baby girl


























My longest labor yet.. 11 hours of contractions and lots and lots of pushing. Baby girl was 7 lbs 10 oz 19 inches long. Born at 10:08 4/1/2011 in our living room ( planned home birth). One day before my due date and 2 days later than her brother and sister. She is nursing like a champ and slept great last night. I woke her up to nurse every 2-3 hours. Keira seems to like her and Israel not so much! No name yet but we are working on it! :o)

Congratulations Tanya and Mike! She is a cutie pie and shares a birthday with Isobel. Gotta watch out for those April Fool's day girls- they are tricky! Glad to see you all doing so well!
