She is here!!!

This will be short...not because I have my hands full with a newborn but because the power has been out all day and I'm posting from my phone which is on its last fumes before it runs out of batteries...and I've got my hands full with a newborn!

My Hazy arrived on Thurs morning at 7:48.  I had the home birth that I wanted and she was born in the water.  There were no complications and everything went as perfectly as I could have hoped for.  I still am in disbelief.

Hazy weighed 7.7lbs and is 19 1/2 in long with a gorgeous full head of hair.  True to form she was a very mellow, lazy Hazy when she emerged.  Very alert but we had to irritate her to get her to cry so she could pink up.

We are working on breastfeeding which is fucking really hard.  We were up the entire night last night and she (both of us) was very upset.  I think things are getting better today and I'm praying my milk comes in ASAP!

Full birth story and shit tons of photos to follow...I'll try to make it sooner than later I promise!
