Where there was no person, now there is one!

I've taken a rather long break from blogging. We've been busy. I hope this is a reasonable excuse.
This is Ada Christine. She took one year of TTC, 42 weeks of gestation, 28 hours of pitocin-induced labor, and four hours of pushing to make.

It was well worth it.

She weighed 10 pounds 5 ounces at birth and was 22.5 inches long. She's bigger now at four weeks.

She was born on her dad's birthday, New Year's Eve.

She's named for her dad's great aunt and her mom's mom.

She was pretty much the best thing we've ever made.

And we're pretty sure we're going to keep her.

Oh, my! I love a nice, round baby. Mine was a 9 lb January baby with plump cheakies, too! Congratulations! I know that you're probably delirious from sleep, but remember that you're doing a great job and she will get past just sleeping, eating, and peeing. It gets more and more fun.
