couldn't induce since Bean was born via c-section), but I handily went into natural labor on the very last possible morning! I was very happy about that. Things went really well, but in the end (after 14 hours of active labor and 3 of good pushing) we decided that perhaps she was just too big and had a c-section. Not my favorite experience, that surgery, but things are going well so far.

Baby is a good nurser, and a spitting image of Bean at that age. Facebook has been abuzz, but here's a pic or two to get started. Bean met her briefly yesterday, and was very gentle, if perplexed. More pictures later?

Blessed Be, baby is here!

Still here, waiting

Ah, the blog! Nothing like a little unannounced break, eh? Facebook has completely eaten my time and motivation for this, but maybe we will revive it someday... there will be more content, soon! But less time, likely. Hmm.

Anyway. We are well, I'm just really really really pregnant (was due a few days ago). Bean is growing up so fast, over 2 now, running, talking, sharing. WF is a great daddy, and I'm contemplating how to be a momma of 2 very soon!

Wish us luck, and hope to pop back in to post here when we have some more news!
