The moment I have been waiting for has come! Our newest Little One has arrived, and we couldn't be more blessed:
Newly born Friday afternoon, and already we can't remember
life without her (nor would we care to).
Babydoll was almost a pound heavier (8lb. 6oz.) than my previous heaviest baby. Since I didn't gain any extra weight, the midwife attributes it to the dietary changes I made this pregnancy. Fascinating stuff-but more on that later. Stay tuned-especially if you're interested in the Nourishing Traditions approach to healthy eating.
I'm gonna take a blogging break, but I'll be back. I can't let these days and nights of exhausted ecstasy pass without soaking up all that wonderful baby smell, as well as all the coos and cuddles I possibly can.
P.S. After a bit of research, we were able to determine the identity of that dark substance on her head. Having never witnessed it on any of our babies before, we were a little taken aback. But the verdict is in: It's hair.
