she's here!!

i'm so pleased to tell you all that my daughter has arrived!!!

she came yesterday, monday, september 17th at just before 8 in the morning. it was a smooth 6 hour natural labor. (nice compared to my THIRTY hour labor with bb. oy vey.)

she's lovely and perfect. she was 8lbs., 2 oz. she is nursing well and sleeping tons. so far she's "pretty chill" as hubby would say. it's been a very. . .peaceful experience so far.

bb has been a great older brother. hubby made me agree not to share names, so we'll use her initials, too, which are cm. bb has given cm many'a kiss today. he's been really sweet. he likes lifting my shirt for me when it's time to nurse. what more could i ask for? sure, i know this will not always be the way of things for him, but for right now, it's really nice.

anyway, here's a couple pictures of my cutie-patootie.

thanks for the well-wishes and support!!
