our new family!


our new family!, originally uploaded by MrsBinParis.

She's here, after 29 hours of labor. Long story, and I don't have the energy to write it now, but know that she's beautiful, and perfect, and has a heck of a set of lungs on her! (I just wish she didn't like to give us a concert every morning from 2-5.)

Rowan Amelia

born June 9, 2007; 8:03 AM

7 lbs. 5 oz., 19.5 inches long

Light brown hair, great big eyes, and she smells like a sugar cookie.

We love her so very much.

More later, when we've recovered a bit...

More pictures on my flickr page, and more to come.

Oh, and if you've tried to call, sorry--I don't often get a chance to answer the phone. When she's not eating, awake or screaming, I'm doing my very best to sleep. It doesn't always work, but I'm trying. I would love to hear from you soon, but will need a little time to adjust.

I was going to give you a call today or tomorrow, but I'm thinking that next week might be better. I TOTALLY understand. When we first brought Gab home, everything seemed so overwhelming because I was so tired, and that was only after 3 hours of labor. 29 hours- wow! You go girl!

I am SO happy for you all and hope that in a couple of years Rowan and Louise can play dolls together (or princesses, or house, or KNIT!) Hug to you all!

29 hours? You win. My sister's first was 26 and I thought that was long enough. But the result? Perfection! You all look lovely together and congratulations again!

She is indeed a very beautiful baby. I was so happy to meet my niece. I hope everything is going well, and call when you can or if you need anything. I hope you are getting little bits of rest. :)
