Our beautiful third daughter made her way earthside on Monday, April 9th 2007 at 5:43 in the morning!!!! She was five days overdue and we were all REALLY ready for her to appear. My mother and father were present at her birth, along with her brother and sisters and Daddy. She is a loooong 22 inches, a skinny 8lbs 2oz, and had a nice large head of 14 1/4 inches. She has a little bit of light brown hair and is a MASTER nurser already. We are all absolutely in love and it was an amazing birth experience. Elie and Isaac are completely enamored of her and Talia is still trying to figure the whole thing out.
I am completely in awe of our ability to create such a tiny and miraculous being. And the most mind boggling part is that she grew inside of me. She grew in me. I can only think of one thing cooler and that is getting to be her mom and helping her grow outside of me.
