Quick Update

Just a quick update, while I work on the whole birth story thing...We have people over watching the Eag.les game!

  1. Ceci.lia weighed 6lbs, 7oz at birth and is 19 inches long.
  2. Her apgar score was 9 and 9!
  3. I can’t believe how much I want to hold her.
  4. I was given pitocin to start labor, and was able to go without an epidural until they broke my water – after that, the pain was just too much! Labor lasted about 11 hours, but unbelievably, I only pushed for 20 min.
  5. I’m feeling fine, just rather sore – I tore inside and have some stiches. Thank goodness she was tiny!
  6. DH is being fantastic and extremely helpful.
  7. I know my poor daughter is going to hear people sing that Simon and Garfunk.el song every time she tells people her name :)

i suspect that saying 'my daughter' is just as unusual and wonderful as saying 'my husband' - but neither equal the words 'our daughter'

20 MINUTES? I'm SO .... I don't know what. You were so so so lucky! I'm still having a hard time letting others hold Luke, even my husband. I don't ever want to let him go. Can you believe how much you can love another person?

Cecelia is a beautiful name.
