Announcing....

The newest member of our family: Shortcake.

There was some worry about how big she was going to be, and after an ultrasound guessed she'd be around 10 lb 13 oz, we were wheeled into the OR within an hour or so. At 1:30 PM yesterday, she was here. She weighed in at 9 lb 7 oz. 3 oz smaller than her brother, but no less cute!

We are in love. I am happy, and have been up and walking around and showered and walking around and feel human again, if a bit tender. And sleepy. Mommy is going to nap while she can.

Happy Birthday (yesterday) Shortcake! More details to come later!

Welcome little baby!! Can't wait to hear more!

I'm so glad to hear that you're up and moving already - that is the KEY to a quick and easy C recovery.

Enjoy your family!

So so happy for you! Glad you are up and moving...I remember being uncomfortable, but it was nothing compared to those last few weeks of being pregnant! :)

Love you!!!! Can't wait to see a MILLION pictures!
