New Addition to the Family!




Valerie Anne
8 pounds, 2 ounces
20.5 inches long
Born Saturday March 26th, 2011 at 1:20am

She was born without any complications. Apparently we won three "awards" that night: cutest baby (which I think they tell everyone), most hair (I can agree to that), and quietest laboring mother. I did NOT have an epidural, by the way, and not by choice. So I'm amazed at how quietly I handled it! It was a fast labor; I pushed for maybe a minute, tops.

Val is doing very well, but a little fussy. Between her and my VERY jealous three year old, and the fact that my fiance has to go to work, my time is very limited.


Three days old. Yes she has eyebrows, they're just fine and pale blonde. Same thing with her eyelashes

"quietest laboring mother. I did NOT have an epidural"

Strong woman. My mom did the same, and I'm very thankful for it.

Many congratulations to you and your husband!

Did anyone else come into this thread expecting to see an announcement about a new fish? ('',)
