Emmeline Adele, now with (crappy) photo


Not a super great picture, but there she is! To me, she looks VERY feminine. That could just be that she's so tiny and delicate compared to The Child as a newborn. I can't stop staring at her. NEED TO GO TO SLEEP! Yarrr.

Born at 3:55 pm CST via unplanned C-section (I'm not anywhere near disappointed as I expected to be, don't feel like explaining here because I'm very sleepy), full head of dark dark fuzzy hair. Basically a very small version of newborn Grace with two weeks' less time to grow the full mop. 7 lb 14 oz, 19.5", has nursed twice like a pro, is so very tired now, please send her back into that warm, dark place, thanks.

I didn't have as long a labor leading up to the surgery this time, and the difference is like night and day. I'm awake and aware enough to just enjoy her and stare at her and then stare some more and then rub my nose in the top of her head. And oh my heck, she is tiny (to us).

Thanks for all the well-wishes. It was kind of a long, boring day, and coming back here to a few new notes every few hours was very nice.

Will post pictures when I get the chance.


  1. OMG this is WONDERFUL!!!! So happy for you & Jeremy!! Congrats hon!!! PS she has the best birthday EVER, just ask me & Stacie lol.
    love shan

  2. She's beautiful! Wow, look at all that hair! I think that's about as much as my girls had at one year! A pretty name, too.

    I'm so excited for you! I was telling people about you (which of course required the preface, "this blog that I read...") and how I couldn't wait to find out the news.

    I hope you get lots of rest and a good chance to recover. And let us know what Grace thinks of her new baby sister!

  3. I'm glad you're doing so well. Man, I am just sitting here staring at these pictures (this one and the two on twitter) and not writing anything. I am REALLY, REALLY happy for you!
