Rough weekend...

As everyone who reads my blog knows, I was due to have a baby girl on New Year's Day.

That has changed. I went into labor Saturday morning. My tiny little snuggle bug was born Saturday afternoon, and will be going home with me today. She weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce; was 18.5 inches long; and was in a huge hurry. I got to the hospital at around 2:00 p.m., and she arrived two and a half hours later.

I've got some end of the semester stuff to wrap up, but will post pictures of both her and her brother after I post grades on Monday.

After that, I'll be back to my regular news and political commentary, which I'd been avoiding to try to keep from going into stress-induced labor.

  4. Thanks, guys. She is doing wonderfully, and her big brother seems to just adore her.

    Oldcatman--I'm sure you could just roll your own. You'd probably enjoy it more if you did. ;D

  7. Wonderful news. Take a breather. The news we have with us always, babies are only little for a short time.
