baby phoebe

she is here. she is gorgeous. she has hair! she is addicting. she is happy and healthy. she was borderline bili-lights and kept my mom and me schlepping back and forth to labs and dr's offices for a few days. but we are in the clear (fingers crossed) and ready to just hang out together as a family.

here are all those unimportant details you've been craving...

the labor was so slow. which we couldn't understand as i usually go pretty quickly. but in hindsight, it was good news as i had no pain relief for a good chunk of time. i don't consider myself very wussy, but epidurals are pretty nice and i will take one as long as it is available. so i'm grateful that flaky nurse screwed things up so my body wasn't progressing, because i got one awesome epidural from one awesome anethesiologist and had one awesome delivery.
i am not kidding you. this delivery was so unbelievably easy that i WANTED TO DO IT AGAIN. yes, you read that right. 2 seconds after giving birth I WANTED TO HAVE ANOTHER BABY.
really, seriously, a mind-altering experience. i'm pretty sure my dr. walks on water. OH MY GOSH i still can't believe how easy it was. and the recovery has been a dream.which is nice considering i have 2 other monkeys at home also.

here she is. look at those rolls!

Congratulations! She is a doll and I'm so glad the delivery went well. It almost (but just almost :-) ) makes me want to have another one.

Love the photos. So glad Lucy is wanting to help. I'm sure Abby will want to more soon as well. Jacob was a bit unsure at first. Sometimes he loved looking at the baby, and sometimes he wanted nothing to do with him. Now they're good friends though. :)

Give her a kiss from her relatives in Texas!

I would have to agree, the Epidurals are great! I have had two great deliveries. The first time I thought "That's it? I was expecting it to hurt." Great doctor and great anesthesiologist.

Your pictures are great, and she is adorable. I am so happy you guys healthy and Happy.
