the stork has landed

our baby girl is here! she arrived on september 3 (10 days early and so officially not taking after her mama on the timeliness (or lack thereof) front), weighing 5 pounds 12 ounces (she's a small one) and measuring 18.5 inches long.

yesterday she turned seven weeks old, which seems impossible both because it seems too short and too long a time. days and nights and weeks all sort of run into each other and the only really certain thing is that life is a whole different ballgame now. (example: it is almost 10:30 and i am still in my robe. and my robe is covered with spit up.)

that's all i'm going to say for now, because i want to give the story and experience the attention and recounting it deserves, for you and for me and most especially for our baby girl. so, more to come. but suffice it to say, we are awed and  thrilled that baby b is here.
