Little Miss Hannah Melinda arrived at 11:43am today (Sunday). She weighted in at an even 8 lbs. and measured 21 inches. Mom (that'd be me) and baby are doing just fine. Thank you all for your prayers!! They were greatly appreciated.
I'll post some details for you gossip hounds later.... like Monday or Tuesday. For now, little miss is sleeping & I'm getting ready to eat & sleep too.
G'night all!! |-]
Oh... here's a pic of her... and her big brother. This is the first time he'd seen her. He's admiring her nose--proof she's the same species as him! (We'll have to explain that men and women are different species later! :-D)
And if you're wondering why I'm the one posting when it's still Sunday, we had Little Miss here at home.... and the computer's nearby. :-)
No, still not yet. Had a good visit with the midwives Thursday. If the baby isn't here by Monday, I get to call my primary care physician to schedule an ultrasound... just to take a look-see and make sure everything is in order. So... we're all praying she decides to come this weekend. Y'all could join in those prayers iffen you'd like. They'll be appreciated! :-)
This is an interesting article... I think.... By which I mean I think it's interesting, rather than I think it's interesting. Confused?
And this is the line that struck me while I was reading it, with a bit of preceding text for context:
The world you live in—your nation, your people—is not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed.
We've settled. Well, settled sounds like we're not happy with our choice--we are. OK, so how about cemented?
The parent peoples have made up their minds on the name of the little one-to-come. Provided she comes out as a girl (ultrasounds have been known to be wrong before), her name will be .............. drum roll please ............
So.... now you know. Many thanks to all of you who contributed name suggestions. I still like Bart, but I think her dad would object!
...waiting for baby girl's stationary to arrive so I can start writing Thank You notes.... so I can get the gift bags unpacked & wash all those little pink outfits... and figure out what I still need before she gets here..... |-]
As a SAHM of 5 baby dragons (term of endearment, btw) there are days I crave adult interaction, days the thoughts rattling around amidst the cobwebs need to be let out, and days I simply on lurk on everyone elses' sites!
This blog is just my way to interact with a larger slice of Christendom than I am afforded "IRL." Please, if you have time, hit up my "Questions" label and share your wisdom with me. I don't do "Answers." LOL .... Maybe in another 50 years...
