My beautiful little girl was born on Thursday morning. She's happy, healthy, and hairy (in the good way).

On that day, we had 14 hours of labor, 5 different nurses, 3 false alarm trips to the doctor, 2 hours of sleep, and 1 unnecessary ultrasound. It was like living out a strange Christmas carol. With placenta.

We were almost snowed in at the hospital, but were discharged between storms.

Mom, baby, and I already setting into a routine, and can't wait to hold her at any time of day or night.

This is wonderful news and best wishes to you all.

So, do we just call her 'baby' or did she also get blessed with a name? Weight, length,.....inquiring minds want to know....w00t!

Awww....Matt! That's just so awesome. Good times, these be...good times. :) I love kids of all ages. There is something very miraculous though about a new baby. So wonderfully perfect. *sigh*

And here I thought I didn't believe in miracles. But that's what they are, huh?

I demand a photo at your earliest convenience, Daddy.

Maryn, happy for you

Thanks to all for your warm wishes!

She does have a name, and does have mass and was a measurable length.






JK - Her name is Olivia, and she was a hair short of 7 lbs, 20 inches.

Congratulations many times over. Nothing like a new baby to renew our sense of wonder, despite the sleep deprivation. And somehow life looks so much different when you are no longer the last link in the chain.
