We had our WIC appointment today. Etta weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces. She was 19 inches long. Elaina seemed like she had gained a lot of weight but she only gained 2 pounds in the past 2 years. Ben gained one pound. Elaina's iron and my iron was good. At least being a CLC got me out of hearing the breastfeeding education speech. All is good......

Eliot's eyes look a little spooky in the photo but they enjoyed making the arraignment. I really like burning beeswax candles. They clean the air and just put out a warm light. We need to collect some fresh mistletoe to add to it and it will just be about right.
Etta is pretty cute if I say so myself. She sleeps good as long as I am holding her just like a newborn should. She is nursing well. We are taking it easy and just hanging out at home. She is more alert everyday and definitely has regular sleep and waking periods. Overall she is a typical and wonderful baby. I really think having a natural birth has helped me bond quicker with Etta. Sweet baby welcome Earthside!!!

Baby girl is nursing really well. She hasn't had too much trouble latching. My milk has come in quickly. She is almost totally finished passing meconium. Way to go sweet pea. I am about to pump a little milk to ease some slight pre-engorgment. The last thing I need is a blocked duct or mastitis.

She is here!!! 7 pounds 1 ounce and 18.5 inches long of sweetness. Once I got to 5 centimeters or so things went quickly. We made it to the hospital by the time I was 6 centimeters. Right under 2 hours later our new daughter arrived. She was almost born in her sac. More details to come.....
