It’s a girl!
We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl on January 28, at 7:48 pm. She weighed in at 9 pounds even and 21.25″ long.
I will hopefully share her birth story soon, but for now I’ll just say that I couldn’t be happier with how her birth went. I was in labor for a total of about 15 hours, pushing for only 20 minutes or so.
Thanks to the hours of preparation and education, the support of Husband, and the help of a wonderful doula, I was able to have the unmedicated birth that I was striving for.
We named our tiny (or not so tiny!) babe Fiona Rose Marie. She was (is) absolutely perfect and healthy. She continues to be a wonderfully easy baby, sleeping well at night, nursing like a champ.
I know not everyone can claim such a good experience (both birth and the weeks following), we are praising God for our wonderful blessing and the gift of a smooth delivery and easy baby.
We’re settling in at home with little miss Fiona, taking hundreds of photos and relishing every moment.
