It's a Girl
It's a girl - 8lb 6oz! She has lots of dark curly hair and is a real beauty - has all her fingers and toes and is perfect in every way. Mom, baby and dad are doing fine, but Grandma needs a nap!!!!
Things started to move around four am for Butterfly. The Boy called us at 5:20 and said "You don't have to hurry, but you might want to come to the hospital now." Well, I did hurry and I am glad I did. We got to the hospital around 5:45, the doctor arrived 5 minutes later and didn't even have time to put his shoes on. The baby was born at 6:20 (or thereabouts). Butterfly had maybe three or four major contractions and Smudge popped out smooth as glass. Within seconds the baby had a good healthy cry going, and so did The Boy and I. AC/Grandpa was waiting out in the hall, but he could hear Smudge bellowing away, and was shedding a few tears of his own.
By 8am Butterfly was moved to her room, Smudge was all wrapped up in a tidy blanket and was being passed around for hugs from Grandma, Grandpa and of course Dad!!!!
I really do need a nap now, but will write more later and post lots and lots of pictures.
