Our Little Girl Has Arrived!

No more Tummywatch Tuesday! Baby girl finally decided to join us.

After 41 weeks and one day, she’s here: Vera Loraine Buckner, weighing 7 pounds and 2 ounces and measuring 21 inches long. Both of us are doing fine. Dad and big brother are as proud as can be.

Labor was about 11 hours from first contraction until finish—starting at about 1 AM Monday morning and ending with her grand entrance at 11:42 AM, 2/6/12.

OK, back to babyland and its marathon feeding, sleeping and snugging sessions. I’ll re-emerge again ASAP with photos and the birth story. Promise.

Also: Thanks for joining us on this crazy journey into expanded parenthood. Sincerely. We’re feeling incredibly happy, grateful and blessed.
